About us



Brenda Hedstrom

Owner, Southern Twist Yarns

Growing up in a creative family environment gave me the foundation to explore many crafts, but I always returned to needlework. As a young girl, I learned to knit and crochet from my mother and grandmother, but as often happens motherhood and a career left me with little time and my needles and hooks often got tucked away. I did find time to crochet afghans for my three sisters and soon baby blankets, sweaters, and booties followed. Eventually, a good friend gave me the nudge I needed to dust off the knitting needles and now they are rarely far from my hands. No matter where my husband and I travel, the closest yarn shop is always on radar. He patiently waits, no matter how long, while I search for that perfect colorway. When the opportunity to finally open my own shop arose, there was no looking back
