A Madison native, Lynette Tucker learned to knit from her mother when she was 9 years old. Her interest rekindled several years ago and blossomed when she joined a neighborhood knitting group. It was during one winter gathering when someone in her knitting group mentioned the loss of yet another dedicated yarn shop. They recognized that these are more than retail spaces. Yarn shops are sources of inspiration, education, relaxation and connection. The seed was planted.
Not long after, Lynette and her husband, Tom, were walking past a nearby corner store and peeked in the window. The owner of Fit 2 Eat, the cozy building overlooking Glenway Golf Course said she was selling. Intuitively, Lynette said she was looking to buy.
When the purchase was finalized on June 1, 2020, Sunset Yarn LLC was created!
Sunset Yarn opened November 2, 2020 with a very soft opening due to COVID-19. Lynette is open for business Tuesday – Saturday and offers curbside pick-up. She carries four local venders and several very popular brands to choose from.
