Introducing the founder of Made From Yarn: Joanne Loh

Made From Yarn is the brainchild of founder Joanne Loh. She has cultivated her childhood interest for all things yarn into a successful lifelong passion in the areas of crocheting, knitting and sewing just to name a few.

Growing up she watched with wide-eyed inspiration as her grandmother and mother spun beauty out of balls of yarn using their sewing machines. With only her older sisters having had the opportunity to learn crocheting, Joanne eagerly took their equipment and began her self-taught journey into the world of yarn.

Why was Made From Yarn created?

A lot of things in our daily lives are made from yarn.

In all her years of designing and creating crafts, Joanne realized the beauty of transforming a simple ball of yarn into practical objects, like clothes, bags, and home decor, or toy items such as amigurumi. This realization of being able to customize and manipulate yarn fascinated her greatly.

“I want more people to have the ability to put together the potential of yarn and some of that eagerness I had as a child to learn to create a beautiful work of art.”
Joanne Loh, founder of Made From Yarn
