Meet Our Team

These are the folks who help Cadence out with the shop, classes and events. They freely share tips, can wax on and on about yarns and are the best project cheerleaders you could want.

We are a shop that is committed to doing our part and using our powers and resources for good to promote diversity, inclusion, equity and anti-racism. We welcome all identities including, but not limited to diversity among race, ethnicity, religion, age, gender, LQBTQIA, and mental and physical abilities.


"I am proud that we stand for equity and are still whimsical"

Melissa is your Yarnista helping you plan your projects, texting you back & taking your phone orders! Melissa is an avid knitter, especially of sweaters (tennis & bridge player too). She taught herself to knit when she was living in Rhode Island right after college. She has three kids that keep her busy so we are very fortunate to have her serving alongside us as our Operations Maven! You can also see Melissa in her weekly Facebook Live: Sweaters Together (No Matter the Weather).


"I am proud of how many people we make happy!"

Carolina is the one who is putting your packages together and planning your curated boxes. She has been knitting since the age of 9 and picked it back up in college where she benefited from the meditative process of knitting instead of focusing only finishing the project. There is nothing more satisfying to her than spreading the therapeutic, creative and joyous qualities inherent in knitting by being our Fulfillment Maven


"I am proud that we are setting people up for a future, hopeful experience"

Madelyn grew up watching her grandmother crochet and sew. A graduate from Thomas University with a degree in English, Madelyn learned to knit with her mom right here at the Fuzzy Goat. She sees knitting as a creative process that values a more sustainable approach to fashion. In her spare time, Madelyn also enjoys writing and photography, and her love of storytelling and eye for color lend themselves both to a love for knitting and her role with us our Design Maven.



Ladanya first learned to knit with a friend, but only knew the two main stiches for many years. After taking the Building Blocks series she gained the confidence to take on more challenging projects. She loves knitting lace patterns because they are nice and airy. She is looking forward to learning more techniques like Fair Isle and eventually making a sweater!


Diana has been knitting since elementary school and loves to say she'd much rather knit than do housework. She is a long-time friend of the shop she has knit lots our samples. 


Kit moved to a 62-acre farm in Grady County with her husband and daughter where they have been diligently renovating their farmhouse. Kit's grandmother taught her how to crochet when she was about 10 years old. Kit says; "At my husband’s urging, I revived my crocheting skills a few years ago. In a few short months I went from crocheting uneven, lopsided scarves to creating unique “rag” dolls and animals."


Kim learned to crochet one summer when she was about 11, and her grandmother got tired of her telling her she was bored. Kim is learning to knit, but crochet is so dear to her heart because she watched her great-grandmother, both grandmothers, mother, stepmother, and now her own 3 (grown) children crochet. Knowing it’s a family tradition they can share makes her happy! Kim is a budget manager for a state agency, her husband and she are almost empty nesters who are looking forward to travels in the future. Besides crochet, she really enjoys reading, baking, and watching pollinators and birds. 


Barbara learned to knit at age 5 and has been happily exploring fiber arts ever since. She is currently addicted to lace knitting and spinning fiber for SAORI style weaving but always has time for intriguing projects.


Susan has been knitting since she was a teenager. She is always looking for projects where a new skill or technique is learned. In her day job she provides training for a software company. Teaching knitting classes allows her to combine her training experience with her love of knitting. She is a huge Ravelry fan, where you can find her as SusanJ.
