MEET OUR TEAM

The Goat Gang That Makes It All Possible

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.

MELISSA JOHNSON

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!

CAROLINA KIDWELL-BOZEMAN

Carolina teaches at Fuzzy Goat and is the one who is putting your packages together. She has been knitting since the age of 9and 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. Carolina is in training to be an elementary school teacher - a passion she discovered while working with our visiting students from Harper Elementary.

MADELYN ZORN

is a recent graduate from Thomasville University who grew up watching her grandmother crochet and sew. Madelyn learned to knit with her mom right here at the Fuzzy Goat. She sees knitting asa 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 as the Social Media Maven.

OUR TEACHERS

LADANYA RAMIREZ SURMEIR

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!

BARBARA BELIVEAU

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.
