is now CEO of Skacel, the company her parents started over 26 years
ago. Skacel distributes yarns and the addi line of knitting needles and
crochet hooks to independent yarn shops throughout North America.
Karin’s interests are varied and have followed creativity, whether it is in
glass, fabric, or fiber, and color has always been paramount!
Chuck learned to knit in the summer of 2007, and his strong passion
for all things fiber turned into his career nearly 3 years ago when he
joined the Skacel team as Director of New Product Research & Development. Chuck is responsible for selecting new yarns and other
products carried by Skacel. In addition, Chuck has been instrumental
in producing The Fiber Factor, the knitting design competition put on by
Karen Skacel
Skacel does more than provide us with Addi Turbo’s, Lace & Sock Rocket, which are the BEST
NEEDLES in the world, they do yarn and fiber as well. We will have garments
for most of the yarns we stock which makes the yarn come alive. SimpliWorsted,
Kenzie, CoBaSi, Pur, & Kid Seta. Skacel is the creative genius and sponsor of The
Fiber Factor which provides a stage for knitwear designers very similar to Project
Runway. One of our favorite designers, Josh Bennett is a mentor to the designers.
