Mimi Fautley is a lifelong crafter who turned a passion for textiles into a career when she opened The Loop with two business partners in 2005. While she has a rich technical understanding of yarn and knitting, she never tires of helping beginners discover the joy making things by hand, so you'll find her sometimes instructing the classes at the The Loop. Mimi took over The Loop as sole owner in 2013.

Morgan Forrester has been with The Loop since 2006. Her diverse interests, wit and intelligence are an important part of what make The Loop a great place to shop and learn. She is always happy to share her skills and insight, particularly with regards to deciphering vintage and historical needlework. She is The Loop’s resident crochet instructor.
