Nancy Fauntleroy, Zen Master
Nancy is just the kind of person you want to find when you walk into a knit shop. Her humble demeanor belies her breadth of knowledge, particularly since she has only been knitting for a couple of years. Nancy knows our stock inside out and can help find the perfect yarn for your project. You'll find Nancy's smiling face here on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings.
Margaret Brady, Owner and Calming Influence
Margaret took over as top dog at Knit on Pearl in November 2016. She is a pillar of the Jackson community with 20+ years of leadership at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, running race crews and managing special events. Knitting is Margaret's happy place and she gets to knit sometimes for 20 or 30 seconds at a stretch, before she needs to jump up and chase her son Max, who is almost two. We're so happy to have Margaret as the newest member of the team.
Mags Shale, Black Diamond Knitter
Mags hails from north of the border, but has been in Jackson long enough to be considered a local. Her penchant for comfy sweaters keeps Mags knitting late into the evening after a long day working on the slopes. We are so lucky to have her energy running the show on Saturdays, with the help of her daughter Cadel and adorable pup Maisy.
Erin Landry, Director of Athletics
Erin joined the Knit on Pearl team in 2011. When she's not finding the perfect yarn for your project, you'll find her donning fishnets and skates and flexing her muscles as "Tammy Gunn," of the Jackson Hole Juggernauts roller derby team. Erin loves bright colors not necessarily found in nature. She's at Knit on Pearl on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, usually accompanied by Ferris the wonder dog.
Nikki Escalada, Our Favorite Millenial
Originally from New England, Nikki moved to Jackson in the summer of 2016. Nikki is such a great knitter she knits dresses with lace patterns that look great on her long, lanky frame! Nikki works on Thursdays and Fridays, and usually is in the shop for Knit Nite.
Stephanie Williams, Director of Mirth
Self-taught and brilliant, Stephanie can get even the most tangled knitter out of a jam. She is most often spotted knitting exquisite cashmere blend sweaters. Look for the pink bike in the rack outside, and you'll know Stephanie is here to help. You'll find her there for sure on Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
Rachel Stam, Owner Emeritus
Rachel founded Knit on Pearl and ran the shop for 20 years through coming of age, marriage, motherhood, becoming a CPA and starting her own accounting business. She decided that, since she was unable to conjure 32 hours in a day, and needed to sleep once or twice a week, it was time to pass the needles to a new owner. We hope that, once hockey mom season is over, we'll see her in the shop now and then to just sit and knit awhile.
Carolyn Little, Fanatic
Carolyn has worked at Knit on Pearl since she moved to Jackson in 2008. Carolyn Knits compulsively. There is no fiber conundrum too large, nor gauge too small. Teaching and helping customers at Knit on Pearl keeps Carolyn sane. For this, her family is thankful. Carolyn is often lurking around the shop on her off days, but you'll almost always find her there on Monday and Thursday mornings.
