Justine Malone
 Cast Away Yarn
Owner/Instructor Yarn Department

Justine decided to open Cast Away after dreaming of having a retail shop in Railroad Square for years. With her love of knitting, color, and retail merchandising, plus a background in small business, a yarn shop was the perfect fit. She is involved in the Railroad Square Neightborhood Association and lives nearby - she is very devoted to small business and Railroad Square. When you come in the shop you're likely to see her adorable little dog Olive who will charm her way into your heart, as she has thousands before you.
Isla Corbett
 Folk Modern Craft
Owner/Instructor Sewing Department

Born in Africa to British parents, Isla's love for fiber arts was nurtured at an early age when she learned to knit and sew during summers visiting her grandmothers in Scotland. Earning her degree in Three Dimentional Design with a major in Plastics, Isla eventually found herself drawn back to more natural materials and sewing. She arrived in Santa Rosa from Scotland 14 years ago and began her own business handcrafting modern wool felt goods. She sells her work at craft shows in San Francisco and various stores. Visit Isla at where you can see all of her beautiful work.
Leslee Fiorella
 Folk Modern Craft
Owner/Instructor Weaving Department

With a degree in Textile Design and a focus in weaving, Leslee's professional path led her to New York City where she designed woven fabrics for the textile industry. She honed her modern sensibility working for such iconic companies as Knoll and Maharam. Her spirit of creative experimentation in fiber over the years has also led her to felting, needlecraft and sewing, all of which she continues to pursue and enjoy. Yet Leslee still defines weaving as her true medium and the core of her creative soul. Visit Leslee at Slow and Woven to see her work and to follow her blog.
