Carol Sigrist, who owned Yarn Garden in Lawrenceville said of her mission over the past 15 years, "It's never changed. I always wanted to keep people happy knitting yarn."

A finished product. "Hiawatha, The Leader We Need" by America Garcia, a senior at Mill Creek High School.

And run forward with such fleetness,

~ Excerpt from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s epic poem “The Song of Hiawatha” (1855)
