Darn Good Yarn is built on the support and creativity of hundreds of artisans around the world! These artisans are the incredible people that sew sari wrap skirts, hand make reclaimed yarn, stitch kantha quilts, weave rugs, carve yarn bowls, and so much more.

One of these marvelous artisans is Mamta (pronounced Mom-tah) who is a new teammate in the same group as PradeepSoniya, Veena and Bajrangi. This team works together to create handmade wooden notions and tools such as yarn bowls, yarn combs, and yarn swifts.

New to the team, Mamta is learning the required skills to make wooden products, shadowing each of her teammates to learn every aspect of the job from start to finish! She’s an incredibly shy down-to-earth type of person who is loving the independence that her new job provides her. 

Mamta has told us that her favorite part of her new job is the respect and equality that she has found among her new work family. As a part of that family, we want to make her feel as welcome and valued as possible!
