Maridee and Barbra (Co-Founders) share a passion for the knitting and crocheting. They met in 2010 at a Tuesday night knitting group and were fast friends. One night at group, Maridee mentioned she was thinking about opening a yarn store. She had a name and a location all picked out, , but the financial realities of a brick and mortar yarn store seemed overwhelming. During her weekly knitting class at work, Barbra brought up her friend’s yarn store idea. It was always a dream of Barbra’s, too, but, like Maridee, it always seemed just out of reach. One of the members of the knitting group suggested a yarn truck and immediately Barbra was enamored with the idea. Hours of Google research on mobile retail business and one overwhelmingly long email to Maridee later, they found themselves on Melrose talking with one of LA’s first mobile boutiques. On July 5, 2012 the Yarnover Truck was born.
