About Us


We’re Carol and Pete Sickman-Garner, co-owners of Spun and purveyors of yarn, fiber, and all sorts of lovely, craft-happy goods and tools. Located in Ann Arbor’s historic Kerrytown neighborhood, our shop is a family-owned, community-focused space where all are welcome. We offer a Community Giving program that supports the work of non-profits in our area.

Looking for the right tools for your next big project? Need a friendly guide to make sense of the landscape as you start out? We’re happy to help. Our classes and events—including lots of free Spun staff-hosted drop-ins—provide a supportive environment where makers of all levels can find joy in being crafty.

Our Inspiration

We opened Spun in 2015 in a spirit of openness and exploration. We believe that handwork brings people together and that crafting is for everyone. It gives us a way to slow down and work a little magic with our own hearts and hands. Our goal is to give folks a comfortable and encouraging space to simply be.

Come create with us!
