#33 - Kristine Vejar on Textiles, Dyeing, and the Politics of Fabric

May 18, 2015

Kristine Vejar runs A Verb for Keeping Warm, a store that sells yarn, fabric, knitting & sewing supplies, and clothing in north Oakland. It's also a classroom, a natural dyeing studio and garden, and home to an adorable French Angora rabbit named Marcel.

Kristine and I talked about how she got into textiles and dyeing in the first place, and how she came to find herself owning this business. We also talked about how Verb is more than just a store for selling yarn, but a place for her to advance her secret fabric agenda.
