Hi I’m Rae Blackledge, designer of Extravayarnza patterns. I also owned Rae’s Yarn Boutique in Lansing, MI until Dec 2012.
In 2013 I relocated to beautiful Charlotte, NC and I worked as the in-house designer for Willow Yarns from 2013 - March 2017.
I’ve now become a design manager at Premier Yarns and am excited to continue my design work, both as Extravayarnza and for Premier Yarns.
Yarn Shops, my patterns are specifically designed to be yarn shop friendly. My patterns are available at LYS’s through the Ravelry in-store sales program.
