Fashion-knit owner Jeanine Johnson has the art form stitched into her family history. Her grandmother sewed upscale garments for Saks Fifth Avenue, and her mother received her fashion degree from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology. Johnson's passion for knitting is evident in the colorful sweaters she crafts, as well as in the classes she offers to knitters of all skill levels. In addition to hands-on sessions, Johnson brings knitting experts to the store for workshops, where they share tips on how to enhance projects or how to re-create favorite attire if one's closet spontaneously combusts.
