Before 1997, Keely led a double life. During the day, she worked as a CPA in an accounting office, but as soon as she stepped out of her office, she transformed into a sweater designer. Each night, she mailed out patterns and knitting kits until she collapsed into bed. The day finally came when she had to choose between her two lives, and that's how Sealed With a Kiss was born.
Today, her store bustles with activity. A staff of knowledgeable, crafty ladies helps shoppers navigate the aisles, which overflow with skeins of soft, colorful yarn. They also lead lessons, during which they teach newcomers basic stitches and instruct more advanced students on techniques such as crocheting slippers, knitting fingerless gloves, or felting whole sheep.
