FIBER LAB: New Textile Arts Supply Store Takes Over in Menomonie
5 Sep 2023
Fans of sewing, knitting, embroidering, and crocheting are about to be hooked. Fiber Lab –in the former location of Thread Lab, 301 Main St. E, Suite A, Menomonie – is the hub for all things textile crafting – and learning about how to get started!
Owner Kris Isaacson, a lifelong lover of sewing, earned her degree in Apparel, Design, and Manufacturing at UW-Stout where she became a huge fan of Menomonie, including Thread Lab. After receiving her degree, she moved to St. Cloud, Minnesota, where she put together a plan to open up a yarn store there. Timing and other factors prohibited her from continuing on the venture until she saw in an online newsletter from the Thread Lab explaining that the owners were selling the business.
