I have known Karin Strom for over 20 years. I have always admired and been inspired by her work in our (hand knitting) industry. Finally, after all these years she and I have had the chance to work one on one. Karin is a creative, forward thinker about industry issues and she examines all sides. In addition, her creative eye, and personal style and bent for fashion makes her the total package.

Karin’s artful eye, effortless style, and farmhouse chic aesthetic bring an easy beauty to any project she touches. That, paired with her ability to write snappy editorial copy, recognize the best talent for optimal team development, and creatively navigate challenges ranging from photo styling to budget constraints make her a valuable asset to any endeavor.
Sy Belohlavek | Founder, June Cashmere
Karin’s industry experience and connections helped lay the foundation for the processes of brand creation and market entry for June Cashmere. Being a relative newcomer to the yarn industry, it has been important to have someone like Karin to run ideas, plans, and expectations by to ascertain to what degree viability. As we have developed the company’s aesthetic, Karin’s sense of color and style has also served us well. Her calm demeanor has made for a comfortable working relationship and we remain appreciative for the contributions Karin has made to June Cashmere.
