Lindsey Ross took on the role of President of Urban Craft Uprising in the summer of 2006, right before UCU’s first show at the Seattle Center. In the summer of 2008, she stepped down from this role, taking on her current position as Director of Operations for UCU’s many shows throughout the year.
She is also the proud owner of Yarnia, a custom yarn shop in Portland, Oregon. After eight years of fervent knitting, she decided to open this one-of-a-kind yarn shop in Southeast Portland, as a creative and affordable way for knitters, crocheters, and weavers to achieve exactly the yarn they want for a project.
The fusion of crafting, getting to work with creative people, and getting to run not just one but two unique local businesses is pretty much all she could ask for. Living in Portland, she spends her free time biking, thrift shopping, crocheting, running in the rain, enjoying local microbrews with friends, camping, weaving, trying to keep up on her food blog, experimenting with fermentation in all its forms, knitting, and taking a minute to appreciate a really good cup of coffee.
