Third Piece Knitwear previously had only an online and “pop up” presence. After the company received a $150,000 loan from the BLDC, owner Kristen Lambert opened an exciting new retail store in the South End. The company is a wholesaler and retailer of yarn and craft made knitwear products. The new store features knitwear, yarn and knitting kits, and also has a dedicated space for knitting classes and other events. This woman-owned enterprise currently employs 6 people and supports the work of 10 craft knitters, most of them self-employed women.
