Since 1989, I've worked for large independent bookstores in San Francisco and Oakland, for various publishers—from hippie independents like Ten Speed Press—to multimillion dollar corporate companies such as Harcourt to educational publishers like the University of California Press.
But my life long love has always been bookselling.
Bookstores are an oasis for challenging times. They are a place to give voice to those who would be silenced, solace to those who are in strife, knowledge to those who are seekers.
Welcome to Two Rivers Bookstore — at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers—where you’ll also find a confluence of independent thinkers, readers and community.
Weird Sisters is a neighborhood yarn shop located in St. Johns, Portland, Oregon. Our name is inspired by the Witches of Shakespeare's Scottish Play and the Three Fates that spin the thread of destiny.
Weird Sisters isn't just about selling yarn, we want to inspire and support the outsiders, the readers, the witches, the dreamers, and everyone else throughout their creative journey. We strive to provide opportunities for fiber education and accessible quality products for yarn crafters of all kinds.
We value reuse, making, sustainable fibers and building a community with our own two hands. Our classes and workshops go beyond knitting and crochet. We welcome you to stop by and learn with us.
