|Marji LaFreniere has always loved colors and making things. In 1988 she bought the yarncarft shop then located at Simsbury Town Shops and changed the name to ‘Marji’s Yarn Craft’.
Later Marji moved her store her 150-year-old historic home on Salmon Brook Road where she is till this day. With the store right next door to her home she is able to do what she loves while raising her three kids and watching them grow.
