Founded in 2013 Rêverie is a boutique dedicated to retailing high-quality yarn, home decor, and gifts.

 

 

But, we strive to be more than that.

When the previous yarn shop in Goshen decided to close after seven years, Sher thought it may be time to move on from the yarn business. One by one, six new partners appeared, and the seeds of a new shop began to take root. Can seven women run a business together? Sher, Trish, Linda, Melissa, Kelli, Rose, and Marci think so

We seek to engage with our customers, offering a wide variety of events to tickle your creativity and inspire you. We strive to help you grow in soul and mind. Our staff share the vision of creating a beautiful space with quality products that are made to inspire. We value giving back to our community, both through acts of charity and being present and active within Goshen's thriving downtown. 

The definition of Rêverie is: daydream. Metaphorically, a gathering of wool, so to speak.

It is a shop of dreams.

Let our staff introduce themselves to you below! 

 

The Rêverie Team

MAGGIE SCHNAARS - Knitting and Crochet Class Instructor and Designer     Maggie Schnaars (a.k.a. The Knit Doctor) has been a Goshen resident for 20 years.  She knits non-stop, slowing down only to sleep. She enjoys being a partner at Reverie and assisting fellow crafters by helping them to improve their skills in big or small ways.  Maggie teaches knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning, and felting (wet and needle). Her favorite hour of the week is leading the Kids Knit Too! Class on Friday afternoons. Young crafters inject fun and laughter in her week.

KELLI KING - Gift Expert     “I'm knowledgeable about several of the gift areas such as the cards, SACS soap, Paperblanks journals, candles, and some of the antiques.  I love being surrounded by the yarn and all the colors, textures and fibers they are available in. In fact, I've enjoyed that so much that I've taken up knitting with the help of all my partners.  My other hobby is gardening, flowers and perennials primarily, but my husband and I also grow a variety of vegetables. My professional life is as a dietitian/nutritionist at Vista Community Health Center in Goshen.

LINDA ALTENHOFF - Customer Service and Gift Specialist     Linda retired in 2005 from a rewarding 28-year career as a Medical Secretary. After retirement, she attempted several different hobbies to occupy her newly discovered spare time. Sewing, scrapbooking and other activities were fun but didn’t provide the satisfaction she was looking for. In 2006, she saw a picture of Martha Stewart wearing a crocheted poncho, and absolutely loved it! She paid someone to make one for her and then realized that working with yarn might be the answer to her need for a meaningful hobby. Linda was already in her 50’s, but she wanted to try this craft. She learned to knit from some very good teachers and became more proficient than she ever thought she could be. The opportunity to become a partner in Reverie was offered and she accepted. Her partners are highly skilled knitters, but her specialty is excellent customer service. Linda truly enjoys engaging with Reverie’s customers and making sure they have a great shopping experience.

JULENE FITCH- Knitting and Crochet Class Instructor and Designer   Julene Fitch (a.k.a. Knitting Queen) has enjoyed knitting and crocheting since she was 9 years old. She was inspired to learn when her paternal grandmother sent her a hand knitted afghan. She became determined to learn the craft despite not having a teacher and so taught herself out of the K volume of the encyclopedia. For many years, she worked mostly in crochet as she had mastered that. She has always loved learning new skills and in the past 10 years determined that she would become a faster knitter. To that end, she determined that her knitting projects would be focused on challenging herself with new techniques. She is never not knitting and carries a “go bag” of knitting with her so that she will have something to work on wherever she is. She has further explored the world of fiber arts and has added spinning and weaving to her skill set. She is very passionate about her love for the fiber arts and finds tremendous joy in it.  In addition to her love for fiber arts, she has been teaching in the field of special education for 15 years. It is her love for teaching that bridges these two worlds as she loves to help others gain the skills they desire to create beautiful things and instill the confidence to keep learning.
