The inspiration for Rita Mae Yarns....
My name is Cortni O'Hara, Rita Mae Clasen was my great-grandmother. She passed away in 2014 due to stage 4 bladder cancer. She was a great part of my life and was an amazing fiber artist. She inspired me to learn more about the needle arts and ever since that time, I have fallen in love with the craft. I named my business after her to honor her memory and remember she stemmed my love for the fiber arts.
We thank you so much for your business and support, and look forward to serving you and our community for years to come!
