“There’s never an easy route to the things that matter.” ― Charles de Lint

“I have walked around the same streets so many times, and then seen a place that had been hidden to me. I now know the sites in a way that makes me think I could have made better use of the connections between place and snowball.” — Andy Goldsworthy

Welcome to Yarn and Zen, a place of creativity and centering, nestled in the woods of Kentucky.

Along with her family, several critters, and a host of wild things, owner Kim Upton brings imagination and harmony to those who visit. 

Currently Kim is seeing students and clients in her home studio, and delights in helping others find a path to their inner visionary voice.

“We cannot live in a world that is interpreted for us by others. An interpreted world is not a hope. Part of the terror is to take back our own listening. To use our own voice. To see our own light.”  - Hildegard of Bingen
