Hello. My name is Vera Mekash and I am the owner of Slip Stitch Avenue, LLC, located in the historic City of Bordentown, New Jersey. I have been knitting and crocheting for more than three decades. I love learning new techniques and sharing them with others. Turning balls of yarn into something I can wear feels amazing! Right now, I must confess, I have a bit of a sock addiction, and no plans to do anything about it.
