About

My Little Studio

My name is Melina Martin Gingras and I am a yarnaholic turned fiberista, dyer, and designer. I am a self-proclaimed superhero and a mother of three kiddos: Peanut, Sharky, and newest baby, Ola. My passion for the arts is what inspired me to begin expressing myself through yarn dyeing, knit and crochet design.

I enjoy sharing my love of yarn with others and expressing myself as an artist using yarn as a medium. I owned a yarn shop for 4 years in Milwaukee's Bay View neighborhood. I participate in Knit Picks’ Independent Designer Program and now self-publish patterns for OMG Yarn (Balls) on Etsy and run a blog with tutorials and fun articles to help other fiber artists take their craft to the next level.

Additional policies and FAQs
Hand dyed yarn is made in an animal-friendly, smoke-free environment.

All yarn is stored, sold and shipped from my smoke-free studio located in Racine, WI, but please be aware that all yarn is dyed in a cat-friendly, smoke-free environment (yarn is always isolated to keep our cat and dog away from it).

Every effort is made to ensure that knit projects and hand dyed yarns do not come in contact with our cat and dog (who usually are more interested in me than the yarn, go figure). Even so, I still recommend washing according to instructions prior to use in case of any allergies.

Yarn is dyed with professional acid dyes and washed thoroughly. Darker yarn colors may still experience some color bleeding, so wash with like colors.

I pride myself on excellent customer serivce. If you have any further issues or concerns about your transactions with OMG Yarn (Balls), LLC, please contact me as soon as possible.

I endeavor to provide items of the highest quality. If you are unsatisfied with your service, please contact me immediately.
