In 1981, Marianne Horchler decided to offer retail wool, basic supplies, and spinning lessons at the family farm in Genoa, NY.  In 1995, The Woolery became one of the first fiber arts suppliers with a website. After selling the farm, Tim and Marianne moved the business to Murfreesboro, North Carolina in 2001.

Chris & Nancy Miller bought the business in 2009 and moved it to historic Downtown Frankfort, Kentucky where they expanded locations twice.  

In 2015, current owners Wave & Perri McFarland purchased The Woolery, upgraded and expanded retail space yet again, improved the online experience, and expanded the classroom accommodations!

We are proud to be a family-owned small business for over 40 years, and look forward to serving the fiber arts community all over the world for years to come!
