Meet visual designer and entrepreneur, Felicia Lo, born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. In 2005, she founded Sweet Georgia Yarns, an artisan hand-dyed yarn company that expresses her passionate, relentless, and unapologetic love of color. In this episode, Felicia explains why she got into and an industry "saturated" with hand-dyers (no pun intended). Driven by a desire to dye yarns that she wanted to work with personally, she became passionate about the process and hand-dying her own yarns became an artistic expression. Felicia followed this as her compass, which led to the success she experiences today.
