Rep on the Road - Betsy Westman, By Land & Air

Northern California/North Nevada is a large, rugged territory, so it's a good thing that our sales rep there is accustomed to travel. Weekdays, Betsy Westman brings Classic Elite Yarns to shops from  Monterey to Eureka, Sacramento to Petaluma and Reno to Minden. 

Then on weekends, she's a flight attendant with Virgin America! Is it obvious that she loves to travel?!

Betsy has a long history in the yarn industry. A sales rep for ten years, her mom owned a yarn shop years prior. Betsy worked with her mom purchasing yarns for the shop. A lifelong knitter, she has also designed for major magazines and yarn companies and even worked as a model for yarn companies.

These days, the call of the road has diminished just a bit with the birth of a new grandchild. Look at this sweet, pumpkin of a baby!

But Betsy's love of yarn & knitting, yarn shops & and the people who love them is too strong to keep her from bringing the best yarns to shops in the Golden and Silver States!
