The Lemonade Shop is currently run out of Castle Rock, CO by Heather Rhoads.   She says currently because she is a Chicago girl at heart and misses the city so much, so she is sure there is a move to be had at some point. Heather fell in love with color at New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL where they had an amazing art department and after that she attended a private design school in Chicago where she left with honors. There could be a long drawn out story about how she got started dyeing yarn but it's really simple, she loves big bold color, loves yarn and loves knitting and crocheting. Heather is also an avid lover of cake. 

Heather’s husband Christopher works for the shop full time so they are a true family run business. Heather and Chris met at work so they are used to working together, a question they get asked all the time. They have been at this for about 7 years and haven't killed each other yet, so they are calling it a win! Their daughter Grace is in High School and can be found helping with making the new stitch markers they recently added to their shop.

It's not very riveting, but they love it!
