About HoALM

House of A La Mode began as an artist-owned indie-dyed-yarn company that has grown into a full-service yarn shop.

Heather was born and raised in the Portland, Oregon area. Prior to being a hand dyer, Heather's first foray into the world of crafts was sewing, which was an easy choice for relaxation while raising a child with autism. She's published a book, Pillow Pop, and continues to dye fabric and create beautiful pieces. In late 2014, her craft world expanded when she began dyeing yarn in her home studio. Her unique eye for color has made HoALM yarns an indie staple for nearly a decade.

Heather and Beth met in 2014 at a now-shuttered LYS in SE Portland where Beth was working (the very first shop that featured House of A La Mode!). They became fast yarny friends and have worked together at HoALM since 2017. Beth should have written a bio by now but has not. Sorry guys.

House of A La Mode expanded into a brand concept store located in historic downtown Gresham in 2020 which has since relocated east through the spectacular Columbia River Gorge to The Dalles. You will, of course, find our house brand of HoALM as well as a wonderful selection of products from other amazing companies we love. House of A La Mode is a welcoming and inclusive space for all levels of yarn crafts.

Inclusion / Values Statement

We want you to feel welcome in this space. That goes for our digital spaces and our physical shop space. HoALM was founded on the idea that when we come together, we do great things. Regardless of your skin color, size, ability, gender expression, or sexual orientation, we want you to feel welcome to sit with us. In an effort to create a space that is welcoming for all we've been intentional to:

  • Collaborate with designers, vendors, and artists who are vocal in their stance against anti-blackness, and purposefully source items from BIPOC-owned businesses.
  • Carry products at a range of price points to make our shop accessible.
  • Pay employees and collaborating artists a living wage.
  • Manage our digital spaces and eradicate hate speech; monitor our physical space to provide a welcoming environment — hatred or intimidation of any kind will not be tolerated and violators will be asked to leave the premises.
  • Be teachable — we can't go it alone, and frankly, we don't want to. We recognize that removing racism and anti-black sentiments from our society is an ongoing mission, and is not a destination. We commit to educating ourselves about racism. We know that what works today, might not work tomorrow as we continue to learn and make changes to be better. If you have comments or would like to see something different, please email us.

This space is for you, and we hope that you'll feel welcome to come and sit with us.
