I have been knitting, crocheting and sewing for years, and in the past I have ventured into selling my creations with some success. Since we moved back to the UK two years ago I have intended to start up again, but for one reason or another it has been put on the back burner. Last spring I decided I really wanted to give it another go, but the store engine I tried to use kept having problems so I lost heart once again. My wonderful other half, Ric, came to my rescue, and slowly (oh so slowly) started to build me a custom store.
Today, the store went live! I am so excited to finally be able to announce this!
I have listed what’s left of the stock that I made when we lived in Canada plus the few things I have made since we got back to the UK. I will be continuing to make and list new stuff after the holidays when life is less hectic, but for now there is plenty to choose from if you fancy doing a bit of last minute christmas shopping!
Everything in the store is hand made by me personally. I use environmentally friendly materials where I can source them, and knit, crochet and sew at home in my spare time. I design my own patterns or just make things up as I go along, so there are some unique and possibly slightly quirky items on offer.
I am not a fan of mass production, corporate control and boring shopping experiences. I want to live in a world where people are able to exercise their creativity, shop for items that have been made with love and care, and appreciate the craftsmanship that went into the things they own. I hope that my little store can bring a bit of these ideals into the world and maybe inspire others to give it a try as well.
Please take a look and if you like what you see, make a purchase or help spread the word.
