About GingerBeezCreations

Sales 14
On Etsy since 2017

I strive to make unique & beautiful things while being kind to our planet by being waste free, reusing, upcycling & choosing natural fibres.

My name is Mellissa and I am the designer/creator of GingerBeez Creations. I am a lover of many different handicrafts, particularly crochet. I also love to paint, draw, but a, espeially drawn to the fiber arts. In addition to crochet, I can weave, sew and spin, and am always looking for new techniques to incorporate into my work. I also love to share my skills by teaching others these traditional arts. I have taught many people how to crochet and love helping other people learn new skills. I have recently started offering my patterns for sale, both on Etsy and Ravelry.

I am a full-time parent of three energetic boys, (my "Busy Bees") and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to set my career aside to be able to spend this time with them. It also gave me the freedom to work on projects I enjoy, which is what started me on my foray into selling my handmade creations. After years of making gifts and custom orders for others here and there, and a year of selling on my Facebook page, I decided to open an Etsy shop to share my products with a wider audience.

My focus is on high quality, unique handmade products that are made to last. I have 25+ years of experience making all kinds of crochet creations, so you can be sure your handmade treasure is made with skill and superior quality.

Perhaps most importantly, I try by best to reduce my impact on the environment by using mainly upcycled yarn purchased from other makers (partial skeins, unused yarn that has been sitting around in their stash) as well as choosing local Canadian natural fibers when I need to purchase new. I love to buy from small artisan shops and farms when I travel to support local businesses and find inspiration for my makes. My shop has always been waste free: every last little bit of yarn is used, right down to the tiniest of trimmings, which is either re-spun into recycled yarn, or used as stuffing.

I really hope you enjoy my shop, thank you for visiting! Please feel free to contact me for custom requests or support for any of my published patterns that you have purchased.
