Announcement    The shop is fully stocked! Yay! My local postal driver now picks up orders every weekday except Canadian holidays. I will keep sending kits to hands and hearts that need a little calming for as long as I am confident that is is safe for me (and you!) to do so, the mail is still operating, and I still have materials. I'm washing my hands... a lot, and keeping the studio extra clean using bleach. (It smells like fresh laundry in here.) Please note that due to COVID19, delivery delays are common and to be expected. They are usually just a couple of days, but can be longer. Thank you for your patience.

Stay safe, stay kind.

Modern embroidery kits for crafty folk.

Greetings from Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia! I'm Laurie Dolhan, a "thalassophile" (aka ocean lover) making a life by the sea in the beautiful community of Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia with my husband, Trevor, and our son James.

In 2016, I immersed myself in embroidery, including designing my own patterns. As Hook, Line & Tinker, I design fresh and modern embroidery patterns and kits using my own original illustrations. By using a variety of basic stitches (and easy-to-follow instructions) my designs are simple enough for beginners but dynamic enough for more experienced stitchers.

I love seeing how other people make and display their finished projects. Since launching Hook Line & Tinker in November 2017, my designs have found happy stitchers all around the world. I wish I fit so easily into an envelope!

Like my favourite things, I have been lost, found, and creatively reworked. I live in the beautiful seaside community of Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia with my husband (Trevor), our son, (James), Charkie the Berndoodle, and a bearded dragon named Draco. We moved to Nova Scotia in 2011 from Whitehorse, Yukon. Ten years before that, I moved from Marlton, New Jersey to Whitehorse to marry my mountain man. Now we're stitching together a happy life by the sea within Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded lands of the Mi'kmaq people.

* Sustainability is very important to me. Everything I make involves careful consideration of its environmental impact. And Hook, Line & Tinker donates 5% of profits to help women and children experiencing homelessness.

WHOLESALE: Interested in wholesale opportunities? Please contact me! Hook, Line & Tinker embroidery kits can already be found coast to coast in North America, and we're always looking for new partners.

    As part of my journey to date, I have been a Jersey Girl, a Yukon Sourdough, and now I'm what some Nova Scotians refer to as a CFA (come-from-away). Home is Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia with my husband, son, a bernedoodle and a bearded dragon.
