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.
