    I messaged Hilary direct to arrange a custom piece - a felt cat to look just like our “Rooster”. With just a few photos, and chatter back and forth, Hilary delivered on the most perfect miniature of our boy! Great to build up a relationship with such ease in communication, I absolutely felt that Hilary knew exactly what we were looking for. Would 100% recommend 💕

    Loved my little owls and the lavender scent is perfect. Hilary was wonderful to interact with :)

    These are the cutest!! Hillary had a different colour scheme available that I loved and they fit perfectly. She humoured me by adding the amazing snowflake button which just finishes the mittens off brilliantly. These are thick and warm and well made. I love them!!

Controlled shrinkage!! Each piece is knit big and then shrunk to create something new!

Once I discovered the magic of felting, I never looked at knitting the same again. Now I always wonder what will happen when I knit something extra big and then put it in the washing machine in hot water...it shrinks!!!
I'm always trying new things and creating new patterns. Some work.... Some don't but that's half the fun!
I try to incorporate pieces from my fellow makers when I can. Locally dyed wools and locally made buttons are realy fun.
I love getting pictures of my things out "in the wild". Cats playing with their toys or hats going on hikes - that's the best part of what I do!!

    I've been living in Newfoundland for quite a while now but I'm originally from away!! I learned craft in a house where there was always something being created! Knitting was one of my favourites but when I discovered felting it was a game changer!
