Claire's Profile

About

Hello fellow Etsy-ers -

My name is Claire and I'm a creative soul living not too far from Canberra Australia. Canberra is Australia's capital city and sits approximately mid-way between Sydney and Melbourne.

In my 'real' life, I work for a very large Government Department. The role is very interesting.

In my 'at home fantasy' life, I am a creative crafter who is obsessed with masterminding magical little monster creatures (a.k.a * PODKINS *) into reality and harnessing the amazing stress relieving power of crochet (a.k.a all of the Afghans that I pump out each week)! I have also just taught myself to knit. A few years ago, my parents bought me an Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel for Christmas and since then I can't get enough of spinning, dyeing my own fibre, and everything to do with…

Hello fellow Etsy-ers -

My name is Claire and I'm a creative soul living not too far from Canberra Australia. Canberra is Australia's capital city and sits approximately mid-way between Sydney and Melbourne.

In my 'real' life, I work for a very large Government Department. The role is very interesting.

In my 'at home fantasy' life, I am a creative crafter who is obsessed with masterminding magical little monster creatures (a.k.a * PODKINS *) into reality and harnessing the amazing stress relieving power of crochet (a.k.a all of the Afghans that I pump out each week)! I have also just taught myself to knit. A few years ago, my parents bought me an Ashford Traditional Spinning Wheel for Christmas and since then I can't get enough of spinning, dyeing my own fibre, and everything to do with making Indie batches of OOAK skeins of deliciousness.

I'm married to my high school sweet heart. We've been together for over 20 years, and married for 6. He's a graphic artist, and is totally amazing (trust me, I'm not biased)! I'm trying to get him to start up his own Etsy store... We live in a lovely home with one very spoilt fur-baby (cat) Miss Ming.

(Please note: Although I have 1 cat in the house, she is NEVER permitted anywhere near your items. And a further note: Your items come from a smoke-free home!)

Although ALL of my items are one-of-a-kind, I am more than willing to create something special and UNIQUE for you! My * PODKINS * turn around is 5 days, and my Afghan turn around 1.5 weeks at the max. I can also spin you up something in a jiffy. Just message me to chat about what you're looking for. Simply let me know colour choice combinations, wool options, or send me a pic of colours that inspire you, so that I can mimic that inspiration directly into the product I will be creating for you... Let's chat and make this happen!

Thank you for checking out my Profile.

Take care,

Claire x
