Thanks for visiting my shop. I’m thrilled to have opened a shop this year and hope you enjoy looking at my homemade crochet and knit pins and other trinkets. I would like to share a few things about my shop with you.

A nomadic existence…
I grew up in Ontario, Canada and live a peripatetic lifestyle wandering around the world. I like crafting in many forms from beadwork to knitting and crochet to collecting rocks. I also enjoy reading and writing and I’m currently working on revising my Masters thesis entitled “Threads of Visual Culture.” When I’m not watching foreign films such as I am Love I like to hike in the wilderness, go bird watching and travel around.

Crafting as art…
Crafting for me has always been a great form of expression, whether it is through making jewelry for a friend or knitting a scarf to keep someone warm. My mother taught me how to crochet when I was little and then I started experimenting with it more. I like including vintage beads and other neat tokens in my crochet and knit works. I’m always on the lookout for cool pins and this is partly why I enjoy making them. Currently on my tweed jacket I’m wearing a floral enamel pin that I found in a thrift market in southern England as well as a hand-crafted monster girl face.

The Subversive Stitch or something like it
Although the title “Crafted to Death” seems exhaustive I think it expresses the profound interest I have in how crafting and life are intertwined.
