Joyce Strangeway's Profile

About

Welcome to Joyce’s Knit Wear. I’m so glad you’ve stumbled upon my shop and hope you find a unique creation you love. I opened my shop in March 2010, shortly after my retirement. I’m the kind of person who loves to be creative and stay busy. I’m based in Kansas City, Missouri, working from my chaotic home studio.

Fabric and yarn are my two biggest weaknesses. Setting foot in fabric and yarn stores sends my mind into overdrive with ideas and plans. I tend to like a lot of different styles. I was a young woman in the 60s and 70s, so colorful clothes and mini skirts were my thing.

Welcome to Joyce’s Knit Wear. I’m so glad you’ve stumbled upon my shop and hope you find a unique creation you love. I opened my shop in March 2010, shortly after my retirement. I’m the kind of person who loves to be creative and stay busy. I’m based in Kansas City, Missouri, working from my chaotic home studio.

Fabric and yarn are my two biggest weaknesses. Setting foot in fabric and yarn stores sends my mind into overdrive with ideas and plans. I tend to like a lot of different styles. I was a young woman in the 60s and 70s, so colorful clothes and mini skirts were my thing. In fact, my first venture into creating my own clothing was sewing fabric on to the hems of my jeans to make them flared.

When it comes to my brand and process, there are two things that make me stand out. First, my brand - I have never seen anyone make alien hats the same as mine. Each hat is unique and I’ve been able to sell them worldwide, thanks to Etsy, and that’s something I’m really proud of. I hope my upcycled clothing will receive the same warm response. When it comes to my process, I use several different sewing and embroidery machines: I have two different knitting machines, a Serger, an embroidery machine and a sewing machine. I just wish I had more time and energy to use each of them to their full potential. My embroidery machine and knitting machines get the most use since they work well together and I am able to use them simultaneously.

My family is my biggest support team and help me find inspiration and focus. They’re also great when I have computer problems! .

I want all of my customers to be satisfied with their purchases and will do whatever is needed to satisfy them. If you have questions or would like to chat about custom products, don’t hesitate to message me. I love helping my customers create the item of their dreams.

Thanks for stopping by Joyce’s Knitwear. Enjoy your visit!
