About

I'm a fiberartist who really enjoys creating accessories for other fiber lovers. My search for lovely pins and markers lead me into making my own and I'm hoping you enjoy them as much as I do. There's a lot of satisfaction that goes into making items that others appreciate and admire. One of my dreams is to have a fiber related shop of my own someday and I hope this is just the start of that. Please feel free to contact me with any special requests or questions. I appreciate the time you take looking through my items and your opinions and feedback are important to me! The other half of the team, my husband, is the talented woodworker who crafts the Yarn Swifts, Nostepinnes and Whorls you see. He does share the Whorl making with our youngest son, who seems to have inherited his father's talent at woodworking.

A little more info on my pins. I make my pins with a variety of metals - copper, sterling silver and Nugold (which is a type of bronze). All three metals will tarnish a bit, as I do not lacquer them. They do clean up beautifully with a jewelry cloth that you can get in any general department store for a few dollars. Also, my pricing is generally based on the size of the pin and then the type of metal I'm using. Sterling is naturally going to be more expensive than copper, but I try to keep my pricing fair and affordable. And a small pin will naturally cost less. Don't let my descriptions limit the way you wear your pin - they are great as an accessory for so many things - from shawls to scarves, to sweaters, hats, and felted bags. And as always, if you have any questions, just contact me and I will be happy to help you.

As of April 21, 2013, you can find me, Chris, also at Thislittlebirdtoldme, my new shop devoted to my new obsession of Blythe Dolls and all their do-dads!
