Chriss' Profile

About

I have been crocheting for over 19 years, and starting knitting these last few years. Free Form Crochet is my favorite way to create items, this is most prevalent in my "Gypsy line".

My Etsy Shop originally started as a crochet pattern shop. But I felt I was missing a connection with my customers and soon realized how much I wanted to share my creations with them. I have been selling on Etsy for about 6 years now, and also have enjoyed selling with Hemp and Company stores in Victoria British Columbia, Prudence Organics in Duncan British Columbia, Tara Davis Studios in Manitoba and Cowichan Green Community Store also located in Duncan, British Columbia.

I am a mother of three awesome kids. We live in a rural area surrounded by nature. Each year we plant and grow as much food as our gardens will produce. I am privileged to work…

I am a mother of three awesome kids. We live in a rural area surrounded by nature. Each year we plant and grow as much food as our gardens will produce. I am privileged to work outside my home caring for others.
I greatly enjoy Yoga, Practicing Reiki, Chakra Work, Belly Dancing, meditation, hiking, and cycling. I am passionate about the environment, local organic food sources, grain free living, volunteering at my children's Schools and having an active role in our community.

Guilty Pleasures: Buying handmade jewelry! ( this one really gets me in trouble here on Etsy!)

"Earth and People friendly fiber art". I love working with natural fibers particularly ones that are eco-friendly and assist in enabling those who are disadvantaged to enrich their lives. I am highly committed to offering quality crocheted and knit items, that are environmentally friendly, support the global economy, and enrich the life of the all those it touches.
Hemp is my favorite Fiber/yarn to work with as it is so incredibly versatile, strong sustainable, and long lasting.
Nature inspires me greatly. Living on the West Coast, on Vancouver Island is such an amazingly raw and untouched environment and brimming with inspiration.

Sometimes materials must be taken apart before they can be put back together into a beautiful piece of wearable art.
