Hello to friends I know and friends I have yet to meet.

I have an Etsy shop: Simply Heaven Knits.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/SimplyHeavenKnits?ref=hdr_shop_menu -- come visit!

When you buy from Simple Heaven Knits, you get the best. I offer the highest quality in fiber arts, and I stand behind my sales 100%. Satisfaction guaranteed.

So, if you're looking for an artisan who loves to focus on quality and the highest standards, and a business owner who is passionate about offering the finest customer service--then you've come to the right place. Everything I offer comes with the promise of making you, a friend, or a loved-one happy.

The fiber arts offered here are personally designed or hand crafted by me, Lee Bernstein, of Schererville, Indiana.

If you're looking for something faddish or for a bargain, you won't find it here. I focus on producing high-end, classic designs made to stay in style so you may enjoy them for as long as you wish . . . and, if you like, pass them down to someone you love.

Occasionally, I will offer a novelty item in acrylic yarn to keep the price down for you. However, everything I sell can be knit in the finest, premium yarn, if you wish. Let me know, and I'll get it done.

Perfecting an item for market takes more time and patience than you might imagine. Before I offer fiber arts for sale, I test them--often many times--and when needed, I redesign . . . and redesign . . . and redesign a pattern to make it better. So, while you might see one simple (not) finished piece for sale, what you don't see are the many test pieces and design changes I made prior to perfecting your order.

About me:

I love to work with fiber (obviously!), I love family, (pets included as family), friends, find dining, great books/music/movies, travel . . . and, oh my gosh, how I love a good laugh!

I am also a writer and a tech editor. Some of my writings include having written for eBay, Knit Simple Magazine, New England Antiques Journal, Wiley, Hungry Minds Press, Weight Watchers North America/Canada, and more.

I also wrote "I Love You," also know as "The Barney Song." I not wealthy from it (long story), but I am rich in how proud I am at having written something that sends a positive message to millions of children around the world.

While I am new to Etsy, I have long-standing, A+, high-seller ratings on eBay and Amazon. Feel free to send me a message if you would like to view my feedback on either site.

My history: I began working with fiber arts in childhood, when I taught myself at age 8, but I gave it up because I became frustrated whenever I needed help. Back then, I didn't know about quality yarns or yarn shops, and I didn't know any other fiber artists. Department store books and patterns only took me as far as my skills would allow. And. back then, many patterns were filled with errors, although I didn't know it at the time.

Fast forward to my adult life: I had a lot of health challenges--some severe. I needed something, ANYTHING, to keep my mind off of feeling sorry for myself while I healed.

I'm happy to say, I'm doing much better now! Working as an artisan helped and did much to help me heal. An "angel on my shoulder" reminded me of my love of yarn and guided me to yarn shops and the internet to help me perfect my skills. That "angel" helped turn a curse into a blessing, for which I am eternally grateful.

And now, with my renewed passion for fiber arts, Simply Heaven Knits is born! Please also come visit Simply Heaven Knits on Facebook. The link is on the upper, right-hand side of this page, under "Related Links."

If you would like a coupon code for a first-purchase discount, well . . . goodness knows you deserve it after reading all this! Send me a private message on Etsy, and I'll send one. :)

Thank you your interest, and thank you for your order!

Love,
Lee
