Sydney Cole's Profile

About

my passion is to knit children's clothing and toys that will be well-loved and well-worn, and that are so finely made that they will be passed down from generation to generation, along with stories from when they were worn.

heirloom clothing and toys are cherished
-----------------------------------------------------------------
in my family, there are a handful of handmade sweaters, blankets and toys that have been handed down from my grandparents' generation to my parents to my sister and me - and now they are being loved by our kids. and now, every time my daughter joy wears the blue hand knit sweater that my beloved great aunt max knitted, i tell her a story about max, or about one of the times that i wore that sweater. even though i miss max terribly,…

i love creating perfectly high quality items
-----------------------------------------------------------------
i adore making things with my hands - and i am committed to using the highest quality materials available. when i create each handmade item, every detail is attended to with love and dedication : i save my extra buttons and yarn for you in case you wish to make future repairs to the clothing item, i secure knitted buttonholes with invisible hand-sewn thread so that they will never gape even after years of use, and i am infamous for knitting and re-knitting and re-knitting a small detail until it is *perfectly* the way i intended it to be in my mind. i am completely obsessed - and i like it that way! :-)

our home is literally overflowing with gorgeous yarn, natural fabrics, plush knit toys, knit hats, and handmade children's clothing that i've made over time. our kids, who range in ages all the way from 4 to 25, have more handmade items than they know what to do with! so in 2011, my husband and i decided that it would make sense for me to put up my little sign and start this little shop, sydneypaige (which is my my first and middle names together) so that i could begin to sell my beloved handmade items to other people who would also appreciate them.

as you can see, the items you'll find in my shop have been made with the very finest luxury materials -- all hand-picked by me with great care. i can't ever seen to have enough yarn...

everything you will find in my shop has been made with my own two hands, with great love and care. in a non-smoking home. should you have any questions, please convo me!
