About

Ooooh, SPARKLY!

A lifelong knitter with a passion for all things pretty and sparkly, a bead obsession was a cry from my inner magpie.

By 2010, I had been making stitch markers for myself and my friends for several years and, quite frankly, was running out of space to store both beads AND yarn (and spinning fiber, and fabric), and I was running out of people to shower markers on.

During the summer of 2010 I began to noodle around with opening a shop and by the time winter rolled around, I knew I wanted to do it.

In October of 2011 I opened Magpie Markers quietly and with little fanfare. I'm an introvert by nature and am not comfortable with self-promotion or "tooting my own horn". I know, not a very good mix for a small, home-based businesswoman, but I am what I am and I do this strictly for the love of doing it. I hope my passion shows in the items I create.

I continue to feed my inner magpie by keeping the creations I can't part with, and fueling the creative fires by making more for the shop. And a bit more...and a few more things...and just...ooooh! SPARKLY!

Welcome to Magpie Markers! This shop is the love child of my passion for two hobbies: knitting and beadwork.

I've always been drawn to sparkly, shiny, pretty things and I'm a total and complete magpie when it comes to these items. I accumulate and collect them beyond all reasonable need; it's a long-term problem for me.

Since a girl can only use so many bracelets, earrings, and necklaces, I started making sparkly stitch markers for my knitting. Because I can never leave well enough alone, I started playing with different types of loops and rings. This evolved into using atypical materials for typical uses. I now make my markers with five types of loops that will cover everything from the finest lace weight to super-bulky.

My soft-loop, snag free markers are the ultimate knitting accessory. There are no sharp edges to catch on even the finest, most delicate yarns and they will not cause ladders in your knitted fabric. In addition, they are completely customizable for size; they can be made to fit ANY needle.

If you have something special or specific in mind, please contact me by using the "Request custom item" button under the "Shop Info" heading on the left.
