    I've bought 5 of these and I absolutely LOVE them! They are perfect for my smaller knitting projects. The quality is outstanding! I highly highly recommend you treat yourself and buy a couple! It holds 100grams of yarn, a notions pouch, and circular needles, plus my project, usually stuffed and unstuffed doll parts. So it holds a lot, but it's still a convenient box shape.

    I absolutely LOVE my large Poppins bag and skein of matching Knitterly Things self-striping yarn! The bag is so well made and spacious. The materials are excellent quality. This is my third MayBea bag and I will definitely be getting more. Highly recommended!

    I like these key fobs so much I bought one for everyone in my family! The length is just the right size to keep it on my wrist and still unlock the front door.

    Great work!

    The bag is perfect. The right size, beautiful fabric, and very well made. Exactly what I was looking for.

    There was an issue with the notification of the order, but it was resolved quickly.

Always learning, I began my crafting adventures at age three.

By day: Special Education Teacher. . .By night: Crafter.

I come by my sewing and knitting naturally. My grandmothers were knitters and seamstresses, and my mother a home economics teacher. My first sewing project was with my friend Jeff at age three--we made headbands. What can I say? It was the 70s.

Since then, I've spent years honing my craft. I made many outfits for my six foot tall frame in high school, including my ankle length woolen coat and my prom dress. I moved from there to quilting in college, and found a job making custom clothing and draperies in my twenties to help pay for college. The bags I create today are intended to put high quality fabrics and careful stitching together into a functional piece of art that will add a bit of fun to your every day.

Throughout my childhood I was exposed to just about every textile craft you can imagine--and I loved them all. However knitting took a bit longer to catch. My grandmother taught me as a girl, but I couldn't figure out the darn tension--and the squeak of the acrylic yarn against my aluminum needles wasn't as relaxing as I find the glide of wool over my addi turbos to be today. I use my knowledge of clothing construction design, and love for simple, functional items to guide my pattern writing.

I am active in my local knitting guild, and marry my degree in education to my love of knitting and teach weekly classes in my home, and am available to travel to teach near you.

Thanks for shopping, I hope you find something you love as much as I loved making it.
