On Etsy since 2011

Creativity is a gift given by a creative God

The economy is the reason I taught myself to knit and crochet" "How can I save money on Christmas gifts this year?" I wondered... "Make my own!" was the inspired answer. And so I began; knitting at first, and then I picked up a crochet hook. As I became obsessed with fibre I started to spin on a drop spindle and even delved a little into embroidery. For Christmas I received a sewing machine and I haven't looked back since.

Something that started as a hobby, I quickly turned into an Etsy business when I realised there was no way I would be able to keep everything I made.
I recently opened a second Etsy shop to sell supplies (another thing I realised I wouldn't be able to keep all of...) - CarouselUK.

I work with wool, acrylic, mohair, cotton, linen, felt, fabric, buttons, ribbons and all sorts of materials to create original handmade, hand crafted pieces. Each one is handmade by myself with love, care and attention.
