A lifelong creative passion
Since I was very young, I have loved creating products from scratch. At the age of five I would make bows out of sticks and "soups" in a bucket from wild parsley and grass. All through my life, I've never been satisfied until I've understood an entire process.
I first learned to knit when I was six years old, and I learned crochet at age twelve and then spinning at thirteen. I honestly can't remember when I learned to sew - it was that long ago!
Today, I've taken my love of creating to a whole new level. In my professional life I'm a computer engineer, and I've brought some of my engineering training to my shop. You'll find that many of my products are designed with a particular focus on their end use, and that many blend beauty and function to make a product greater than the sum of its parts. I always welcome feedback because I want to know how my products perform in the field!
My shop is driven by creative impulses. From my handspun yarn to handmade products of all kinds, almost all of them have started as a desire to make something beautiful, discover a new technique, or explore making something I would like to use myself. My most popular item, the Essential Archery Bracer, was born from a desire for a homemade bracer that fit my style and archery needs. It has been honed by my own experience in archery and a desire to make something that fits how I as an archer would like a bracer to perform.
Around the web
This shop is the product of my hobby and my passion. I'm an engineer by training and a crafter at heart and I simply love to make things. Yarn, fabric, or leather? They're all good for me and I love bringing out the unique characteristics of each!
