Note from shop owner Hello everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that the shop will be on vacation mode for the next few weeks as I will be away at several shows and will not be able to process orders until they are over. The good news is that I anticipate a shop update after the shows are over. The shop will reopen on October 17th.

About

I fell into the fibre arts headlong and without warning.

I began my shop in May of 2011. I have crocheted for almost 20 years, but it all started in 2009 when I decided to teach myself to knit. In doing this I ended up learning more about wool and ended up escaping the world of acrylic yarns! I stumbled onto Ravelry in 2010 and through this social media site discovered a community of like minded individuals. I met a great group of knitters who soon became close friends and avid supporters of my journey into the fibre arts. I began dyeing my own yarn in late 2010, and when I started spinning in early 2011 I also started to dye my own spinning fibres. My friends loved what I was creating and encouraged me to start my own shop on Etsy selling what I was making. Through an intense brainstorming session, we came up with the name of the The Wacky Windmill. The name of the shop has led to many questions over the past few years. Here are answers to some of them. I wanted a name that related to the area I live in which is Southern Alberta. Although I am not Dutch, we do have a strong Dutch community in this area, and are also surrounded by wind turbines ( The Wacky Wind Turbine just did not have the same ring to it). Also, I can be rather wacky in the ways I approach things and tend to spin in crazy confused circles at trying to keep up with all I do in life. And so...you have the wacky and you have the windmill (as opposed to turbine). The fibre arts have been a great adventure, and I hope to keep exploring this strange and wonderful world at the bottom of the rabbit hole I have fallen into. I love creating and I love my little shop, and I hope you love being a part of this adventure with me!

Take Care & Happy Crafting
