Announcement    CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION: Hey all, I wanted to let you know what I am doing here at Velvet Hippo to make sure that I can continue to craft markers for my customers safely. First, no new items have entered the studio since March 5. Second, I make sure to wipe down all frequently-touched surfaces and frequently-used tools, including my hands, several times a day, and before working. Next, I am washing my hands before packing your items, then again before putting them in the envelopes for mailing. I am doing everything I can to make sure you can continue to order from Velvet Hippo with confidence. Stay well, and stay safe.

HERE'S WHAT IS COMING UP FROM VELVET HIPPO:
The SPRING 2020 COLLECTION
Row Counter/Progess Keeper/Marker sets! Mini sets, row counters and two-row counters! New additions to the Dose collection, plus I am opening the Vault again in the April!
*****
Welcome to Velvet Hippo, home of the original Dose stitch markers! Thank you for visiting, I hope you find something wonderful that strikes your fancy. Every item in my shop is conceived, designed and handmade by me. Fresh new things are added all the time, so please do check back often. Custom orders available again!

About VelvetHippo

Sales 3,879
On Etsy since 2008

I am a jewelry maker and an avid knitter, which together equal a yen to make beautiful, unique, functional stitch markers. I use the same techniques, tools and high quality materials to make my stitch markers as I do to make my jewelry. All of the markers and counters I offer for sale have been carefully designed and handcrafted by me, then perfected and field-tested on my own projects, and on those of my friends and the members of my knitting group. Necessity is truly the mother of invention here.

Inspired by books, pop culture, music, theatre, words, art, and television as well as the natural world, I love what I do. I work in my studio every day with my speakers cranking out good music, podcasts or audiobooks, whose themes and ideas work their way into my pieces.

I'm a graduate of l'Academie des Arts de Montreal, a past member of the San Diego Polymer Clay Guild and a past member of the sadly now-defunct Many Hands Cooperative Craft Gallery, San Diego. Currently, I call Florida home.
