Announcement Discouraged by the changes in etsy over the past few years, I've stopped dumping my time, money, and effort into listing things here. I actually HAND MAKE my things MYSELF, and I feel this is no longer a good venue for small, genuine makers. You can stop by my facebook page to see what I'm up to... http://www.facebook.com/stitchedbymelody

This is so much prettier than shown...will weave nicely. Thanks!!
I started this shop because I make too many things!
It isn't and probably never will be a super-prolific, big-sales shop, mostly because I don't like to make the same things over and over again-- I feel more creative and (I think) come up with better stuff when I have the freedom to explore and experiment rather than grinding away at reproducing *only* the same things over and over. (but that's just me)
That said, I definitely don't mind filling custom orders from my own patterns-- don't hesitate to ask for a custom finished item in any of the patterns I have for sale in my shop plus my tied Peasant Cap (a free pattern, available on ravelry, which is why the pattern is not for sale here).
My fiber and batt offerings come from what I can get my hands on at the time and what calls to me. There are often ingredients I'm not sure I'll be able to get again, and I don't (at this time) keep dye logs to be able to reproduce colorways. I'm starting to do more small (but non-repeatable) runs of things so that more than a few ounces of a particular color/blend are available, but I also still do plenty of OOAK creations!
I prefer local or at least domestic fibers when possible. I choose my raw materials from reputable sellers and/or farmers. Local sources are listed when they are available.
Look for me in-person:
- NY Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, along with the Ulster County Handspinners in barn 39-- always the 3rd weekend in October
- The Catskill Fiber Celebration in West Hurley at the Zena Firehouse-- always the 1st weekend in December http://www.facebook.com/CatskillFiberCelebration
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
I love all things fiber! Knitting, crocheting, weaving, designing, spinning, fiber prep... all of it! This shop and vending at fiber fests provides enough so that my fiber habit doesn't impact my family's budget and sometimes even pays some bills.
