Charming, disruptive, hand-stitched embroidery
It all started with a sock monkey because I didn't want to throw out my favourite pair of socks. And then I made sock monkeys for everyone I knew. So I started to sell them because there's only so many sock monkeys one person needs.
But a funny thing happened while I was making those sock monkeys: I taught myself to embroider in order to give them faces and baby friendly eyes and I fell in love with embroidery. So I started playing around with embroidered pieces and the Canadian Heritage Minutes series was born. It snowballed from there.
While embroidery is my passion, my day job is in marketing where I do web content and I'm the mom of a busy toddler. I spend my evenings with my stitching after I put that toddler to bed and turn on Netflix or a podcast. I often find my embroidery inspiration in what I'm watching or listening to.
An East coast native, I got my start at Halifax Crafters before moving to Kitchener. When I'm not stitching, you can find me at my day job as a web content strategist, reading YA novels, or binge watching my latest Netflix obsession.
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
I'd also love to hear all about why you like what you bought. Nice reviews make me happy.
If you are paying by PayPal, I ship to your PayPal address. Double check that it's correct when processing payment so I send it to the right address (I've missed this step before). If you'd like your item sent to another address (yay gifts!) please let me know when processing payment in the 'notes to seller' so I can make sure it goes where it needs to be.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to do customized pieces at this time.
I'm not looking to do retail or wholesale at this time. I'd love to do it in the future, but right now my focus is on the shop and craft shows.
