About

I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares. ~ Saul Bass

I've been called crafty, creative, a DIY'er, but I like to call myself a maker. I knit and sew because 'making' feels like part of my soul. I've always loved making things.

My grandmother tried desperately to teach me how to knit when I was a child. As a lefty, my hands didn't want to follow the movements of my right-handed grandmother. I always ended up with an extra stitch or two on the end of my rows. So I took up crocheting instead. Years later I picked up the knitting needles, figured out where I went wrong all those years ago, and taught myself how to knit again.

An item that has been made by hand; that a person's time and skill went into making is far more valuable in my opinion than something made on a machine in a factory. A handmade item has a tiny precious glint of the maker's soul in it.

And I love it even more when someone finds joy or cozy warmth wearing or using one of my creations. That's why I have this shop, and I'm happy that you've found your way here!

Once Upon an Extra Stitch focuses on comfortable, affordable and luxurious knit and hand sewn accessories and wearables. From luxuriously warm beanies and coffee cozies to chunky cowls and scarves, my hope is that you will find something that you feel great wearing or giving. I strive to make the most adorable, gorgeous, yet simplistic items, using all different types and thicknesses of top quality yarn and fabric that I can find. I also love sewing with different types, thicknesses and textures of designer, vintage and hard to find fabrics.

If you have any special or custom requests please send me a message and together we can create a piece that you will love!

Thanks for stopping by!
