Welcome to My Etsy Shop.
I create Handmade Crochet and Knit items. I use good quality deer hide in making my Mitts & Moccasins. Have a look and feel free to ask questions.

Yarn and Leather are my passion. I've been working with yarn from an early childhood, earliest I remember was my grandfather put 4 finishing nails in a wooden thread spool.
Grandma always said, "Handmade is the best way."

My Ghost Bead - necklaces and bracelets are designed to keep away bad dreams and nightmares, they are perfect for babies, children and adults, either worn or hung over babies crib or in your work area.

My Gifts Baskets - of Gourmet Tea and Coffee use high quality teas and fair trade organic beans roasted in our own roaster business here in the Island at http://coffeeroasting.ca
I include items: vintage tea cups, tea pots, fairy jewellery for kids gift bags, sea glass & paper crafts for adult gift bags, crochet baby booties in new mom's gift bags and chocolate, coasters and magnets to say a few items in gift bags.
These are perfect for all-occasion gift giving or just to say "thank you".

Custom orders are welcomed and I'm building on a section for wedding sets, just message me your requests.

I have a gift shop here on the Island and everything in my shop is made by me in my smoke and pet free studio. Disclaimer; I smudge with sage and sweet grass.

Thank you for coming by.

About

The best ways in life are taught by our elders. I learned to bead, knit, crochet & hand sew moccasins from my elders.

I picked the shop name MadeByGrandmasHands because I love handmade and as a child received some of my favourite gifts from Grandma.

I have always had a passion for handmade items. I learned a lot from watching, always gathering the best that people had to share through the many places we travelled. Elders were a big influence in my life teaching me skills I would otherwise never have known. Those elders have long moved on and I revisit each one in memory when I build the handcraft I was taught by them. Sometimes a mystical imaginary dusting of peace flows when I work and then other times I burn sage and smudge to keep evil away and a positive solemn energy flowing. Now that I'm an elder I try and show others how to handcraft. I teach my grand-children the old ways in hopes that they will appreciate something MadeByGrandmasHands.

I'm a visual learner and love different textures and colours and often like to combine them in a creative way.

I'm always trying something different so you will likely see something new added to my shop.
