I contacted Marie, desperately looking for some kind of a cover for a fish bowl. It was an odd request and I also wanted to make sure it had a hole for feeding and a hole for the heater plug. Marie was so patient with me and all my concerns/questions. She said she would try to create one for me. What I received was the best cover I could ever have imagined! The cover fits perfectly and I love the color! It's so beautifully made. Marie is extremely creative and does really beautiful work. Thank you Marie!!!!

About

Handcrafts and more, from dolls to shawls we do it all.

Welcome to Mainely Handcrafts ™.
. . . http://www.MainelyHandcrafts.com
Thank you for stopping by.
Mainely Handcrafts ™ is a wife and husband team!

Hi! My name is Marie. At 8 years old a crochet hook was placed in hand and I've been crochetting since! The love for crafting expanded to other mediums as well such as floral design, bow making etc, and thise will also appear here at Mainely Handcrafts in time.
I just love, Love, LOVE to crochet and do handcrafts.
Mainely Handcrafts ™ is the result of bringing that passion into reality. I am the one who thinks of what to make and who does the researching, buying materials, color-coordinating, handcrafting, pricing, listing, and describing of every Item. Posting in forums, replying to emails and messages, and interacting/corresponding with customers... these are all done personally and exclusively by me! As well, I love working with vintage yarns, which sadly makes some of my items created OOAK (one of a kind) or limited in the quantity created.
The expectation that I put on myself for doing excellent quality work is huge. If I ever discover a dropped stitch, I will undo the work all the way back and start again from that corrected point. (Fortunately, that doesn't have to happen too often. My husband tells me that it shows how much natural talent and passion I have for this.)

I call my husband, Hubby. Getting a crochet hook into his hand is "just not gonna happen." But he fully supports me, which is why Hubby is the mastermind behind the web-site and marketing. For example, when you see the series of pics above, I want you to know that Hubby is the one who conceived the vision, came up with the humor, took the photos, edited them, and posted the finished pics. He also designed the entire web-site as well as organized and manages our blog. While he is in the background of this business, I truly appreciate his support and brilliance in helping this business be what it is and can be!

That's how Mainely Handcrafts ™ is a wife and husband team!

With my own creative passion in the artisan/production and customer-interaction foreground, and with his creative passion in the marketing/management and technological background, I think we make a perfect team for business. Complementing each other's special skills, I feel that we are well-suited to bring quality handmade products that YOU want to have for yourself! (We do our best to achieve that for you, if we can!)

We do not use any outside manufacturer to produce any of the finished goods offered at Mainely Handcrafts ™. We are also not re-sellers.

Every Item we make available for you is personally handcrafted here in the State of Maine, in the United States of America. Not only do I make each one myself by hand, but that is why we usually do NOT have more than one or two items available for any one product we sell. When we sell an Item, I will have to quickly make another one before we can re-list it available for sale again. When a one-of-a-kind Item is sold, of course, then I will never be able to re-list it again.

That's why we say: All Items are 100% Handcrafted in Maine. That is, I use raw materials (e.g., yarn, etc.) that I buy from stores in Maine to then physically handcraft the Item in my home here in Maine. To explain what this means for anyone still wondering, Hubby created the above series of pics. You can enjoy seeing the more complete set of those pics in the series at our web-site's ABOUT page at
