Handmade with 100% rechanneled aggression.

Once upon a time, a woman named Brenda finally finished graduate school and decided that it was time she got an actual creative hobby. Brenda rediscovered knitting, a skill she had learned from her mother (her 4-H knitting project leader and constant knitter and crocheter) many, many, many years before.

After struggling through knitting (and reknitting, and redesigning, and finally conquering) a hat as a tribute to her favorite short lived Sci Fi series, Brenda realized that her "hobby" had reached the level of "addiction." Brenda soon realized that she was really awful at just having a hobby. Soon her "hobby" had turned into a "jobby," and, thus, Mellow Fury was born.

Mellow Fury is a small business located in the Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis. It was founded in 2011 by Brenda Peterson (with the help of her husband. and partner in art/crime, Michael Treat of Smirking Tiger. Collectively, I sometimes call us "Smirking Fury." (But alas, I digress).

Mellow Fury specializes in hand knit hats, tie dye clothing and artist promotions.

Employees at Mellow Fury include one voracious knitter/tie dyer/social media addict (Brenda), one silly monster hat model/roadie/aspiring artist (Wynn), one operations expert/shipping coordinator/man hat model/multimedia artist (Mike) and two surly cats (Zippy and Meathook).

Everything for sale in the Mellow Fury shop are, indeed, All Handmade by Me.

Mellow Fury sells items online at our Etsy store, at area art and craft shows, and at Twin Cities area artist consignment shops including The Art Shoppe at Midtown Global Market, Articulture and Paper Hat.

All of Mellow Fury's items are "Handmade with 100% rechanneled aggression."
