Announcement   I'm addicted to luxurious fibers, textures and colors and incorporate as much as I can to create my designs.

The West Coast is a feast of inspiration and Vancouver is the perfect place to pull this all together. I teach spinning, design, collaborate with other artists and stretch the boundaries of design in my work.

The shop will primarily be about the pretty wool, but I make lovely antler buttons and other fun things that will show up once in a while.

I saw this yarn "Gentle Tides" and fell in love with it . I was lucky enough to be able to stop by the studio to pick it up. Even more beautiful than the picture - it feels so wonderful. Can't wait to do some Saori weaving with it. Thanks so much Carmen! I was so tempted by the other yarns I saw too.... nGreat service!

This yarn is even more gorgeous in person! I can't wait to work with it. I do a type of weaving called Saori, sometimes referred to as freestyle weaving, and I can just envision a springtime weaving with the flowers poking through here and there. Thanks!

About

Sometimes you just have to make things.

I learned how to knit as a teenager. I was working in a hunting and fishing lodge in Northern Ontario during the summer. The First Nations women in the area knit the most Incredible sweaters from hand spun wool and I fell in love. Not be able to afford a sweater I made a pest of myself until they taught me how to knit. I used my summer savings and bought enough wool to knit a sweater. I reknit the same sweater over and over again until it was perfect.

I started spinning eight years ago. Bulky wool just like those incredible women I met so many years earlier.

The only change. I let go of perfect.

It's all about the fibre and I want you to love the design as much as I enjoyed creating it. The West Coast of British Columbia provides the ideal inspiration.
