Announcement   Hi, thanks for looking around! If you like what you see, "like" me in Facebook (link is just above and to the right) to keep updated on listings, interesting articles, occasional free patterns and other behind the scenes crafty tips.

I've been knitting for many years and love making sweaters, hats and just about anything else. I'm the stay at home mom of two little girls and, as they've been getting older, I've recently started playing more with toy making. After being a Waldorf teacher for eight years, I'm dedicated to simple creations that are engaging for open ended play.

I enjoy custom orders. Please look through my sales history for previous projects or contact me if you are interested in something special and OOAK. My blog - www.moderncrafter.com - also contains pictures of many projects. Use the "knitting" or "sewing" labels in the list on the right hand side. Feel free to look around there too; besides crafting of all kinds, I also cook and garden a lot and do a little bit of everything else.

I also want to embrace environmentally friendly options for materials while still maintaining high quality. Each sales listing explains where supplies were sourced.
-All of the wool stuffing I currently use is ecowool although I'm also exploring the option of getting wool straight from a local farmer to decrease the miles my supplies travel.
-The polyester fiberfill is new and salvaged from the cut scraps at a sleeping bag factory, preventing it from going to a landfill.
-Fabric for projects is sometimes remnants from larger projects and sometimes upcycled from old wool or cashmere sweaters.
-Most of the yarn I use is from Brown Sheep, a Nebraska based manufacturer dedicated to producing an entirely American product, starting with raw wool, and making yarn in an environmentally friendly way. For more on their factory operations, this article is extremely informative - http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1755&context=tsaconf. (I am not affiliated with them, just a customer, but I really love them and their products.)

My baby is fascinated by this little square of fabric, so cute! As soon as I crinkle it, he reaches for it.

Shipping
Most merchandise is shipped via USPS Priority Flat Rate shipping. This 1-3 day service includes tracking and merchandise insurance up to $50.

Within the metro Denver area, I use First Class Mail Parcel Post since items will generally arrive next day anyway. Small items ($5 or less) are also shipped this way and the low shipping cost reflects this.
