About

Thank you for visiting my little shop!

I have been creating and making my entire life. It's as much a part of me as breathing. I believe handmade items bring about a certain warmth, comfort, and calmness that can't be experienced with mass-produced items. It brings us back to a slower, simpler time and may remind us of artisan loved ones.

I hand make every item in my shop and I guarantee a lot of love is woven into every stitch. I choose to work with natural fibers, such as cotton and wool, because they are sustainable, renewable, biodegradable, and the earthy, breathable feel of natural fibers is unlike any man-made synthetic or petroleum-based acrylic yarn. Creating large handmade products (such as sweaters) stitch-by-stitch with all-natural fibers can be expensive and out of reach for many; therefore, I try to focus on making smaller items in order to make my handmade items accessible for everyone to enjoy.

All of the items listed are already made and ready to ship, so you do not have to wait for me to make them. At this time I do not allow for customization. Visit my shop often as new items are regularly added as I complete them.

I strive to use minimal and eco-friendly packaging to reduce unnecessary waste. The tissue paper and the yellow and white 100% cotton twine I use to tie your item can both be composted or reused. The outer shipping envelope is made with recycled materials and can be recycled according to the instructions card included. The embossed thank you card is just plain paper and does not contain print, foil, or glitter, so it can be composted or recycled.

Continuing an eco-conscious focus, your purchase will also help to preserve the pristine beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Wilderness. 10% of the listing price will be donated to the Campaign to Save the Boundary Waters and Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. Save the Boundary Waters has been instrumental in the effort to ensure permanent protection for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Wilderness, America's most visited Wilderness and Minnesota's crown jewel, from toxic sulfide-ore copper mining. Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness' mission is to protect, preserve and restore the wilderness character of the area's wilderness and ecosystem. I have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed this place's awe-inspiring serenity multiple times in my life, including when my husband and I exchanged vows in the middle of its secluded beauty. It holds a special place in my heart. The BWCAW needs permanent protection. You can read more about this at: www.savetheboundarywaters.org or https://friends-bwca.org.

The Hooked Artisan is a proud supporter of the Boundary Waters Business Coalition. For more information, please visit www.bwcabusiness.org.

I hope you enjoy your handmade items. Thank you for buying handmade and choosing to shop with me!
