About

Once Upon A Time...

There was once a young girl (*cough cough*.... youthful woman) who had just moved back to Ireland after working in Montreal for a few years....

I found myself back on the jobs market in a small town that had been badly hit by the economic crash a number of years ago. I had been surrounded by a thriving artisan, bespoke, handmade and homemade small business scene in Montreal. I'd seen people making a living from the items they produced in their own home - I found it all really inspiring. Missing my old life, unemployed and waiting for things to pick up in my little Irish town, I decided to try my hand at weaving.

I took an old ikea picture, pulled the paper "canvas" from the frame and started hammering nails into it. Then I took a trip to the nearest fabric store and bought some balls of yarn and a couple of needles. My first attempt was horrible - bright purple, dark grey, lots of mistakes and hung from a piece of driftwood that looked like some bull horns I'd found at the beach a few days earlier. I sent pictures of it to a couple of friends and they thought I was practicing some sort of witchcraft.

I was determined not to give up, so I spent every spare minute weaving, practicing, teaching myself. I was turning out one wall hanging per day. Each day getting better and better, eventually deciding to open up shop and trying to sell my pretty little weaves to the world. I'm excited to see where the story will take me next....

Frequently asked questions
What is your postage policy?

I send all items by registered mail. It ensures proof of postage and allows you to track your package all the way to your delivery address. Should you wish to receive your order by standard mail, please get in touch to discuss.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All Weaverella items come wrapped in tissue before bubble wrapping and packing for postage. Should you want anything specific (e.g. a written gift card, a certain coloured paper, etc), please get in touch and I'll see what I can do.

Sizing details

The sizes of each piece is noted in the listing. Please read carefully and if you have any further questions, get in touch. Sometimes it's helpful to cut some paper in the size of the wall hanging and pin it to your wall if you're worried that it might be too big/too small for your space.
