Welcome to Yarn Candy by Melissa!

Working with my hands came naturally at a young age. Thinking back I cannot remember a time in my life when I have not been creating. I currently attend The Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver where I am working towards my Bachelor in Fine Arts (majoring in Visual Arts.) There I take an array of courses, including painting, drawing and sculpture. The money made from my stitch markers and other knitting supplies goes towards supporting my education in the arts.

My involvement in the knitting world started when my mother decided to open a yarn shop. Being a creative person at heart I naturally took to knitting and it's endless possibilities of creation. I began making stitch markers for my mom and myself to use in our projects. This then led to creating stitch markers by commission and then to selling them full time in the shop.

Being a knitter myself I know what one looks for in a stitch marker. My stitch markers are made with an abundance of care and creativity in order to ensure both quality and sweetness. Charms and glass beads are my two favorite things to make stitch markers out of. I am also open to requests and ideas from others.

Thank you so much for your interest.
