Handmade by Hema

Hello, I’m Hema, and thank you for visiting my shop - Handmade by Hema.

When I was a little girl back in Zambia, (Africa), I was so fascinated by watching my mum knit. I could hear the needles clicking away, her hands moving so quickly, taking the yarn over the needles, and then something beautiful would magically appear.
Once we moved to Leicester, UK, my mum decided I was ready and that it was time that I learnt knit. I was so excited, that I would be able to hold needles and yarn and that I would be creating something magical, just for me.
Well, that magic didn’t happen over night. I just struggled holding the needles, the stitches were so tight on my needles, I lost stitches or dropped them, and nothing magical appeared from my needles!

So glad I persevered and happy the magic wasn’t lost and that my passion for knitting has continued over the many years.

With being quite creative, I really wanted to pursue my career in Fashion,
I went on to university to study Knitwear Design at University, and then on to many wonderful years working in the fashion industry.

Only a few years ago I taught myself to crochet, unsuccessfully, but then I had that aha moment, and that was it, just with my knitting I was hooked!
Working with a pair of needles and a crochet hook, my family and friends loved what I was creating and that it was all hand-made, and so Handmade by Hema was born.

I hope that my products make you fall in love with crochet and knitting as much as I do.
