Located in the gateway to the Canadian Rockies, established in 2016.
My name is Lindy, and this is my family, why I am here.
When I was on mat leave with my daughter in 2016, I decided to take the leap and fulfill my lifelong dream of owning my own business selling my handmade items. I've been crocheting since 2011 and was inspired to make cute and practical pieces for the whole family. Most importantly, create items to withstand the wear and tear that living life to its fullest entails, thus allowing them to be heirloom quality items.
Crocheting and knitting will always be my first passion. As this business grows, I've transitioned from solely creating to sell at markets(my fave!) and online to designing and supplying to fellow makers. Throughout all of these changes, the goal remains to provide handmade, affordable, fun and quality items.
More amazing things have come from this small shop than I could have envisioned. This journey has become more than a required creative outlet, and a means to pay the bills. I am not only grateful for the exceptional clients and small shop community I have gained. They have been a necessary pillar of support surrounding my trauma survivor ship, parenthood, miscarriage and mental health journey. Because of this, I am committed to supporting others and breaking the stigma around mental health and inclusiveness. A portion of all sales is donated to various projects. I will continue when feeling supported and able to share my journey so that others may feel less alone and normalized.
I am excited to see where life's transitions take us and this business next, and thank you for joining me on this journey.
