Blue Moon Fibre

Blue Moon Fibre Studio

Dyeing...Spinning...Felting...Weaving... Knitting and Crochet. I love it all! I search out high quality and unique fibres needed by fibre artists for the texture and lustre desired for beautiful hand spun yarns and felted projects. Quality workmanship, attention to detail and a sense of humour are at the core of all my work.

Comfy Cozy

Comfy Cozy Knits

When I am working with yarn, I feel comforted and at ease. This starts when I am preparing the yarn to be worked with, all the way through to when I am finished processing the yarn and working with it in a project. My inspiration comes from family, things that I see in nature, and experiences or images that bring me joy.

 Crafty Bones

Crafty Bones

I have such a love for all things fibre related. I have made it my goal to show others the beauty that is our industry. Creating gorgeous patterns that people want to make, having high end soles for slippers or bases for handmade bags. Using a crochet chart to show off how intricate and gorgeous crochet can be and allowing people to show them off on my merch.

Her Leather

HerLeather Co.

I love, love, love to create and make things. I've always loved natural materials such as linen, wool and leather, but anything made in leather always takes my breath away and I always have to feel and check it out. I tend to recycle, repurpose and mend before buying new. I have a mix of re-purpurposed and new leather and turn these simple pieces into unique and beautiful items. I’ve always wanted to learn to knit and this past Christmas I had the opportunity to take some classes. I’ve made a few things and am excited to make more. Knowing more about knitting and what items are used has helped me understand what features I need to include in my bags.

Little House of Macrame

Little House of Macrame

I've been drawn to creating with my hands from early childhood. Having explored many different mediums, I have found that hand weaving and macrame provides a wonderful balance of structure and freedom. The ˜canvas" begins as long strings hanging from the driftwood or dowel and blank warp ends threaded on my loom, while the design builds knot by knot and line by line in a slow reveal until the piece is finished. It's not until I've knot the last knot or cut the woven piece free from the loom that I see the work in its entirety and it takes on a life of its own.

Neatnik

Neatnik Yarns

Neatnik Yarns are hand dyed yarns that are anything but ordinary! Always one to search out the elusive bright, variegated colourways, when Angela (the human behind Neatnik Yarns) started dyeing her own yarns in 2018 it made perfect sense for her to gravitate towards the biggest, boldest and baddest yarns she could find!

Since then, Angela has been on a fantastical fibre adventure. Already at home knitting and crocheting, her spinning wheel arrived right as the pandemic hit in March of 2020, giving her time to play and hone her skills creating art yarn. By the fall of 2020 she was selling hand dyed fibre for spinning and creating Wooly Wall Hangings as a way to channel her love for her colourful and chunky art yarn. In December 2020 she bought her first rigid heddle loom. And that was it. Now she has three.
Since discovering weaving, Angela has expanded her yarn bases to include cotton and non-superwash bases, with the goal of making all the things with her yarns! Whether you are a knittier, crocheter, weaver, tapestry maker or hand knitter, she’s got a yarn for you!
