LEE ANN GARRETT OF FRESH TWIST

Ten years ago I created my first designs, a line of hand knit, newborn hats based on fruit, vegetable and sports themes. The hats were a resounding success and as word-of-mouth spread so did demand. My designs now include knit baby accessories, tea cosies and women's felt hats. These are available at juried craft shows, specialty boutiques, online and now The Nooks Danforth!

I was reluctant at first to turn my knitting hobby into a business but finally decided to take it to the next level. I quit my day job, and after several years I now run my own business, Fresh Twist.

ANGIE HENDERSON OF FRECKLE FACE JEWELLERY

My work is an extension of who I am. I am inspired by current fashion trends but try to take those trends from something that would only be worn on the runway to something that can be worn in everyday life and enjoyed for seasons to come. I appreciate and am influenced by a variety of fashion styles and that results in a variety for my customers and something for everyone. 

DAFNA LIFSHITZ OF KNOT YOU KNOT ME

Fast forward to 2017. I remember macrame from being a child of the 70’s and 80’s. We had some in our home as well, and so when my mom asked me to make her some plant hangers, I was up for the challenge. I taught myself a few knots (thank you YouTube) and from there I was hooked.

I started making wall hangings and plant hangers, and opened my Etsy shop in 2017. Soon I started making necklaces for myself. They were fun little projects that I enjoyed making and wearing. When people started asking me about them, I knew I was onto something. Now I mostly make fiber jewellery.
