Castlemaine, Australia, maker Mavis says, “It’s my honor to make (and find) quirky and cute things that make life easier and more funnerer for knitters, crocheters and the people who love them. Plus jewelry now, too, because why not. I am particularly fond of skulls, cats and hearts and you’ll find them in a lot of my work.”
Knitting/Crochet: Needle Stops
Chicago LYS Nina opened in 2004. Nina, the original owner, had a vision of an inviting and contemporary space, and she filled it with beautiful textures, colors and lots of inspiration. After nearly 13 years, the shop transitioned into the hands of Hilary, a longtime employee and lover of all things crafty. Great yarn from Movers & Makers and others, sewing patterns, embroidery and more.
