Hey! I'm Michelle. I'm so humbled that you decided to stop by. Here is our story.
While living in Australia, an Astrologer told me that I would be moving across the world where I would then find my passion work and make a living of it. Crazy right?
Five years later after moving back to Canada, I fell in love with weaving on a trip to Mexico. The bright colours and the use of yarn sparked something in me. I wanted to learn asap, but I couldn’t find any workshops anywhere near me.
So, after picking up my first loom that came from the other side of the world, I taught myself how to weave. Family and friends began to ask me to teach them too! Then friends of friends wanted to learn and through the grape vine strangers were asking. I couldn't find any looms made in Canada, so I asked my super talented Dad, Paul to make me a loom.
My Dad grew up on a working farm in Southern Ontario, he was put to work and learned basic woodworking, electrical, plumbing, you name it! After retiring from a career in Computer Programming in 2015, he found his life passion in building anything from wood. Give him a challenge and he will deliver. Most days you can find him in his workshop dressed in a mask and an apron, crafting looms or maybe even a new set of drawers. He is a caring and loving man who takes care and pride in what he builds. If you get a chance to use one of our looms or tools, you'll see and feel what we mean. And that is the beginning of it all. Now I teaches workshops all over Ontario, Canada and my Dad is creating gorgeous looms that are being used around the world!
I am a stay at home mother of two under 4. I have a background in Graphic Design, Yoga Teaching and People Management. My work is handmade and one of a kind. The materials used are mainly natural wool, hand spun and hand dyed colours. Each piece is inspired by my daily surroundings and moods. I enjoys creating custom pieces and challenging myself and my creativity.
