Owner Aimee Pelletier grew up crafting with her English grandmother during school vacations, but it wasn’t until later in life that she became serious about needle arts. Soon, knitting became a calming activity and valuable creative outlet for Aimee, a mother of two kids. She started making things and was pleasantly surprised when she was approached by people to buy them. Now, as Aimee begins her second career as a shop owner, she’s excited to create a place where others can find a creative outlet, friendship, and community.
