In the Spotlight - Creations by Wool

I LOVE hearing the story behind some of our stallholders.  Thanks to the lovely Edwina for sharing her story about how Creations by Wool began earlier this year.

"Creations by Wool commenced in March 2012 when my mother started knitting Barbie clothes for her two grand-daughters. Many designs later I approached mum about the idea of starting a facebook business page featuring her designs which were practical as well as trendy.

As Barbie’s wardrobe was now complete we decided to feature other designs for young girls including knitted headbands, ear warmers with many and varied embellished designs.

With the creative juices flowing Creations by Wool was slowly expanding and over the ensuing months we have tapped into children’s and adult hair accessories followed by a small range of felt Christmas tree decorations. 

Unfortunately I haven’t managed the art of knitting, so maybe sometime in the near future I may overcome this and become an avid knitter.

Mum and I consult with one another on a regular basis discussing new designs and sourcing new embellishments etc.  Our harshest critics are my two daughters who seem to have an unfailing opinion on each new design.

Inspiration is drawn upon from many areas but mainly we just love ‘creations’ that are pretty, feminine, current and cost effective for our customers.

We are both very proud of what we have achieved and is a constant challenge in creating new designs that we hope our customers will like.

Creations by Wool is now featuring at some of the local markets where we are hoping to attract a loyal following."

Be sure to swing by this creative duo's stall on August 19th.  You can start preparing your shopping list by looking through their gorgeous creations online HERE too.
