About On Needles and Hooks

Welcome! I’m Cindy and like most of you, I wear many hats. I’m a wife, mom, grandma, and maker. I worked in the nursing field for over 40 years and decided that I wanted to create a business doing something that I love, instead of just bringing home a paycheck. Whether it was sewing, quilting, painting, crocheting, or knitting, my hands were always busy. My friends and family would often say, “I bet you could sell that!”, and I often did. So, that brings me to how I started this little business–I had so many projects on needles and hooks that I decided that would be the name my handmade business.

Looking at and touching all different types of fibers, yarns, and fabric lets me imagine the nice things that I make from them. Choosing just the right tools for projects is one of the best parts of the process. I knit, crochet, and weave scarves and shawls, and other accessories to be worn or used as home decor. I am happy to help customers find just the right product or to custom make something if time allows. Pattern design is the newest part of my adventure to help others feel the satisfaction from creating something handmade.
