#MakerSpotlight: Stolen Stitches

By: TNNA Editor

This month we’re heading to Cork, Ireland to highlight Stolen Stitches! Maker Carol Feller is a structural engineer… turned knitwear designer and teacher. (Wow!) While she spent her adolescent years knitting in primary school, her family also has a strong history of crafting. Her mother sewed many of her clothes, her grandmother was an expert knitter and her aunt ran a knitting shop in Dublin. Carol has been widely published in books and magazines, and travels the world teaching in yarn stores and at fiber festivals. She does it all! Read to learn more about Carol and her craft.

Tell us what makes your business unique.

Combining designing with my own yarn line creates a wonderful synergy in the end product.

Share a “fun fact” about you or your products.

My company name, “Stolen Stitches,” was picked because I started to knit again after the birth of my fourth child. I didn't have much time available so knitting became my “stolen” time… The name “Stolen Stitches” has stuck ever since!

Share a favorite creative resource that inspires your making.

I love both Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration; the colors, imagery and moods are great to get your creativity kick-started.
