CRAFT TOUR MAP
CROCHET & KNIT
Coastal Crochet and Card
Handmade crocheted and knitted items at reasonable prices! Specializing in Westcoast/Earth toned colour palettes that are gender neutral.
I am a registered nurse living in Victoria and I have a passion for yarn and creativity. My speciality is baby/child items but I also love making teen and adult hats...especially my popular slouchy hat that sells out every year. I crochet and knit for stress relief and I like being able to offer what I create at very reasonable prices. My colour palette tends towards earthtone and gender neutral shades, especially for my baby items. You won't find mint green or pale yellow in my stash but if your heart is set on it, I do welcome custom orders. Premium acrylics /acrylic-wool blends/merino wool options.

Ewe Brew Knitting Co.
Ewe Brew focuses on practical knits that have you covered. Whether you are stopping by your local brewery, vineyard or hiking trail, their growler, wine and water bottle carriers make the journey that much easier.
Lindsey from Ewe Brew draws inspiration by solving everyday problems with her fun, colourful knitting. Her first carrier was a growler cozy that allowed her partner to easily and stylishly transport craft beer home from his local brewery. With a focus on sturdy construction, her designs feature thick straps and washable materials that hold up in the real world. The latest offering is a crossbody water bottle holder which allows for handsfree hiking hydration, and comes in both adult and children's sizes. Happy shopping and thank you for supporting local businesses!
Fun, functional, and eco-friendly! Tristen Weiss is the owner, designer, and maker at mirabeans. Using upcycled sweaters and other reclaimed textiles, mirabeans creates one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories for men, women, and children.
Her passion has always been sustainable fashion and a desire to create items not found in mainstream fashion. As a teen, she began transforming pre-loved garments into something new while creating as little waste as possible. This hobby slowly evolved into a business and she’s been converting ugly sweaters into timeless pieces ever since!
Her collection includes fingerless gloves, mittens, flip-top mittens, arm and leg warmers, hats, totes, decor and more. Each item is unique and handmade with attention to detail, colour, and originality.

Perfectly Knotted sells handmade knit and crochet accessories (hats, scarves, headbands, bags, earrings) and some home decor items (crochet cactus, pillows, wall hangings). We make everything by hand, including the faux fur pom poms on the hats.
Purls & Coffee Design
Purls & Coffee celebrates those moments of warmth and tranquillity with stylish fashions and housewares. Invite these handmade, local, eco-friendly knits into your life to add a touch of elegance and classic beauty to everything from going out to doing the dishes.
Purls & Coffee Design offers slow fashion, handmade knit accessories for you and your home. Cowls, scarfs, headband/ear warmers. We offer dishcloths, trivets, cotton coasters. I started Purls & Coffee to give myself a creative outlet for my knit items, just to share with the knitting world what I made. Then I started designing and it took off from there. I do my best to make sure everything is sourced as locally as possible. Everything I knit, once it's lived it long life, can be composted and our tags can be planted.

Twig & Boat
Our wife and wife team create beautifully handcrafted items based around upcycled sheepskin and off cut leather. Our primary products include sheepskin/crocheted booties for little ones as well as minimalist design leather wallets and accessories. We try to make choices based on what we feel will better the world and the planet so that our children and grandchildren have a beautiful place to live and love. This is one of the reasons we’ve chosen to utilize pre-loved sheepskin jackets and off cut leather scraps.
At Twig & Boat, we are proud to have developed a reuse program for our booties. At the speed children grow, we’re aware that booties for babies and little ones aren’t needed for too long, therefore, we’d like to encourage you to Hand Them On to someone you know that could use them for their little ones. Or if not, Hand Them In and receive a 15% discount on your next pair. We will then wash and refurbish your pre-loved booties, and donate them to a long standing community organization that will provide them to young children in need.
