I knit, sew, and embroider! It's more a hobby than a business but I would love to have someone to send a cute handmade item to!

I'd like to trade either a small knitted item, like a pouch or a hat, or handmade patches, or a small sewn item. Love trying new things and am flexible.

Lil queer owned business of display hoops for enamel pins, earrings or photos. I hand paint/stain the hoop and curate cute, sturdy fabrics that go well with your aesthetic! There's loads of fabric choices and colours and they come in variable sizes. I also reuse the extra fabric and make little magnets that can be used to hold up a photo on a hoop if you don't collect pins! A display hoop! They vary with size. Mini hoops are 15 and largest go to 26. A pair of magnets are 5.

Hello! I'm an artist born and raised in KW. I currently am dabbling in watercolour art, but also make jewellery, and various nature/pagan inspired crafts. My art and jewellery are inspired by nature, spirituality, witch craft, and pop culture/rock n roll. My attitude about art and crafts is that they be fun, accessible and special. I love supporting other makers in our community!

Cass @loophole.ltd

Vancouver, BC, Canada

I make snack bags for bikes! All of the material I use comes from local fabric recycling centres. Upcycling is very important to me in this world of fast fashion! And cycling is also a great way to reduce emissions and exercise. These handlebar snack bags are great for holding your coffee/water/treats or anything else you’d like!! I can trade a snack bag or two, the retail value is $40/each. They are all custom made and the receiver can choose their colours!
