More About Hook, Line & Tinker
Laurie Dolhan is the artist behind the Hook, Line & Tinker indie craft studio in Ketch Harbour, Nova Scotia.
"As part of my journey to date, I have been a Jersey Girl, a Yukon Sourdough, and now I'm what some Nova Scotians refer to as a CFA (come-from-away). Like my favourite things, I have been lost, found, and creatively reworked. Throughout my life, I have always been making something or other. Craft has given me joy, and comfort, and taught me patience too ;)"
Hook, Line & Tinker launched in 2017 with a line of modern embroidery patterns and kits using her own original illustrations. Hook, Line & Tinker is a reflection of her values - care for people, respect for the environment, and a deep desire to create something meaningful and real through a shared act of making. I'm grateful for the opportunity to create and share my craft with you.
All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by Laurie for beginner stitchers. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic, introductory stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process.
Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping. Paper, including recycled content when possible, is used in lieu of plastic. The only plastic included in the kits is the small, unfortunate plastic labels on the skeins of DMC brand floss. Every effort is made to operate sustainably and with respect for our beautiful planet,
