Textiel Festival Leiden

During the textile festival in Leiden I will be at a more than beautiful location, the Hortus Botanicus Leiden (one of the oldest botanical gardens in the Netherlands). In this garden I will have a little market stall nested in between the beautiful plants en flowers of this amazing garden. I will showcase and sell my handmade textile oriented items.

I am packing knitting needles made from branches of pruned fruit trees handmade by my loving father, crochet hooks I made from different kinds of wood, needles I made from hawthorns, beautiful woolen yarn hand carded and hand spun by my loving mother. So a real family business :-)

And maybe even more exciting, the Hortus Botanicus Leiden let me use some of their pruning wood of trees from this unique garden. I transformed them into beautiful handmade limited edition crochet hooks and buttons. All these items and more will be for sale from wednesday to saturday (13-16 may) in the botanical gardens of Leiden and afterwards the items will of course be available online through my etsy shop.

Hope to see you at the Hortus Botanicus in Leiden for a nice and serene walk through the gardens and of course a glance at my handmade items! Check out here how you can get to the botanical gardens.

Your handcrafted needles, hooks and buttons are beautiful and delightful! I enjoy the tactile feel of bamboo crochet hooks and knitting needles - these would be even more special.
