Hi, my name is Linda and I was born and raised in Saint John! I guess you can say that crafting is in my blood. When I retired, my beading started as a hobby and has now turned into “Bead Creations”. Sadly, I can no longer pass a bead store without going in and seeing what’s new. My beadwork is intricate and has evolved over time but I love being able to put together inexpensive pieces that anyone can wear and more elaborate pieces that are perfect for special occasions. And when my eyes are too tired to look at one more small bead, I work on my little gnomes. I just love making the perfect outfits and customizing them! I’ve done nurse gnomes, rocker gnomes and even a biker gnome. I have even been known to find the perfect little guitars or shoes on my travels. My favorite part about the Kingston Farmers Market is all the amazing people I meet, the fun custom projects and of course the other vendors that I have come to know and love!
My business started 10 years ago as a hobby when my daughters got married. I started making clothes for my future grandkids, friends started showing interest in my designs and it soon turned into a business. Every design is made with love and with high quality fabrics imported from Spain. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend or your own child for a special occasion or every day use, you can be sure it’s one of a kind. Dresses can be made with different fabrics/designs and from 6M to 5Y. Towels and bibs can be customized to show a baby’s name or different figures.
