We can all agree that yarny crafts are the best. For some, though, the finishing process can be a burden.
I’m here to help. I’m happy to wet block, seam, add button bands, sew on buttons and weave in ends.
I can mend holes and embellish items with stitching, tassels and/or pom-poms for a new look.
Do you have an item that you made and finished, but don’t wear? Or a project that’s half finished but isn’t turning out like you want… I can unpick the ends, frog it, wash and wind the yarn for a new project.
Maybe you have tangled, messy skeins; I can untangle them, and rewind them.
Just let me know what you need! I’m here to get you back on your way to creating.
I use boro hand mending techniques to patch worn or torn spots.
Machine darning is also available.
Perhaps you’d like to just update your garments for a new look.
There are so many possibilities!
Give your woven garments new life with visible mending.

When I was nearly finished a basketweave blanket for my granddaughter, I made a mistake on the edge. Since I am not good at diagnosing and fixing a complicated mistake, I called Christina. She fixed the selvedge edge, added a few more inches to the length, weaved in the yarn ends, blocked and finished the blanket at a very reasonable price. I have shown a lot of people all of whom agree it looks phenomenal.
I ordered the cutest hat for my grandaughter. Everyone just loved it. It was so professionally done. I will order again in the future.
I have several English Wool sweater made by Black Sheep Knitgwear in Marsham, Norfolk, UK. I love sweaters and I’m totally convinced that the English just have a way with wool. Over the years beginning in the late 90s, I’ve aquired several sweaters from Black Sheep. Regular wearing created a need for some repair. After looking for several years for a local craftperson to whom I could trust my sweaters, Staff at Fibre Space put me in toudh with Christina. Christina has expertly done all the repairs needed and I’ve learned an amazing amount about caring for my sweaters. She is a craftspperson at the top of her game
When I saw what Christina had accomplished with my Scottish tweed coat, I was astounded and delighted. I recommend her work without reservation.
The damage on the coat’s left shoulder was the result of over 40 years of handbag shoulder straps and car seat belts rubbing against the fibers. Bluntly, there were no fibers left in a hole about 4 inches in diameter and I thought I would have to finally discard the coat, kicking myself for my carelessness.
Christina sourced wool fibers that exactly matched the original tweed weave and rewove the area such that it is now identical to the right shoulder. Her work is exceptional, and such a joy to encounter in this age of throw-away clothing.
Frankly, I did not think that this level of expertise existed any longer.
Christina understood clearly what I was hoping for the end result of my wool scarf. Christina did a beautiful finishing job. Exactly what I hoped for. Thank you.
