from the maker

Firstly, I'd like to welcome you to my little store and thank you for taking the time to find out more about my creations. 

I am a believer in handmade pieces and the makers behind such items. I love nothing more than producing and also purchasing items that have a 'soul'. Obtaining items that have been made with someone's precious time, skill, love and care rather than mass produced store bought pieces with no individuality, just feels more meaningful and special. 

Creating useful tools from locally grown and foraged tree branches, is so satisfying. Using my hands and only some basic hand held tools to transform humble sticks into hooks that gives them a whole new life, purpose and function, excites me!

The rustic characteristics of each unique hook gives each user a completely handcrafted experience. Hopefully you will sense the love, care and time that has gone into each and every hook I personally carve in my tin shed here in Melbourne and lovingly ship worldwide.

Offering them to you all and seeing how positively they have been embraced is extremely encouraging and why I have been on my crochet hook carving journey for over 3 years now!! That's a whole lot of hooks, let me tell you!

As a small batch producer, I always try to make my items available, however as life can be hectic and free time to carve not always available, there may be delays to restock my store, but please be patient as I will do my best.

Please message me through the contact tab below for any enquiries, size availability or if you wish to place a special order.      (No wholesale enquiries please)  

I'd love you to follow my Instagram account - @mysuburbanfarm for store updates and any hook news, along with a healthy serve of all things rustic on the side!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you'll enjoy browsing my store!
