Hope & Buddy Co. is the little handmade business, started by Llew as a creative outlet almost 10 years ago.
From humble beginnings, Llew started her creative journey with crochet, learning on the go (with a little help from YouTube), how to read patterns and make baby booties, baby blankets, gorgeous crocheted letters for baby singlets and much more.
As the years went by, Llew decided to learn more about other yarn crafts and ventured into arm & hand knitting, crafting infinity scarves and throws.
Llew can now also add weaving and macrame to her array of fibre art, constantly on the hunt to learn new techniques and create a larger range of products to sell at markets and through her shop.
At Hope & Buddy Co., I like to support other small business’s by sourcing any supplies from others who are trying to make their way, just like me. I hand select suppliers from around Australia who make their own products, which I then use in the making of my products.
All timber items are shaped and styled by my hubby at our home in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney, whilst I hand pick all driftwood from beaches & riverbeds throughout NSW.
My product tags are custom made here in Australia by Little Laser Co., and all yarns, fibres & accessories are ordered through Australian suppliers such as Mary Maker Studio, Chunky Yarn Barn, Adelaide Hills Yarn Co, Midnight Weave Co & Who Says Sew. The Unusual Pear is where I have been purchasing my shape looms, loom frames & colourful roving wool for weavings.
