I’m Erica and Aster & Vine is my baby, although I guess we are approaching toddler-hood now. I’m a life-long crafter, I’ve always loved making things. I learned to cross-stitch before going to kindergarten – how my mom had the patience to teach me I’ll never know! Next up came macrame, then knitting, crochet, embroidery, and some dabbling in weaving. My makers philosophy is if you like something and you can make it, and making it makes you happy, do it! Pretty simple 🙂
I started Aster & Vine because I was having trouble finding a Canadian shop with the products I wanted to buy, so I became the shop I wanted to find. I’m so excited that there are brick and mortar stores that have supported me by becoming stockists of my products, and if you are able to purchase Aster & Vine products from a local shop – please support them! You support them, they support me – 1 purchase supports two small Canadian businesses!
