Hello

Founded by embroidery artist Laurie Dolhan in 2017, Hook, Line & Tinker embraces creative imperfection and the pure joy of making. Located in Herring Cove, NS, we are a busy small-batch, craft production studio designing and selling fabulous, modern embroidery kits. Care for people, respect for the environment, and a deep desire to create something meaningful and real through a shared act of making, are principles firmly embedded into every aspect of our business.

Process

All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by Laurie Dolhan for beginner stitchers. Patterns are unique and modern in style. The limited colour palette and use of recurring motifs is purposeful - finished hoops hang well as mix-and-match groupings and tell a cohesive story within a theme. Some patterns are easy peasy (Level 1), others are more ambitious (Level 3). But all allow for creativity, experimentation, and calm.

Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic, introductory stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in our studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process.
