MEET THE OWNER + MAKER
Hello there, I'm Stephanie – known as The Creative Knitter! From as far back as I can remember, creativity has defined who I am. There's something truly magical about crafting with my own hands and witnessing the finished project come to life – a feeling I cherish every single time.
Being a part of the Ridgeway/Crystal Beach community has been a lifelong joy for me, and now, as a small business owner here, I still pinch myself in disbelief. Doing what I love in a place I adore is a dream come true.
Beyond running The Creative Knitter, I wear multiple hats with pride – a devoted wife, a mom to two wonderful souls, and a proud Gammy to an adorable little one. My family's unwavering support has fueled my pursuit of crazy dreams and ambitious goals, and I'm eternally grateful for their love.
This is just the beginning of an exciting journey, and I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride. Together, we'll knit wonderful memories, spark new inspirations, and create a vibrant community of makers. Let's embark on this creative adventure and make magic with yarn! 🧶✨

The Creative Knitter's Commitment to Creativity, Community, and Crafting Magic
Our Guiding Threads: Unraveling Our Values
I have always lived by the words, "A creative life is a happy life." I find creativity in all aspects of my day-to-day life and firmly believe that doing something creative every day fuels my soul and genuinely makes my heart happy. At The Creative Knitter I encourage and support every single person that walks through the door to embrace their creativity and approach each project with confidence and excitement. Creativity doesn't mean having all of the answers or getting it right every single time - it’s about the process and the pure joy of creating something with your hands that genuinely makes you happy.
The Creative Knitter storefront was born because I wanted a safe, creative space for people to visit and call home. Having a core community of people who share your passions and interests is so important for all of us and I wanted to create a place to give everyone the opportunity to be included. We have already built such an amazing community of fibre enthusiasts, both local and online, who support each other, laugh with each other, and help and inspire each other. It’s the core of our business and the heartbeat of who we are.
When we have a space where we can slow down and be our authentic selves, I truly believe that we’re able to cultivate amazing connections and create life-long friendships. We all know that yarn makes us happy, but I have to admit that sitting with friends, working on projects, sharing stories, and laughing until we’re crying are the things that make me happiest. Some days I just look around our creative space and soak in all of the connections that have been made (and continue to be made). It makes me so proud and reminds me every single day that I’m definitely doing something right.
