Hello! We are Helen and Mary Beth, sisters from NJ, and also known as The Crafty Toads. We hand dye beautiful yarn and make project bags. Our inspiration comes form all over: favorite books, our beautiful Jersey Shore surroundings and other fun, whimsical ideas. Come check out our Youtube podcast, The Crafty Toads, to see what new craft or yarn has grabbed our attention (we have the crafting attention span of an ant).
For the last several weeks, the Toads have been dyeing like crazy to prepare for TNNA. We knew we would have quite a bit left to update the shop when we returned but we wanted to have a good representation of all our colorways. TNNA was a blast. We met so many great people and took some orders to expand our wholesale reach as well as set up some trunk shows at new to us shops. Stay tuned for more info on those.
When we got back from TNNA we took a couple of days to enjoy visiting family (NEPHEWS!!!) and then a couple more to regroup and recharge — because 4- and 6-year-old nephews are exhausting and GROSS. Earlier this week we went on a listing bender and updated our shop with all the Sock Toad, Hairy Toad and Sweater Toad we brought back with us. We also listed the popular Dream Catcher Kits and the sample 50-gram skeins of our TNNA colorway. Just head to the shop to see all the beautiful yarn.
