Hi and thanks for checking out my website!

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!

Be sure to check out the Where to Find Us page to see if there is a shop near you.

My search for products is far from over, if you have an idea for a product that you think would be a good fit for this store, please reach out to me at erica@asterandvine.com.  Not only would I love to hear your ideas but I love to connect with other crafters and fiber artists.

I hope you are able to find something you are looking for.

Enjoy.  Create beauty.
