An Introduction

My next show dates are: the Fibre Spirit show in Barrie on Saturday August 24th, and the KW Knitters' Fair in Kitchener on Saturday September 14th.

Ready made items will be removed from the shop a few days prior to these shows and will return within a few days afterwards.

Current Production Time:  Ready to ship items are going out in 3-10 days.  Custom orders are going out in 10 - 14 days.  Sweater bags or custom orders consisting of multiple items may take up to 21 days, sometimes longer.

Note: All prices in the shop are shown in US dollars

CANADIAN CUSTOMERS: If you want to avoid the exchange, I have now enabled the 'check/money order' payment option in my cart.  You can use this to place your order on the site, but pay by e-transfer or credit card through square.  Just let me know your preference in the notes upon check out and I will contact you with further instruction.

Canadian customers who wish to pay by paypal will still receive a refund after purchase to help with the exchange rate.


New!!! I am now able to vacuum seal my yarn for shipping, so shipping rates for yarn have dropped for both Canadian and US destinations.

 A reminder that if you don't see a ready made bag in the shop that you love, I will gladly take custom orders.  Either visit my fabric gallery page to see what is available or give me some ideas and I can order something in just for you.


Check out my monthly mystery sock blank club!  New themes will be posted to the site before the 1st of each month and will remain available to purchase until dyeing starts, or until spots sell out.  Each package includes a handpainted knit sock blank inspired by the posted picture, a set of stitch markers and handmade clay progress keeper to go with the theme, and a sweet treat.


Welcome to Bling Your String!

I've been a jewellery designer for many years and after the knitting bug bit me hard in 2008 I began using those skills to make my own stitch markers. A new sewing hobby slowly led me to making my own project bags and in 2010 I decided to open a shop offering my items to others. I only make and sell items that I would want to use myself, and enjoy using my art background to coordinate fabrics and beads together in a unique and pleasing way.

My part time endeavor became full time when my husband and I moved to a rural area and we welcomed our little girl in 2011.  She is a constant joy and enthusiastic 'helper', and one of the only babies I know who said 'bead' as a first word.  It is your support that continues to allow me to stay home with her, so thank you!

I ALWAYS welcome custom orders and customer satisfaction is my primary goal.  I will work with you to create a product you love and will enjoy using for years to come.

Please be advised that my items ship from my home studio located near Toronto, ON, Canada.  If you have concerns/questions about shipping times check out the FAQ link at the bottom of the page. 


I hope you enjoy my shop!
