About

I’m Caro. Born on the West coast of Canada, I spent my formative years in creative environs surrounded by fabric and yarn. Fabric cutting tables have osmotic properties though and I learned how to set in sleeves and turn hems before I was seven years old. Although I tried my hand at professional dancing and snowboarding for several years, I’ve since returned to my roots and am putting my knitting and sewing skills to better use.

Where do you buy your fabrics?

I buy from a few different places, and while I used to shop at Superbuzzy, Reprodepot and JCaroline Creative, mostly now I buy all wholesale.

Where do you buy your labels?

I’m a huge fan of Namemaker. The 100% woven labels take about 4-6 weeks, but the quality is fantastic and they’re well worth the wait.

What kind of camera do you have?

I have a Canon 7D. I highly recommend picking up the fiddy lens to go with it. It’s awesome in low light conditions. Oh and get a remote too.

So, you’re Canadian? I thought you were from Texas. Or wait. Boston? Where ARE you anyway?

I am Canadian. I moved from Vancouver to Texas in 2004. In October of 2007 we moved up to Boston and in 2013 I naturalized as an American citizen.

When are your episodes of Uncommon Threads going to air again?

Gah! I wish I knew. They were airing on the DIY network for a while, HGTV for a while and then both channels seemed to have dropped their craft programming in favour of more house renovation-y type shows.
