About Slack Stitches

Margaret Hamilton, Slack Stitches

Hello, I am Margaret and I live on the beautiful Moray Coast in the North East of Scotland, just a stones throw from the Highlands.
I enjoy various types of needlecraft and am always creating something. I was fortunate to have a mum that taught me to knit when I was 7 and continued to teach me sewing, patchwork, appliqué, quilting, cross-stitch, embroidery as I grew up. She did a City and Guilds course in the 70s and I benefited greatly from her experience. She still advises me when I need it. My grandmother also played a part. She knitted and crocheted and whenever I visited she would sit me on the settee and give me the current crochet blanket to add a few rounds to.
I started my own business in 2006 and it has taken a few different turns since the beginning but this is the nature of crafting. Always new ideas and improvements to be made.
I am always open to discussion about the possibility of custom work if you see an idea in my shop but would like it made in a different colour, size, whatever. I enjoy the fact that what I make is individual and not mass produced.
Knockie bears are one of the turns that I mentioned above. I didn’t start out to make bears but my love of them somehow got mixed up in the creating thing. It took a while to develop bear shapes that I like and was happy with but I think I am pretty much there. I make one bear at a time and somehow they all seem to develop a different personality once the limbs start going on and the features are put in place. Some of them give me a much harder time than the others. I don’t name my bears as I leave that privilege to their new 'Mum's' or 'Dad's'. All I ask is that they are given a loving home! All my toys conform to safety standards and where possible I source my materials from local producers e.g. tartan.
