About Us

Sandra (I Bee Weaving) and Nicole (The Spinnacle) met through the knitting world, and became fast friends over many cups of teach, tangled stitches and music. They hatched a plan to open a shop between their two homes (Victoria & Sooke!), envisioning a space where all felt welcome, included and valued, where local was the North Star, and had ongoing education in handcrafts - and North by Knitwest was born! Together they are dreamers, dyers, weavers, knitters, spinners, and carders who want to create a more colourful space for the community to work, play and of course..unwind!

It takes a village to raise a business, and they are so grateful to their friends and family, local guilds and fiber artists of the community who made it all possible
