We have stocked Thread and Maple products in our yarn store for over a year. Thread and Maple are a Canadian women-owned small business based in Montreal. All their products are thoughtfully designed by makers for makers, including quality knitting organisers, project bags, accessories and tools for lovers of the craft. Many of these products are handmade with quality leather, and they are a joy to use as well as useful. With care they can last a lifetime!
Thread & Maple is the brainchild of long-time friends Samantha Perrault and Olga Paskalenko. Sam is a pro knitter and owner of Scumptious Purl living in Montreal, while Olga is a techie serial start-up starter (but seldom finisher - until now!) from Toronto.
Sam had been nursing the idea of expanding into knitting accessories for a while. Olga was determined to leave her corporate career and pursue a more creative path. Through a serendipitous series of events, the two found themselves chatting into the wee hours of the night about what they could build together.
Those calls quickly produced an outpouring of feverish sketches of product designs, all aimed to create elegant solutions to integrate the knitting craft (and all its chaotic mess) into the home with function and style. And thus Thread & Maple was born.
Our company is located in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Our ethos is defined in the three words, NATURAL TRADITIONAL HANDMADE.
We are a proud supporter of the Campaign for Wool, All Things Wales, Global Welsh and Red Dragon America.
