    Through The Years, Our Knot Tyers

    We have a lot of tyers that work in the shop on a daily basis and others who work at home. Keeping the inventory up is always a challenge between the two shops in Mystic and for our website orders. Our artisans mostly come from an art or craft background bringing with them much enthusiasm for creativity.
    Our snowmen and Santas were developed during idle conversation in the shop while tying. First the snowman then the next year the Santa was created. Pretty sure there is an angel still in the works!
    The giant shamrock started as a singular creative project. It has now finessed into let's make a bunch and decorate the lighthouse at the Holmes St. shop in celebration of the Irish Parade. Hopefully the wind will stop blowing so we can hang them.

    Jill, sitting among her buoy friends, also makes a lot of macramé items available in our 2 shops in Mystic. Her macramé buoys hung on the Stonington Lobster Trap Tree along with other artisan's buoys. I love this photo!
    Everyone tries their hand(s) tying the plant hangers, choosing colors and their own patterns. These are available in both Mystic shops.
    Our door mats come in 4 sizes, some people even hang them on the wall.
