Amélie P. BédardÉmilia & Philomène

When asked about her profession, Amélie replies that she makes things. Although her professional background may seem eclectic, she was always guided by her thirst to create. First as an assistant editor at the Éditions du Sommet, then as an author and composer of songs, and now with yarn, her taste for aestheticism has always guided her. She has now been part of the fibre world for six years with Pure Laine Etc. In 2017, she founded Emilia & Philomene, creating artisanal, hand-dyed yarn, halfway between vintage and contemporary, between yesterday and today. Her love for everything that is created slowly, yet set in time, inspires her dyeing and knitting.

She is conscious of traditional skills and passionate about everything that's alive. She will most certainly infect you with her enthusiasm for natural curiosities and mysterious colours.
