Joyce is a Canadian fashion designer who has been a heavy crafter since her childhood. Her maternal grandmother was a skilled seamstress with unlimited patience. Her paternal grandmother owned a sewing business for a few years when she was a child. She believes her love for yarn and textiles started from there. As an adult, she fell deep down the rabbit hole of fibre arts when she had the idea to ask her neighbours, who owned a sheep farm, to take the fleece to make yarn. She saved her money and bought a wheel. Then a carder, a loom, and dyes … you can guess the rest!
