About Us

My name is Jenny Waddington and I am the founder and editor-in-chief of Crimson Orchid Designs.

I have always enjoyed all forms of fibre art – from knitting and crocheting, to learning how to spin my own yarn and needle felting. When I decided to start a blog, the most obvious love for me was the entire segment of fibre arts; to bring a vast supply of information, ideas, links and photos to inspire, motive and educate others in the same things that I love.Jenny of Crimson Orchid Designs

I started Crimson Orchid Designs in January of 2007 out of a passion of two hobbies: beading and knitting. I had participated in a number of stitch marker swaps and had wonderful feedback about my creations, so decided to take a leap of faith and open a small business.

My focus over the years has grown and developed, but my vision has always remained the same; to provide hand-crafted, high quality, beautifully unique accessories for fibre enthusiasts.

I look forward to sharing my love of fibre-arts with the internet community. I welcome your feedback and suggestions, so please feel free to comment and participate.
