Autumn and Indigo
Hi! I'm Claire, and I'm the maker and designer behind Autumn and Indigo. I've had a passion for fiber arts and knitwear for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until about 7 years ago that I actually picked up the hook and some cheap yarn and decided to give it a go. Being a stay at home mom and military wife at the time, I needed something to fulfill my creative needs, so the crocheting started.
Fast forward 2 years.. I'm divorced, I've moved back home to family and after 3 years of being a stay at home mom, I couldn't find work due to "lack of experience." That's when Autumn and Indigo started. A friend of mine had mentioned listing items on Etsy in order to create some sort of income, so.. I did. Shortly thereafter, my first scarf sold. Then another, and another, and then more. Before I knew it, I was crocheting scarves and hats every waking moment, my business blossoming into what it is today.
Design and Style
My knitwear and designs are based around daily wear and comfort. I aim for staples that can easily be mixed into your wardrobe. I like to make and design modern pieces for all levels of knitters and crocheters, introducing new techniques for those who are looking to expand their knowledge. I want my fellow yarn lovers to have fun and enjoy making their projects - and want to wear them as part of their daily life, it's what knitting and crocheting should be about!
Supporting handmade and other makers
Being a maker myself and selling my knitwear for over 6 years, I LOVE being able to support other makers and designers. Whether it be yarn, tools of the trade, or something personal for myself. We work hard to continue our passions, and with that comes the community - sharing our work and the things we've purchased from others. Collaborations are amazing in this aspect as word of mouth is everything! If you're interested in collaborating and sharing your work, please feel free to contact me!
