The monsters made on this site are always made to measure and totally unique. But I’m always crocheting and knitting, you can visit my Folksy site to see what’s ready to buy right now.
Since graduating with a degree in Fine Art in 2003, Helen moved to Manchester, drank loads of tea and did a million temp jobs. Having learned to knit twice in her life, and subsequently forgotten, Helen taught herself to crochet (and re-taught herself to knit) during a stint of tedious unemployment, and bam! a love story began.
helenmakes finally found its feet in 2010, and since then Helen has crocheted and knitted approximately a bajillion crazy things on request. She has also led a number of workshops and been an active member of knitting groups, everywhere from Manchester to Huddersfield. It's been a wild ride, like.
These days Helen still drinks too much tea, but it's okay because sometimes she has herbal.
