Berniolie's Profile

Hello, I'm Bernadette. As a teenager I learned to sew and as a young adult, educated as a crafts teacher. After that I worked for years with a collective where we sold our own designs and unique lady's clothing. To have an outlet for my creativity my next logical step was to start working for a circus and design and make costumes.

Around 1990 I started to knit and crochet again, in my free time. I learned it at a very young age from my mother. I found this so inspiring that I opened my shop in 2008 to have a place to share my creations. I make shawls, shrugs, cowls and capelets.

Starting 2012 I quit my job at the circus and work my shop full time. While I knit or crochet, all kinds of ideas pop up in my head. Inspired by color, yarn or a texture from my environment. I also convert my designs to patterns, which also can be found at my shop.

Any kind of yarn but I love lace yarns
