Spindles & Stitches was born of a love of fibre crafts that skipped a generation. Aleks Dok, the creator behind this pint-sized emporium, was first introduced to yarn by her grandmother (but the threads were orange, acrylic, and scratchy, so it didn’t really work out). Online tutorials picked up where grandma left off, and the rest as they say is history!

Though she knits and crochets, spinning has always been Aleks’s first love – she enjoys sitting at her wheel and feeling the fibres twist between her fingers. She shares her passion by dyeing and combing wool so that others can also experience the joy of creating something extraordinary with their own hands.

When she’s not playing with wool, Aleks loves tending to her houseplant jungle, baking sourdough bread, and watching true crime documentaries.
