ABOUT

Freesia Fibers began in 2016 as a creative outlet. It morphed into a full time gig for awhile & is now happily back in creative outlet territory. All content & knitwear is created by me, Megan! My MO is celebrating all kinds of craftiness and creativity. Questions? Comments? Concerns? Email me!

Oh hey, it's me, Megan!

Here I am knitting on the side of the Grand Canyon giving my parents a heart attack. I currently work as a Retreat Coordinator for Loyola University Chicago's Campus Ministry department (it's a dream job!). I'm passionate about being a Hufflepuff, knitting, color, my faith, traveling, my cat Queenie (see her cuteness below), and so much more.

I learned to knit when I was about 10 but I really leaned into it while I was in college as a form of stress relief and creative expression. I've also recently gotten into sewing and embroidery, so it's really only a matter of time before I pick up the rest of the needle arts.

Design Process

The name "Freesia Fibers" stems from the Victorian language of flowers, in which the freesia flower signifies lasting friendship. My designs are directly inspired by special friendships & relationships with people, creation, and everyday beauty - making "Freesia Fibers" the perfect name to capture the creative spirit & tactile nature of my work.

Materials & Sustainability

I only create using high quality natural fibers such as wool, alpaca, silk, cotton, linen, and mohair. These fibers are not only remarkable (did you know that wool can soak up to 1/3 of its weight in water), but much more sustainable than synthetic fibers. I love working with naturally dyed materials as well!
