lucky in love, blessed with creativity & excitement.


we hope you had a lovely valentines day, even though its somewhat of a silly holiday, its still nice to spend time with your loved ones, and who doesn't love flowers and chocolate?

we have fantastic news to share today, our ravelry invitation arrived in our mail box sometime last night. we are so very excited about this and absolutely cannot wait to connect with tons of other knitters and creative enthusiasts. well keep you posted on our ravelry exploration.

more exciting news we are expanding our lines for the spring and summer 09' season. more colors, more styles and more exciting inspiring products to create with. the most buzz worthy addition is probably 4 new colors to the earth button collection -which so far has proven to be a big crowd pleaser.

last but not least we wanted to share one of our projects that is an original design and features some pollika coconut buttons. tina made this a little while ago and lone behold we open up the lastest issue of vogue knitting and they have patterns for making beautiful pillow covers. i guess we were ahead of you this time vogue :) whats nice about this pillow though, is that its got more to it than a big chunky cable and everyone that has seen it has remarked how cool it is that it has buttons on it. i mean why not they are everywhere else, on purses, headbands, bracelts, why not pilllows?!

well we must keep creating, keep designing and continue to search for more stores to share our inspiring products with. until we meet again,
stay well, stay warm and stay happy.

cheers,
pollika team

About Us

My Photo
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Imagine a day at work where you surround yourself with unique Swiss designed shawl pins, gorgeous buttons created in Holland, oh so precious yarns from the UK, and fabulous high quality felt and felting accessories, plus wonderfully, eclectic, full of life and spirit fibre artists. Knitting, felting and crochet it happens all in Pollika’s world. Just so you know English is my second language, here and there my fast thinking brain cells get confused and infected with my first language: Dutch. So, most posts are going to be written in ‘Denglish’. The will be accompanied by Lesley’s photography talent, that likes me to believe they will be clear, inspiring and bring a smile to your face! We welcome your comments! Tina
