Story Threads

Leanne takes her passion for the importance of narrative threads and literally knits those threads into literary-inspired products: book themed or dragon blankets, elf hats and hoods, steampunk and goth headbands ... all inspired by writers like JRR Tolkien, George Orwell, Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne, Agatha Christie or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
