Cloth & Twine is a unique place to visit. A small shopping area on one side where you can purchase knitting and felting supplies, and the Edenton inspired products. On the other side you'll find the studio workspace where I teach classes and create products for the shop.
Studio - Join a class Mondays through Wednesdays (reservations needed).

Month after month you add another piece to your Nativity Scene.
Twelve segments/month - Twelve pieces
I carry lovely yarn, gorgeous knitting needles, and useful accessories.
As you will discover, I love knitting over crocheting, but that doesn't mean you have to. My yarns work for both skills.
I love to felt, knit, weave and over all be creative and work with my hands. It is rewarding and often challenging. I offer the tools and wool fibers I work with myself and encourage you to get started on your next projects.
If you have never used wool, this might be the moment you find a new passion.
Join one of our classes
[online or in the store]
I offer wet and needle felting, knitting, doll making, and sewing, just to name a few things on the list.
Over time I learned that most skills take time to learn and need to be practiced. Even an experienced fiber artist gets unexpected results at times. We are working with natural materials and each fiber is unique (even coming off the same sheep/goat/fiber animal).
Perhaps you are not looking for a class and just want to sit with others with busy hands. I am encouraging everyone to join the open get-togethers to draw from each other knowledge and support.

The Ringalina Doll
I have created the pattern for this doll. Arms and legs are attached and more easily moved. She/he also has a more defined body shape. Her facial features can also be more expressive.
Happy Children At Play
Juniper arrived so fast. She is so breathtakingly beautiful and made with so much love from a very talented and good taste doll maker. Exquisite craftsmanship with the highest quality! It's a great joy to get to know Annette and her doll. Her doll is one of a kind and carries very special character. It melts my heart every time when I look at her lovely and sweet face. And her clothes and the headband...Wow~~What can I say, they're just gorgeous!
My little darling arrived today! she's just perfect and precious In every way! I Love Her! Can't praise enough for all the beautiful details. Love to touch the gorgeous hair, so soft and real. And the dress and outfits are made with supreme quality, I'm sure a real girl would also love to want one too:) Thank you so much, Annette, for sending her to me!""Thank you so much for making the doll, her lovely outfit and the outfit for our Palumba doll. Everything Is EXTREMELY well made. I am beyond excited to give the doll to my daughter for her birthday next month. You are quite talented!
We aren't a wealthy family, however, our Ringalina doll Lisa Mollen has been a joy for our entire family for 6 1/2 years now. She has soothed my daughter through her daddy's multiple deployments, and been a constant companion for all of us! Poor Annette has repaired and recovered Lisa through her many love nibbles and accidents, not to mention all the replacement locks of love that have lovingly been restitched. The cost of these dolls pale in comparison to the love, artistry, craftsmanship and friendship that goes into them. I wouldn't want to envision my daughters childhood, escapades and adventures without Lisa and now Elle! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Best Elf Ever!”
From the age of four to almost almost six Princess Buttercup has been there for my girl. She learned to braid Buttercup's soft strawberry blond hair, a big accomplishment my daughter is proud of (me too.) She was there by my daughter's side when we moved to a new house. I have no doubt that she'll be holding my daughter's hand as she starts her first year of school this fall… Your dolls are more than just dolls: they are the keeper of secrets, an adventurer sharer, an empathetic best friend, a dear family member. She is honestly my daughter's favorite Waldorf style doll. I can truthfully tell you that I believe she is the most well made. Just thought I'd share this with you.
