About me

Hi there –

I’m Danielle, the face (and hands) behind Woven Whimsy.

I’ve always been a creative person – I can remember savouring my new coloured pencil crayons as a child, and attempting fabric painting as a teen. As I’ve got older, I’ve realised that I need to be creative as a form of “self care” (some people like bubble baths, I like to make stuff!).

I live with my husband and two children (Evan, 4 and Cara, 2) in beautiful Cape Town. I’m a molecular geneticist by day, but in my (limited) spare time I love to make things with wool and thread. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you find something that you like. I love making custom items, so please get in touch if I can help to make your fibre art dreams come true.

– Danielle
