Hello! You are most likely viewing this because we submitted an application to your craft fair and/or vendor sales event, and I provided a link to this page to help explain the type of products that we sell and example photos of those products. I appreciate your time taking a look at what we can provide as a vendor to your event.
Four small business owners with related products
There are four business entities involved in our booth area, including Finarina Knitwear – operated by Christina Gleason), Critical Hit Dyes (operated by Meg and Jess Lynn), Drea Made a Thing (operated by Drea Wall), and Pardon My Stash, a fiber arts podcast involving all four people – Meg, Drea, Tina, and Jess. We operate typically as a unit as we all provide fiber arts related items, but each of us provides different types of items within the fiber arts category. We like to vend together as by ourselves we might not have enough product to fill a booth, but with each other we fill out our vending spaces with a variety of products that cater to the fiber arts.
Finarina Knitwear is owned and operated by Christina Gleason under the registered business with the state of CT as Finarina LLC. She provides readymade knitwear items, or completed knitted accessories such as hats, gloves, scarfs, scrunchies, headbands, and cowls. She also takes commissions for custom fit garments and accessories. Christina is also a knitwear designer with currently six different completed patterns for sale. She brings these for shows as well in case someone would like to purchase a printed copy.
Finarina Knitwear has a thriving crafting community merchandise division which includes currently tote bags, t-shirts, and notions bags for crafters involved with the fiber arts. They are typically humorous in nature.
Finarina LLC is a certified Disadvantaged Small Business with the state of CT as an Iberian Pennisula Disabled Woman Owned Small/Minority Business. You can view Christina’s active certificate here. The business operates under a Sales and Use tax license under Finarina LLC.
