OUR STORY

How it all started:

 Every mother knows that when you first have a baby they sleep a lot. I have a really hard time sitting still so I thought I would start up a hobby. While my new baby Hudson slept I began to teach myself how to crochet. Soon enough winter rolled around and I was on the search for an easy way to keep my little guy's feet warm. I made my first pair of crochet slippers which I was complimented on and continually asked where I had bought them. When I informed mothers that I had made them they told me I should start selling them...so I took my first order and Huddy Buddies was started. 

A little bit about us

My name is Mekaila and I am the creator of every pair of Huddy Buddies. I do it all from the bookkeeping, to the cutting and punching, to crocheting, packaging, shipping, and marketing. I am originally from B.C and moved to Alberta to get my Education degree from the University of Alberta. I met my husband Graham while in school. We have been together for 12 years now and have two amazing children. Hudson is 7 and will be in grade 2 next school year. He is super sweet, loving, funny and loves dinosaurs, monsters, and cars. Delilah is 4 and is a sassy redhead with a contagious smile and laugh.  She loves good food, slides, gymnastics, and dancing.
