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 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 stayed in Edmonton to grow our family and moved to Vancouver Island in 2019 to raise them in my hometown of Nanaimo, B.C. We have been together for 16 years now and have two amazing children. Hudson is 8 and will be in grade 3 next school year. He is super sweet, loving, funny, and loves Pokemon, Legos, and Nerf battles. Delilah is 5 and is a sassy redhead with a contagious smile and laugh. She loves good food, anything arts & crafts, gymnastics, and exploring the outdoors. She is excited to be going to Kindergarten this school year.
We are located in Nanaimo B.C, Canada.
