Hanna Eidson is a fibre artist based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, who specializes in hand hooked and machine tufted rugs. Growing up in California, her family encouraged a lot of crafting and her love for fibre art (especially wool) began at age four when her mom taught her how to knit. After moving to Nova Scotia in 2016, she took a rug hooking class and in her own words, “was immediately hooked”. More recently she’s acquired a tufting gun which allows her to scale up her production. Love her non-traditional designs in such a traditional field; such great colours and humour.
Jan founded Poppytalk in 2005 while a student at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (now ECU) to catalogue inspiration from typography to interior design. Since then she’s collaborated with Target (creating a limited edition glamping collection), a wallpaper collection with Milton & King, as well has written as a contributor at Wired, Martha Stewart and Huffington Post.
