About Me



My name is Kristan Barnes and I am the owner of Fleece& Buttons! I am a current Psychology graduate student and dog mama to two fluffballs! I grew up in a small rural town in southern Newfoundland and moved to the "big city" for a fresh start after graduating High School. 

Never in a million years did I see myself opening my own business and when I first started, I honestly had no clue what I was doing. Sometimes I wonder if I still do haha! I'm a learn as you go kinda gal! I originally began knitting and crafting when I was around 7, spending every afternoon creating something new. Curiosity didn't kill this cat!

Through the jigs and reels of it all, and growing into a bratty teen I sort of forgot about my passion to create until I was in my undergrad. That was when Fleece&Buttons was born and it has been my biz baby ever since! Being able to create something that puts a smile on someone's face has sparked me so much joy and I am so happy to get to be on this journey. However, I could have never gotten to where I am today without my family and friends supporting me along the way (oh no, now I'm getting emotional!!) 


Thank you so much for visiting my website, I can't wait to see what I can create for you!
