Grateful for the Little Things

Here at Twig & Horn, our team delights in the details—what can we say, we’re makers after all. We never tire of adding special touches to each and every product we source, create, and share.

Meet the Maker: Ruth Blohm-Hunter

“For Makers by Makers” is a phrase you’ll likely come across when you browse our website. But what does it mean? Simply put, it means our team is always on the lookout for products that we think will bring beauty and ease to your making practice—whether it’s a bucket bag designed for making on-the-go, a tool that helps you measure yarn weight, or a lovely vessel to collect your most precious notions...the list goes on.
