About Us

What We Do:

* We offer a variety of reasonably-priced, high-quality clothes, gifts, and toys that are knit, crocheted, and sewn.

Our Priorities:

* Quality and Price. Our commitment to you is to give you the best quality we can at a fair price, while still honoring the investment of the artisans who have dedicated their time and energy to create something special for you.

* Respect. We respect and value all of the partners who make this effort possible. We know that our customers can go anywhere – and appreciate it tremendously when you choose Hooked and Loopy. We are always amazed at the craftsmanship and professionalism of our partner artisans, and feel lucky that you choose to work with us. And to those of you who organize the street fairs we attend, or help us design our websites, or take great pictures of our products – thank you.

* Environmental Consciousness. We prioritize sustainability – repurposing, recycling, re-envisioning the ordinary – to make something new and extraordinary. We strive to keep our footprint as modest as possible.

Store Policies:

* Shipping. There’s no reason to wait for something awesome. If you want a Hooked and Loopy product shipped, if it’s in stock, we will get it to you within three business days.

* Custom-Made Treasures. We know that sometimes you want something specific or one-of-a-kind. If you want something custom-made, give us detailed instructions and 10 business days and we will get it to you.

* Returns. If you don’t love what you get from Hooked and Loopy, you can return it in its original, unharmed condition to us for a replacement or refund.

* Your Feedback. We want to know what you like about us, and what we can do better. Comment here on the blog or send us an email at hookedandloopy@gmail.com.

Our Story:

* We were founded in 2012 by Sarah Potter of Washington DC.

* We are in this work because we love it, and we will stay in it as long as we love it.

* We started this company because we literally were obsessed with crocheting little stuffed animals. We could not stop. We were addicted – HOOKED – and everyone around us thought we were crazy – LOOPY.

* This is a family business. Sarah’s husband sets up the tents, Sarah’s daughter names the animals. Sarah couldn’t do it without them.

Still Loving Fenton Street Market

What better way to kick off the new year and a new venture than at Fenton Street Market?

Hooked and Loopy made its proud debut today in Silver Spring, and it was awesome!  We LOVE Fenton Street Market. It draws an amazingly diverse and cool crowd. We are so happy it’s back, and that the organizers from last year are still in charge. It’s great to see friendly faces from our GeOrnaments days. You loved our animals (we sold out of octopi, angelfish, and seals). You were super supportive of us (sorry, no business cards yet, at least till we nail down the new logo).  It gave us a warm and squishy feeling that we thought only sappy movies could give us…

Our very first sale?  Bunny change purse!  As you know, my mom makes these with leftover fabric from her prolific quilting and handbag-making.

I still love to eat your change!

Interested?  Check us out on Etsy.

But the stars of the show today were our amigurumi animals…

Hanging out at Fenton Street Market

It was great to watch folks make the discovery about the animals.  

“Oh, these are cute.”  
“Oh!  They have names!”  
“OH!  They all have different and cute names!  

Yes, friends, we DO indeed have little chicks named Chick Springfield, Henny Craig, Chicky Gervais, Hennifer Aniston, Daniel Cregg, and Hen Affleck.  ‘Cause that’s how we roll at Hooked and Loopy.

What do you think OUR names are?

We will be back in Silver Spring, at Fenton Street Market, on May 26. In the meantime, it’s back to the workshop to replenish our stock!
