Behind AnnyMay is a woman with a passion for handmade. A fashion designer by profession, Anny Fréchette has a keen interest for handmade projects. She practises her craft as an eco-friendly artisan and she is involved in a number of ventures to promote handmade.
Anny is an experienced seamstress and she was trained in machine knitting. She loves to hand knit during the long winter nights in Quebec. With her head always filled with clever ideas, her workshop is constantly bustling with activity…
Her dream to work from home came true in 2008 when she created her Etsy online shop.
It was during a visit to the Salon des artisans de Montréal that the idea for the shop came to her. Quite disappointed with the fact that craftspeople seldom used, if at all, eco-friendly or natural materials, she decided to extend her eco-friendly philosophy by sharing with her peers her interest in eco-responsible crafts.
Since 2010, she has been writing a french blog called a.n.i.m.é. Later, she founded her online creative material and supply shop.
Soon after, Anny Fréchette’s keen interest would utterly become a day-to-day love story between raw materials, design and craftsmanship. She actually believes in changing the world, one handmade project at a time....
