About Crimson Orchid Designs

From a Passionate Hobby to a Creative Business


Jenny Waddington Creative BusinessMy name is Jenny Waddington and I am the founder and owner of Crimson Orchid Designs. I started Crimson Orchid Designs in January of 2007 out of a passion of two hobbies: beading and knitting. I had participated in a number of stitch marker swaps and had wonderful feedback about my creations, so decided to take a leap of faith and open a small business. 

My focus over the years has grown and developed, but my vision has always remained the same; to provide hand-crafted, high quality, beautifully unique accessories for fibre enthusiasts. 

Part of my business vision is to always focus on high quality components. As such, I utilize genuine Swarovski crystals, known for their fantastic sparkle and shine, semi-precious gemstones, thought to have intrinsic healing properties and glass and crystal beads.

At times, I can not do it all myself, so have a wonderful family (husband, mother and father), who assist me with making items, packaging and shipping.

I welcome all custom or special orders and love working with other businesses for knit-alongs, yarn clubs and swaps.



We have recently introduced specialty supplies for fiber enthusiasts as well as Jenny's own handspun yarns.

  • We are proud to be a small family owned and operated business.
