Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

The Hook Nook

Alright, friends. I am SUPER excited to introduce you to some new friends of mine!!!

In January 2020 I attended Creativation in Phoenix, Arizona as a vendor under American Crafts. Creativation is a HUGE trade show filled with booths after booths after booths of different brands of craft products. From paints and paper, to beads and buttons, to machines and tools... It. Had. Everything. 10/10 would recommend going.

While I was there, I met two of the SWEETEST ladies who were eager to hear about my collection and, given the opportunity, I then continued to "nerd out" with my yarn jibber-jabber about why I am so proud of each product and how each one was specially designed for function and beauty.

Fast forward a couple months, I am BEYOND grateful to let you all know that you can now find The Hook Nook Collection online at A Cherry On Top Crafts (ACOT)! Gahhh!!! *raising hand emoji*

With help from ACOT's Rachel, please meet A Cherry On Top Crafts!

A Cherry On Top started as Stickers Galore in 1999 in a basement with a little shoe box full of stickers. My mom, Kristin, wanted to share her scrapbooking hobby with family and friends and to give them an easy way to buy scrapbooking supplies online. She also just wanted a side business of her own to keep her sane while raising five kids!

Over the years, the business expanded. We moved out of the basement to a storefront and then to a larger warehouse, and went from selling just stickers to all kinds of scrapbooking and craft supplies.

Before long, we needed to change our name to better reflect what we sold, and it was then that A Cherry On Top was born! Why the cherries? The inspiration behind the name came about because we loved the idea of being the last little piece to your project - that final step to completing something beautiful. It's just like a sweet cherry on top of an ice cream sundae! ACOT now sells over 50,000 crafty products including paper crafts, art supplies, kids' crafts, planners, needle crafts, and more. We are passionate about helping people live their creative life!

We lost our courageous leader and mom in April 2018, after a long and brave battle with cancer. Kristin put her heart and soul into this company, and now we five kids are carrying on her legacy. She still inspires us every single day!

We met Jessica from The Hook Nook at Creativation this year, and fell in love with her stuff! We are so excited to now have these products in stock and look forward to working with The Hook Nook Maker community!
