Something From Nothing began as a business based on circumstances, but soon transformed into one based on a lifestyle. Local artisan, Karen Boldt, has always lived a life of frugality, so it is only natural that her creative business took on this same persona. Upon entering several thrift stores in the area, she recognized an abundance of old wool sweaters and the need to find a new use for them. In 2009, she began her venture crafting these cast offs into soft and very warm mittens. These well-loved hand warmers for prairie winters soon made their debut at many craft and trade shows in the Saskatoon area and are now available online at www.sfnothing.etsy.com. Something From Nothing Mittens are the perfect combination of eco-friendly materials with a trendy flair making great gifts for yourself or your shivering friends and relatives.
