Living in Cache Valley, Utah, one hears the stories about the famous mountain man, Michel Bourdon and the annual gathering of fur trappers that happened here in the 1800s. Rumor has it; the valley received its name from the very trappers who met here each year. They would often stash their fur in hidden caches until they could trade and sell their products to other interested trappers during the yearly gatherings. The Cache & Stash Market Bag allows you to shop in style while providing you with a reusable and perfect shopping tote for trips to the farmer's market, grocery store or play date at the park. Created from natural plant fibers, the bag is strong but extremely flexible, growing as your cache requires. The small and medium bags easily hold 1 gallon of milk, while the large holds 2! Knitted from the top down, you can create your own bags in the colors you like, using only one skein from your personal yarn stash! They also make great practical gifts, and are fast to knit up; you'll want to make many for your next shopping trip.

Pieceful Creations began as a small hobby and grew into a full time, stay at home business for Tina Edgar. From 1998 to 2004 Pieceful Creations was dedicated to being a quilt and fabric online store but due to family life, we had to close our store for a few years, where I become a busy mother, with a volunteer job helping women and families in Cache Valley Utah. During that time, I began an old hobby of knitting and crochet to de-stress and get out of the house a few times a week with friends. I quickly learned that I loved exploring the different fiber arts. I learned to spin my own yarn, dye it, knit, crochet, loom knit, and even taught a few classes, at local retreats. Five years ago I began posting some of my patterns on Ravelry, with the hope that some day in the future I could do even more. Now is the time! Thank you to all my followers who have knitted some of my past designs and I hope you will enjoy the new ones as well as having the chance to learn new and exciting techniques and new ways of doing old well-loved yarn crafts! Welcome and may your tinks be few.....
