Fish Eye Sisters – Emsdale, Ontario, Canada






Jen is an award-winning fourth generation rug hooker, first taught by her Aunt (the late Jean Armstrong). Jen started hooking in 1999 and has taught for more than a decade. Jen has travelled all over Canada, the United States, and England, sharing her fresh and distinctive ideas.
Teamed up with her sister Sandra, the two sisters combined their respective talents to create beautiful handmade designs that are also both original and functional. Sandra has since gone back to “normal” employment while Jen continues to run Fish Eye Sisters.

Fish Eye Sisters focuses on a line of finished goods featuring as-is and hand-dyed wool fabric in a series of one-of-a-kind wearables and unique home décor items, all completely handmade by them in their studio just north of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada. Our current selection of finished goods are available for purchase in our online shop. Check back often as we will be adding new items as we make them!

    The photos of your work are just fantastic – I love all the colour and texture. I know that I contacted you last year to see if you might be interested in participating in our Fibre Arts Festival and thought I would check and see if your calendar is open for this year. We have a few spots left and your work would be such a great addition to the vendors hall. Wishing you all the best

    kind regards

      Thanks so much for your positive feedback, Jody! We sure love what we do and are very honoured and excited to be asked to join the TAFA List.

      Our fall is looking quite busy already – with Jen away on trips to England, then British Columbia – but thank you for thinking of us for your festival!
