Meet Shannon from Gillyweeds

Hi!  My name is Shannon Gilbride, and I'm the wahm behind Gillyweeds.  I am a busy mom of six, who loves to crochet, knit, and scrapbook.  My love of these things led me to open my shop on Etsy.  I make hand knitted and crocheted children's clothing, diapering woolens, and other items.  I offer hand made greeting cards for all occasions, as well as the Gillyweeds Bottoms Up Crocheted soaker pattern.

This is my first time participating in the shower, and I'm very excited to be a part of it!  For the baby shower, I crocheted a wool soaker and hat, perfect for a newborn.  Wool makes a wonderful, naturally breathable and waterproof barrier, keeping baby cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.  It is naturally antiseptic, meaning it only needs washing when it is visibly soiled, saving on laundry!  Diaper covers and clothing made of wool keep baby dry, and can be used over cloth diapers, as well as disposable. 

You can find Gillyweeds at,, and on Facebook:   Check out the Etsy HC Street Team blog I am a member of as well, for some other wonderful wahms who have both Etsy and Hyenacart shops:

I am taking a short summer break, but I will be using my Facebook page to announce my Fall specials.  Please connect with Gillyweeds today!
