Jillian Welk is the owner of Cabin + Cove, based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
Cabin + Cove offers a collection of knitting patterns that inspires a new breed of knitters looking for on-trend, practical designs. Each pattern is written with the beginner to intermediate knitter in mind, offering clear instructions and spectacular photography.
Each year, a collection of Cabin + Cove knitwear is available made-to-order here in the shop and ready-made at select markets and shows.
Jillian is proud to share her love of knitting with others through workshops offered throughout Kitchener-Waterloo and surrounding areas. She is committed to giving people a positive first experience to knitting and hopes to inspire people of all ages to enjoy this craft.
With the goal of creating a more visible, social and modern knitting community, Jillian hosts free monthly Sip n' Stitch socials in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. These socials are held at local cafes and offer the opportunity for knitters and crocheters of any skill level to come together to meet, mingle and make.
Cabin + Cove is also home of The CozyRiot Project - a series of projects that gathers knitters and crocheters to come together to create and spread the feeling of cozy and warmth to those in need.
On top of this, Jillian holds a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Masters of Science in Health Studies from the University of Waterloo.
