About Us

Hello, I am Brenda the owner of Natural Star where I create beautiful knitting patterns that are available as pdf downloads and indie hand dyed yarns. 
I create all the items I sell - kniting patterns, indie hand dyed yarn and handknitted accessories.  I love that I can involve my love of maths to create knitting patterns for knitters and hand dyed yarns to support knitting patterns.
I live in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand where creativity and the four seasons go hand in hand. Christchurch is a beautiful city that has quick access to the sea, mountains and rivers. I am very lucky to call Christchurch home!
Natural Star was created with my first knitting pattern in 2007 and Natural Star Yarns was introduced in 2014. 
I have been in this business for 11 years.
I have changed over to Shopify after selling on Etsy for the past 10 years.
I am the Creative Director, but often have the help of Mr Natural Star for spreadsheets and photography.  My 13 year old Miss Natural Star is quite creative amidst the dyepots.
