About Rothwood Row
Rothwood Row began in early 2016 when long time crochet artist Heather McCormick learned that her Mother-in-Law had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Just that Christmas she had given a niece one of her beautiful crocheted Matelassé blankets. It was in those moments that Heather realized that she could turn what she loved to do into a business to help her in laws and help others to create wonderful memories she had from her own childhood.
These wonderful moments are what inspire Heather McCormick to create high end children’s toys and heirloom quality baby blankets. It has always been her goal to create items that were going to last from one generation to the next and be able to pass them down. Creating a bond and a thread that connect families together not only through blood but through the simple little things.
Immediately Heather set out to find only the softest in threads and yarns to create the finest in toys and blankets to touch baby’s sensitive skin. She took her twenty plus years of experience to design whimsical stuffed animals that any child would love to play with for hours and hours. All the little details were important in the creation of this first collection as she wanted to take parents back to those childhood memories and remember how important they are so they create new memories with their children.
Crocheting is not the only creative outlet for Heather. When she is not busy creating wonderful and charming crocheted works of art she makes steampunk inspired jewelry. She has a serious love of reading and enjoys fantasy and science fiction novels. Spending time with her family creating memories together is important for her. Rothwood Row is really all about family and those special moments spent together. From the tiny little moments that seem insignificant at the time to those big milestone memories. It has now come full circle for Heather as she gets ready to help other families create memories that will last a lifetime surrounded by thing that they will come to love and adore.
