About Sherrie

I run my business from Amherst, Nova Scotia. 


I started a business called in 2014 after I had two heart attacks and a stroke and  needed to figure out a way to work from home.

I started with sock monkeys which became very popular over 4 years and have gone all over the world. I have created and sold over 6000 of my monkeys but decided I needed and wanted to do more.


In January of 2018 I made a few Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Tartan Scarves and some other products like table cloth sets, runner sets, some skirts and other products.

They took off. In April of 2019 I changed direction and started Maritime Tartan Company creating all sorts of tartan products.


Pricing for the products was very simple, give a great product at a great price. I looked at it this way "What would I want to pay for an item like this in a store"?

I have been sewing for over 40 years and i am very good at it. I do not not let anything leave my workshop unless it is perfect!

Keeping mostly everything handmade (except wool products) here in Amherst Nova Scotia Canada.


I recently started carrying wool products made by Patrick King Woollen Company as I do not work with wool personally. There was a huge interest in it and Patrick King Woollen Company was the perfect fit for my business.

My products have shipped worldwide as far away as Hong Kong and i am always getting new projects! 

I love hearing from people.
