Dear Valued Customers, 

After much deliberation and almost 6 years in business the time has come for me to close Created By Chell. Running a small business is no small endeavor and I’m proud to say I’ve accomplished this for almost 6 years. At this point in my life I have decided now that I am closer to family, to put down my crochet hook a little more often to spend time with them. Higher prices of yarn and materials is another factor along with a health issue, CRPS in my right foot (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) that I was diagnosed with and needs to be dealt with. Life has gotten a little…crazy… and I need it to slow down so I can take care of me for a bit. 

This was a very difficult decision for me. I have greatly enjoyed creating for my customers. I will still be crocheting and making jewelry but on a much more limited scale. 

StartingWednesday, September 21, 2022 you will receive a 50% discount off all purchases at checkout.Once all inventory is gone the shop will close or it will closeon November 5, 2022, my shops original opening date 6 years ago, whichever happens first. Whatever is left at that point will be donated to a local charity.

Thank you all for your support and business all these years. It has meant more to me than you will ever know.
