Biscay Bay

Sarah Bishop

Growing up in central Newfoundland, I learned the art of sewing, knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, quilting, woodworking, and so on, so forth. I had many knowledgeable (and patient) family members who instilled values of creativity, quality, hard work, and persistence.

It was this passion of creating that led me to pursue the idea of a small business.

Inspired by nature’s colours and textures, Biscay Bay products have an understated sophistication that mimics the simple, content lifestyle I wish to lead. Each item is carefully hand crafted, and is one of a kind.

I am thrilled to join the other artisans at Quidi Vidi Village Plantation and continue to grow Biscay Bay.
