our team

Though filled with love and passion, hand-dyeing yarn and fibre is an exacting, labour-intensive process that needs the hands of many. We’re a small but scrappy team committed to bringing light and joy to people’s lives through unapologetic colour. Meet the wonderful group of people who bring our colours and yarns to life.
Felicia Lo

Felicia Lo

Founder & Creative Director
Felicia is a designer and entrepreneur, born and raised in Vancouver, Canada. Her lifelong passion for knitting, colour, and design led her to starting a blog in 2004. A year later, SweetGeorgia was founded at her dining room table with nothing more than three skeins of sock yarn for sale on Etsy. Since then, SweetGeorgia has become a way of life where work and play are inseparable. When she’s not playing with yarn, she’s chasing her two littles around with her Oranje-loving husband.
Hubert Mock

Hubert Mock

Production Manager
From the early morn to the evening song, Hubert could be seen either frolicking through the studio floor or, perched on his red chair in his corner lair, picking away at a little bit of this and a little bit that — all in the effort to keep the place humming. He loves organizing everything to make it just right (except his desk looks like it just got hit by a west coast storm) and he derives great pleasure from the sense of completion that comes from getting your orders filled and out on its way to you. When he himself makes it out of his SweetGeorgia burrow, you may find him enjoying one of the local scenic hiking trails with his family and friends.
Teresa Mock

Teresa Mock

Sales Operations Manager
Teresa joined SweetGeorgia in the summer of 2011 and since then she has had several different roles including studio assistant, dyer, production manager, bookkeeper, and now Retail Operations Supervisor. Working at SweetGeorgia allows her to spend more time with her little one while the older two are at school. The most challenging, yet also enjoyable part of her day is 4:00pm… when all three kids are together.
Tabetha Hedrick

Tabetha Hedrick

Design & Editorial Director
Tabetha lives by the belief that joy comes when fully participating in the present moment. And that joy is ever so easy to find when immersed in the world of fibre! When not knitting, writing, editing, or researching, she fills the time raising two girls, two dogs, and one husband in Tennessee.
Brigid Zurock

Brigid Zurock

Marketing Manager
Brigid grew up around knitting and textile arts, first learning to crochet from her Grandmother at a young age. A proud Estonian, she is greatly inspired by the handicrafts and folk patterns of her heritage. Come weeknight or weekend, and you can likely catch Brigid folk dancing, singing, tearing up at something that’s “oh so sweet and lovely”, taking part in a local Estonian event, or hanging about beautiful Vancouver with family, friends and her Frida pup.
Charlotte Lee

Charlotte Lee

Assistant Production Manager
Ever since Charlotte attended a four-session crochet class in grade 9, she has been fascinated by the world of fibre. She is interested in almost all kinds of fibre arts: from crocheting and knitting, to needle felting, spinning, and weaving. The biggest enjoyment of life for her is to craft with friends, where teas and sweets are provided. Initially joining the studio as a precision dyer, today Charlotte is the Assistant Production Manager at SweetGeorgia.

David graduated from Vancouver Community College with 2 trade certificates one being in culinary and the other being in automotive painting. He started with SGY in 2012 as a packager, but he is now our main precision dyer. David is amazed at how the colours layer on the yarns and fibres and is always excited to see new colours be born each season.

Hoi Chan

Hoi Chan

Precision Dyer & Studio Assistant
Hoi graduated from Emily Carr University in 2018, and has been working at SweetGeorgia as his first job. Since working at SweetGeorgia as a dyer, he has learned many colour combinations and colour theory to help develope his own artmaking. His artistic skills also play a part in creating the very vibrant, unapologetic colours yarns of SweetGeorgia’s. Hoi has an aspiration to become a full artist, but is constantly being distracted by video games and movies. His goal now is to continue to bring more colours to the people, both as hand-dyer and as artist. Hoi likes to create watercolour paintings and pencil drawings. He is a cat lover and enjoy reading horror stories.
