About us

Maybe we haven’t met before. We’re Career Services! We’re passionate about bringing you the highest-quality knitting, crocheting, spinning and weaving supplies, backed by our top-notch customer service and unbeatable warranty. We’ve been in business for over 45 years and are excited to reinvigorate and relaunch a tremendous product to the market!

Career Services has been in business for over 45 years.  We are a non-profit and registered charity who operates a service and business dedicated to expanding employment opportunities by working with employers, partners and individuals facing barriers to employment.  By providing specialized supports, we help people pursue their work and life goals.  To fund our organization and services we also run a for profit co-packing industry that employs people with and without disabilities and performs contract packaging for many fortune 500 companies like Proctor & Gamble, 3M Canada, and Shell Canada.

For years, Career Services has looked for the right opportunity to have our own product, something that would give us more financial autonomy.  When we heard of the unfortunate news of the DVS closure, we knew it was the right opportunity for us.  We will be selling all products in this new venture with some added social capital, in that all profits made from the manufacturing of these needles are going to a registered charity that helps people with barriers find employment.  This is something our partners can use to help promote sales if they so wish as we love to share our story and how we help people with disabilities in employment. Career Services will be fully funding the operation and we will not be seeking any help from outside investors or banks.

It was a no brainer for us to enter this market after hearing many stories of customers with arthritis or dexterity issues who with the use of the Kollage needles were able to continue with their passion.  Creating and promoting an inclusive world is what we are about at Career Services so the connection to our new product, Kollage needles, is woven into the fabric of who we are and how we support our community.

We fabricate Kollage Square Knitting Needles & Crochet Hooks entirely in North America, with most of the manufacturing steps taking place on our property. We don’t smelt the aluminum ourselves (we buy that from a plant in the US), but we do basically everything else! We’re exceptionally proud to bring a high-quality, North-American-made product to the market that’s made with exquisite quality control and backed by a lifetime warranty. That’s what we’re about. And we hope that’s what you’re into, too.

By offering only the highest-quality products, we give consumers the opportunity to invest in tools that will last a lifetime. You won’t see anything disposable or ‘use-for-just-one-year’ in our product line.

We’re committed to offering you the highest quality products and outstanding customer service. Not only can you rely on our products, but you can also rely on us listening to our customers and the feedback we receive.  We look forward to our launch and stay up to date with any and all information on our social media pages:
