About Us

Sockietalkies started with a sweet, simple idea inspired by my grandson, Coen.  Coen is 9 years old now and has cerebral palsy.  He endured 3 brain surgeries in the first weeks of his life.  The only thing we had to hold on to in those first few weeks was hope and faith. From the time he was in that little isolate I whispered to  him “You are strong” as he grew and started talking I added “and capable” The first design I made was “You are strong and capable” with a strong growing tree. Coen is a beautiful, smart, strong boy.  He surprises us with his abilities everyday!

BeedleBug is the Mama company for Sockietalkies and other companies that are coming soon.  Our products are meant to be inspiring and uplifting with messages of hope and motivation.  Living a beatiful life!We will always use the finest materials we can source and bring you high quality products made with love, thought and care.

We started Sockietalkies with just three designs. They are titled, Love you, You are strong and capable and You are music to my heart.  We used our budget designing, producing and starting up a small business.  With your support we want to add a toddler line, add larger women’s sizes, a ton more designs, athletic socks and a men’s line. 

“There are many things that make Coen special, like the bright twinkle in his eye, and his devoted grandma, Linda.  Coen has cerebral palsy and Linda always looks for ways to remind him he is strong and capable.  That includes inventing a whole new kind of sock! She created BeedleBug Sockietalkies, the only sock with a pulley and uplifting message of hope and motivation on the toe!  The pulley (and embroidered ring at the top of the sock) allows Coen and others like him to have more independence simply by having the ability to pull up their own socks.  Yesterday, they donated over 100 pairs to kids at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital so more kids can be inspired by the sweet messages and feeling of accomplishment.  Thanks, Coen and Linda!

The Perfect Socks

Meeting Susan

Prototyping

We went through so many different manufactures trying to find a company to help us perfect the sock.  So many came back incorrect.  We have piles and bags of incorrect socks….

Product Testing

I worked with physical and occupational therapists to ensure the pulley hole was the correct size and that their patients would be able to use these with ease.
