Fabrics are so exciting to collect and turn into something fun and pretty for the home or an accessory for personal use.

I have been collecting vintage trims and beads for many years and love to use them in my work. I'm always on the hunt for any trim that will make me smile when I imagine where I will use it.

I am happy to join Etsy since it is devoted to handmade items, which I adore. Two words that I love to say and hear are "home" and "quilt". My nest is empty now, but I still continue to feather it. For many years my husband and I have been manufacturing quilt making supplies that will soon be found in the supplies section of Etsy.
