:: sustainable design ::
.................................
*i'm a great fan of sustainable living and sustainable creating. using beautiful vintage textiles in my work is one of the many ways i try to incorporate ecoforward thinking in my little business. when using vintage fabrics, i only choose textiles in excellent condition. each piece is fresh and bright and clean.


:: custom work ::
................................
* i love doing *custom projects*, including custom baby playmat quilts and crib-sized quilts for the wee loved ones in your life. please feel free to ontact me and we’ll see what we can come up with together!

or perhaps you see a rikrak goodie that you'd like but in a different fabric or colour? just let me know!

* i also love working with special-to-you fabrics, so contact me if i can create something out of fabrics that are meaningful to you & your family! i enjoyed doing this many times, repurposing with special fabric scraps, a cherished tie, grandma's apron, etc.... turning them into beautiful keepsake bibs, quilts, wall art, etc. i just love the idea of repurposing fabric – especially fabric with a wonderful story!
