Welcome to my shop!

I (perhaps like many of you) have always needed a creative outlet. I've dabbled in pottery, polymer clay, painting, scrapbooking, photography, etc. As a child I would sometimes storm around the house yelling, "I need to create something!" Sewing is the outlet for me and has stuck longer than any of my other attempts.

I started helping my mom sew when I was three years old - though that just meant picking pins up off the floor! But soon I was hand stitching and turning parts for stuffed animals. I tried my hand at making doll clothes, started my first quilt in grade school, and later made robes, pajama pants, and other clothing.

As an adult, I no longer rage around the house looking for something to create - I just head for my sewing room! I love collecting fabric and I am a bit of a hoarder but I am bound…

Welcome to my shop!

I (perhaps like many of you) have always needed a creative outlet. I've dabbled in pottery, polymer clay, painting, scrapbooking, photography, etc. As a child I would sometimes storm around the house yelling, "I need to create something!" Sewing is the outlet for me and has stuck longer than any of my other attempts.

I started helping my mom sew when I was three years old - though that just meant picking pins up off the floor! But soon I was hand stitching and turning parts for stuffed animals. I tried my hand at making doll clothes, started my first quilt in grade school, and later made robes, pajama pants, and other clothing.

As an adult, I no longer rage around the house looking for something to create - I just head for my sewing room! I love collecting fabric and I am a bit of a hoarder but I am bound and determined to use all my scraps of fabric and not let them languish for too long.

I'd only been sewing for family and friends until 2008 when a new friend found out I could sew and she started telling EVERYONE! So I slowly started turning this into a business. My goal is to make items that are useful but also fun and funky and interesting. It's a continuing process as I experiment with what works and what doesn't, what I like to make and don't like, and what people want to see!

You can see more behind-the-scenes and updates if you friend me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/pages/From-the-Homestead/190780987603458) or check out my website (fromthehomestead.wordpress.com/). Really, it just makes me feel good to know that you like me enough to be my FB or website friend. =)

Oh... why From the Homestead? A homestead is technically any house, but it has a sort of back-to-the-land, earthy, homey, friendly sort of feeling. A homestead - where you can find a garden, chickens, someone making bread, laundry hanging on the line... Well, we've got some of that going on - the garden and chickens! But I haven't made bread in ages and the laundry line hasn't been installed yet! Oh well - there is just too much sewing I want to do! =)
