About

Several years ago I inherited a HUGE assortment of sewing supplies and fabric and I couldn't figure out what do to with it all. Never one to throw stuff away, I bought a sewing machine and re-aquainted myself with it and soon I was making things for friends and before I knew it I was selling on etsy and doing craft shows. About 90% of my items are made using recycled, repurposed, or vintage materials or "closet finds". A "closet find"is a material that someone has given me that was found in their closet when they got ready to move, their grandmother's chest of drawers, their mother's attic- you get the idea. I receive many of these items after the person passes away which makes them even more special. I like the idea of being able to continue on with their work. I hope you enjoy my shop!
