Lynn Heigh's Profile
Everything you see in my shop is designed and made by me pushing fabric and leather through my new Juki sewing machine. I still lean on my almost forty year old Viking sewing machine, too. I love color and texture, fabric and leather and believe that the useful things we touch every day should be beautiful. I work mostly with small quantity sample and remnant fabrics and leather which helps keep costs down, and each item unique. Many products are designed around the limitations of the material. Small or oddly shaped pieces of beautiful leather or fabric provide challenges that keep my projects interesting every day, and that is so much fun! My bags are one of a kind, and while I may be able to make something similar to another piece, will seldom be able to replicate.
Handmade balances the technical, machine made, and mass produced products that fill our world. Many of those things…
