Ann Tucker's Profile

About

Ann Tucker here and I 'm on a ReWoolVival mission. To create with recycled wool. I love working with a variety of fibers, but over the years I have found that my greatest passion is working with repurposed wool sweaters, jackets, scarves, and blankets found while exploring thrift shops and tag sales. I have also incorporate recycled leather and burlap into my work.

All my items are handmade, so no two items are alike.

I make all my creations at my pet-friendly/loving, smoke-free home in Wisconsin. I also love helping others explore the often-hid creative part of themselves.

So relax, grab a soda, coffee, or hot chocolate and enjoy a quick browse through my shop. I try to add items regularly, so stop back and remember to shop often! :-)

Thanks for visiting…

Where did The Lavendar Tree come from?

LAVENDAR: I've always had a purple passion. I think it started the day I was born. It was only natural that purple came into play somewhere "in my name". I love the word "lavender" - but for some reason, I've always thought that everyone else spelled it wrong. So I think it should be spelled "lavendar". :-)

TREE: My grandmother was an incredible fiber artist - I believe way before the words "fiber artist" were ever cool. She was an extremely talented quilter, knitter, crocheter and could embroider like no one's business. She had a talent for the satin stitch to die for! My grandma (and mother!) helped encourage my passion for crafting and stitching when I was very young.

I fondly recall one sunshiny day, standing at my grandma's kitchen window and seeing the tree leaves sway back and forth in her orchard. She said the leaves were "waving" at us. I loved that. (Note: Since that time, I have found that birch trees make the happiest wavers!)

THUS: The Lavendar Tree.
