I love old stuff. Before I was 12, my grandmothers and mother had taught me to crochet, embroider, sew, quilt, knit and tat. I have a keen appreciation for the handmade and a desire to preserve handmade and unused items from the past. I spent 25 jam-packed in the technology industry but unfortunately lost my ability to do the needlecrafts I'd been taught. That hasn't stopped me from accumulating an enormous stash of vintage sewing supplies, paper, ephemera, old postcards. I'm starting by destashing some of the supply. My emporium is run out of my 70+ year old brick bungalow in a neighborhood I'm working hard to help preserve for future generations of Austinites. Thanks for shopping with me!
