Welcome!!

My name is Julia, and I am the creative force behind all the lovely goods you see here.
I'm a mama to 3, living in southern Ontario.

I have been sewing clothes since I was 15 years old and playing with dyes since I was 18.
I am completely self-taught and have come a long way from the first thing I ever made! (which was an electric blue fun fur apron top!)
Sewing is my passion. I love taking a piece of fabric and turning it into something beautiful. I work mainly with hemp (no more fun fur for me!) and other eco friendly fabrics.
All of the hemp I use I hand dye myself in small batches.

A lot of love and energy go into every piece I make. All seams are serged, straight stitched and top stitched where needed. Fabrics are all…

Great care goes into making sure the clothing I make will last many many moons!

About my dyeing~
I started my dyeing journey roughly 12 years ago. It was me, a bucket of burnt orange dye and a bag full of white bed sheets and pillow covers! My hands were orange for days..(now I use gloves!)

Then I became a mom and for some reason my son had the largest collection of white clothing that quickly became stained! One afternoon I began tie dying them all…I never looked back. There is something so special and fun about tie dying no matter how many times I do it.

I use a commercial quality low-impact MX fiber-reactive dye for all of my dyeing. I take great care in making a tie dye that will never 'fade away'!
