About

I finally came up with my shop name "Nytka" which means thread in Ukrainian. From the time my mother taught me to cross stitch (Ukrainian designs) I've been working with some type of thread.

My items are primarily created out of repurposed sweaters and leather however, I have been expanding on my materials to include tweed jackets, trench coats, and pretty much anything that sparks an idea. With every item being unique, each creation is a new learning experience and I'm having a wonderful time. While there isn't enough time in a day, there's no stopping me now!

-Terri's Flower Shop, Naugatuck, CT
