Leslie Janson's Profile

About

I have always been drawn to the quality and feel of vintage textiles and notions, to the stories they tell, and to the idea of repurposing, using, and enjoying family artifacts. One day, when my sons were in their teens, time suddenly opened up long enough for me to hunt down my stashes of vintage textiles. My shop began when I made a brooch out of a vintage embroidered tea towel that had been handed down to me. After years of focussing on my career and family, suddenly I had a burst of energy to create things, which surprises and delights me.
