About

Eight years ago, in 2008, on an impulse and an instinct, I quit the office job that was crushing my soul and started my own sewing business, Nightengale Needles.

Now in 2016, I have the good fortune and tenacity that lets me make my passion my livelihood; Nightengale Needles remains my full-time job. I've even been able to add my fiancé Trey to the mix as my office manager and number-cruncher. I sell my fleecy goods and geekery at anime, gaming, pony, and furry conventions from Boston to Atlanta, all up and down the Eastern side of the USA.

Eight years ago, in 2008, on an impulse and an instinct, I quit the office job that was crushing my soul and started my own sewing business, Nightengale Needles.

Now in 2016, I have the good fortune and tenacity that lets me make my passion my livelihood; Nightengale Needles remains my full-time job.

Here on Etsy, where it all started, please let me introduce you to my handmade goods, and in doing so, maybe I can bring some of my philosophy home to your heart, too. I believe that nobody has to live without joy. That whether it's in your job or your hobbies or your collectibles, joy and warmth of the heart are essential to living a fulfilled and forward-facing life.

I hope that some of my little offerings can bring that warmth into your home, whether it's a scoodie wrapped warm around your shoulders or a plushie perched happily on your shelf.

I make a particular focus on offering PRIDE themed items, because some people, myself among them, need more support and hugs when facing the world than others.

If you've got any questions about my stuff, a suggestion for what I should make next, or are simply curious about my little fluffy life, please send me a line!

I'd love to say hello.

Love, luck, and fleece fuzz--

Emily
