My name is Wendi Gratz. Welcome to my shop! I hope you see something here that makes you smile. I spent over twenty years working in the children's book industry and the experience has left its mark on me - all my favorite artists are children's book illustrators, I believe people are basically good, and I can't abide beige.

Now I live in the mountains of North Carolina just a hop, skip and a jump down the road from Penland School of Crafts - one of the most amazing places in the world. I offer free online videos to teach sewing and embroidery at www.shinyhappyworld.com. Won't you join me?
