Welcome to the land of misfit fabric!

We live in upstate New York and are very strongly influenced by the close proximity to New York City. Betsy never ventured far. Her rural upbringing included neighbors on one side who were fourth generation farmers, an artist couple on the other and a hippie commune just up the road. As the Catskills are complex, so are we.
