Welcome and thank you for visiting The Gift Hutch.

For many years I have been designing and crafting pillows for friends and family. One of the things that influenced this creativity was watching my Mom sew just about everything from cushions to wedding gowns; never using a pattern even for the most complex designs.

As a child, I learned about different vintage style pillows from watching my grandmother’s neighbor and friend make them. Little did I know that the process stayed with me and today I make my own pillow creations incorporating the ideas from those memories. Other vintage style pillows I learned were smock and ribbon weave. These pillows are truly works of art and each finished piece brings much pleasure.

As a child, I learned about different vintage style pillows from watching my grandmother’s neighbor and friend make them.

The sachet passion began later on as I experimented with smaller pieces of fabric.

My first crafting experience was making dolls and dolls clothes as a little girl. Crocheting came next, as a young adult, then came Swedish Dawning (hand towels, etc), smocking (pillows), ribbon weaving (pillows, sachets, jewelry cases, etc.), macramé, quilling (picture frames - coasters, wall pieces etc.) and some of my own creations. My love of art and crafts and encouragement from friends and family led me to start sharing my work with you. I hope you will enjoy your items as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

My aim is to create beautiful enjoyable accents for you, your home and your gift giving.

I love flowers and am constantly awed at the beauty of nature that I wish I could record everything. Well, I am working on recording some at least and preserving them in different forms. That means I will have to get more adept at using a camera, among other things.

Please see my shop policies for more information.

Thanks again and have a wonderful day!
