The tissue holder was sewn very nicely, and beautiful fabrics with the lace was a nice tough. I will definitely use it for my purse. It matched the description perfectly

This seller takes great pride in her work and I received my item in lightening time. When it arrived I found it very neatly wrapped and ready for gift giving. There was even a cute little unexpected extra included. The seller reached out to me immediately to let me know when they started to work on it. My daughter is going to LOVE her new needle book. Thank you for wonderful service!

I bought this for a friend as she always carries peppermint tea in her purse to use at restaurants. It has such a pretty button and fabric goes so well with the button. Thank you for the nice way to carry tea in your purse., and sewn so well!

Vintage Linens Handmade into Modern and Functional Items Bring Nostalgia
In our recent times of COVID, many have looked back on their lives. Some have wonderful memories of sewing with Grandma or baking with Auntie. And so it is with my shop.
Started from a desire to appreciate the time and effort gone into creating embroidered linens from the past, and at the same time, keep them out of the landfills, I have done my best to open a box of memories. I do this by refashioning them into modern and functional items such as cell phone pouches, clothespin bags and even bonnet and dress sets.
Many of my customers have remarked that they once worked embroidery on something I have in my shop, and this opens an avenue of communication. It's my mission to bring back nostalgia, because heaven knows, sometimes it's nostalgia that gets us through. Like a warm soft blanket, vintage embroidery bears memories of simpler times.
All my items are handmade by me in my small attic sized room. Nothing is ever outsourced nor mass produced; I don't even have production partners. It is this integrity and pride I bring to my shop and customers and I hope you will be pleased with the results. Make those memories happen!
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator
A repurposed vintage person, maintaining a love of vintage linens by keeping them out of the landfills and making them portable.
Senior Production Manager
Rockell is a vintage Singer 503A Rocketeer. She came to me in need of a job as she was stashed away in a cabinet for a very long time and needed a makeover. If I ever need a workhorse, I can call on her.
Bertha is my youngest employee. A Janome 6500, full of muscle and brawn. She does just about anything I ask her to, but sometimes she can get a little snippy.
Minnie On The Go
Traveling Production Manager
Minnie (Singer Featherweight) goes with me everywhere. Her light green paint is pleasing to everyone's eye, and her small size is deceiving. She can go through many layers of fabric, and for long periods of time without giving up.
Power Grid Depletion Manager
Agatha's main role is when the lights go out, she comes out. All mechanical parts on her; no wires, no lights, no techno gadgets---just pure pedal pushing. An asset to any growing company.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging
I am very happy to gift wrap your purchase and forward it on to the receiver for the same shipping class as originally paid. For enhanced security, I will include a packing slip, but it will not show the amount of purchase. This is to ensure that the item, should it be separated from the package, safely reaches its destination. If you would like a note added, please let me know in the "Note to Seller" box
Custom and personalized orders
I'm happy to take your custom or personalized order as a lot of my business is that feature. I don't accept returns on custom or personalized items unless the item is flawed or damaged upon arrival. Many of my custom orders are completed within a week of the request, and sometimes within the processing time allowed.
How are your linens handled?
All of my linens and fabrics are washed in natural well water, with organic laundry detergent, fabric softener and/or laundry starch. They are line dried in the sun, weather permitting, or line dried indoors, or on gentle cycle in the dryer. Pressed with steam from natural well water, or organic laundry sizing, when needed. Then they are designed and created into the product you see in a one person, smoke free and pet free studio.
Shipping on Returns and Exchanges
With any return or exchange, you’ll be responsible for covering shipping expenses unless the product has a defect or flaw at which point I will pay return shipping, at same cost that it was sent. Please see my return policies for more information.
Do you use recycled packaging materials?
I'm an eco-friendly shop and take great care in the packaging of your items to ensure a safe delivery for you. I often use a recycled box or mailing envelope to cut down on waste and to pass the savings on to you. All purchases are placed in clean protective plastic bags. I won't send you something that I wouldn't want to receive.
I'm new to Etsy. How do I pay for my purchase?
Etsy is a wonderful marketplace, full of many handmade sellers like myself. And I'm happy that you've chosen to buy from my shop. Here is a helpful link for you. https://www.etsy.com/help/article/339
How do I use a coupon code?
Here is a helpful link, and if you have problems, feel free to contact me.
Do you offer layaway?
Layaway on Etsy is called "Reserved". While I'm happy to assist you, I believe in fairness for all my customers and equally give them the opportunity to purchase. I'm happy to place any item on Reserve for a maximum of 48 hours, unless otherwise agreed upon
Can I contact you about a problem?
Yes! By all means! I encourage customer feedback as I don't have a variety of "testers" and won't know how something works for you. Any input you can provide me with will be received in a positive way. My job is to make you, the customer, happy with your purchase.
