Great coverups handmade by twin sisters in the heart of Vermont
My twin sister and I are sewing away here in Vermont, one in a log cabin, the other down the road, both with sewing rooms overlooking the lovely Kedron Brook.
Christmas morning when we were nine years old, we received a sewing machine and have been creating ever since. Along the way we raised families, and among many other things, taught handwork at our Waldorf School. There we loved teaching children how to knit, sew, felt, and weave. More important, we helped instill in them the sense that they can make and do whatever they decide to do.
There is almost always a project in the making in my hands. Working on knitting or sewing while sitting in waiting rooms or public places, I am often stopped by someone who looks at what I'm making and says, “I could never do that.” My reply, is "Of course you can, if you want to.”
My sister and I began a sewing program for women in a local prison. There we saw the healing power of someone learning she can sew an “outa here bag” to have when she walked out of those prison doors.
Our latest love is vintage. Opening our first antique 1940's mail order apron pattern and holding those unprinted tissue paper pieces, we were hooked. It was this love for vintage apron patterns that led to opening my shop on Etsy. Now we are sewing aprons (many made from our antique patterns) for all ages, even dolls, and oven mitts, chefs hats and baby bibs too!
A Mother, a teacher for the deaf, a Waldorf Handwork teacher, a hospice worker . . . Who am I really? A voyager through life learning to listen with my heart and my Soul.
