Collected Hands Studios: Handmade Textiles and Woodcraft in our Home Studio

Collected Hands Studios is the husband and wife team of Neal and Tammy Wenderlich of Corrales, New Mexico. We have made our living as programmers for over 30 years but have taken the time throughout our lives to develop our hobbies. Neal bought tools in lieu of furniture when trying to furnish our first home - thus, a hobby was born. I learned to sew and paint as a child and recently discovered these two passions can be combined to create unique fabric that is saturated in color.

We are both committed to creating items that are our own. While inspiration is everywhere, we develop our own patterns and designs and choose materials that fulfill our vision. We do not mass produce. In Neal's case, he likes to mix different woods and use a simple lacquer finish to showcase the beauty of the wood. In my case, I choose projects that offset the vibrant hand painted fabric with neutral-toned "utility" fabrics such as canvas and linen.

The end result, we hope, is a collection of useful and practical items that are also beautiful.

Shop members

  • Neal and Tammy Wenderlich


    We live in Corrales, New Mexico and we love making things from fabric and wood that are unique, beautiful and useful. When not creating, we enjoy gardening, home brewing, strength training, hiking and spending time with family and friends.

  • Tammy

    Owner, Creator

    I start with plain canvas or linen then throw down a riot of color using dye, textile paints, pigment pencils and threads. Then, I hang my favorite pieces on my idea wall for a few weeks until the fabric tells me what it wants to become.

  • Neal

    Owner, Creator

    In my 20's, I bought tools instead of furniture.  The first items I made were influenced by Shaker and Craftsman furniture. Eventually, I developed my own aesthetic which is clean and modern and allows the wood grain and color to shine.

  • Oliva


    I am a toddler who frequently visits my grandparents. My job is to keep them on their toes. Someday, they will let me have my own creation station. Apparently, I have to first prove to them that I will not immediately stick everything in my mouth.

Production partners

  • Printful

    I upload my designs to and then configure the design onto final products that I choose, such as t-shirts. Printful prints and ships the products.

If you receive your item and it has been damaged in transit, please contact us. We will need you to save all shipping materials and take photos of the damage so we may file an insurance claim with USPS. If you do not receive your item and suspect theft, please contact us.

When possible, US orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail unless other arrangements have been made. Upon payment, please allow 1-3 business days to process the order before shipping. USPS advises shipping times to US locations to be 1-3 business days, however no guarantee is offered by USPS therefore we can not provide a delivery guarantee.
