About

Throw nothing away! I am an artist and collector of found objects. I live off the grid where I sew and create almost every day using fabrics and craft materials discarded by others. I'm already winning the fabric contest & this shop is my excuse for collecting more fabric, more beads, more thread and more beautiful trim. I learned to sew and embroider as a young child and after my own children arrived and I gained a few curves I found I had to sew in order to have beautiful unique clothes. I love to make one of a kind garments for bigger women because we need more amazing choices.

Many of these items are handmade and hand stitched. Embroidery is especially time consuming and it's a skilled art. Handworkers never get paid for all the time they put into their work and I estimate that I make about $6 an hour on the little embroidered purses for example. It's not enough to live on and like many of yo, I'd prefer to live in a culture that valued traditional & women's arts. This is my passion and I hope you love it too! Every item is made with love and care to honor the materials and to beautify the world with lovely things.

All items are insured at shipping.
