Fun & Funky Rag Quilted Creations

My creative space: where it all comes together! AKA: a teeny little corner in my teeny apartment :)
I'm pretty easy to spot at a craft fair :)
Total theatre geek that I am, I made this T-shirt quilt out of shirts I kept from my years in high school drama club

How Frayed Fuzzies Came About

The arts in all forms have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember--right from when I was old enough to hold a jumbo crayon and doodle on paper taped to my high-chair tray. One art form that has always been a constant in my life is quilting. I am a 4th generation quilter (that's a phrase I never thought I would hear myself say!). My mother and grandmother always seem to have a quilt in the frame, and spend countless hours hand-quilting these beautiful works of art. Being of the Millennial Generation, I do not possess the patience for hand quilting. I chose to concentrate on rag quilts, because they are still a traditional quilt pattern, yet I can put a more modern twist to them with different patterns and color schemes.

I started Frayed Fuzzies on Etsy in July of 2010 as a fun way to pass the time between job contracts--I work primarily in technical theatre as a costumer and stage manager with the Actor's Equity Association, and when one show ends, it's on to the next: usually with another theatre company, and sometimes there is a bit of a time gap between the two. What started out as something to keep my mind busy has now turned into a full-fledged handmade business, and I have been loving every minute of it!

Mission Statement:

To find the fun & funky in the arts of quilting & sewing.
To create new innovative products in a rag quilted style.
To “be green” by using natural, and up-cycled materials when possible
To provide top-notch customer service
