I put together unique things out of other things that I take apart.
I've been sewing, knitting, and creating since I was old enough to read a pattern. I love making useful, beautiful, unique, one-of-a-kind things for you!

Frequently asked questions
I'm allergic to dogs...do you have dogs in your home?
GREAT question! YES, I have two dogs - a geriatric pug named Winnie and an English Creme golden retriever named Yellow. As much as I try, I can't guarantee that a little bit of Yellow isn't going to arrive with your new item. Winnie never moves these days, but Yellow...he is EVERYWHERE, literally. So if you have an allergy to dogs, I'm sure there are other shops that can guarantee a dog-hair free purchase. Unfortunately, I can't. No matter how many times I go over your garment with a lint roller.
DO NOT MACHINE WASH OR DRY. Your garment is made up of many different types of fiber, such as lambs wool, sheeps wool, merino wool, cotton, ramie, acrylic, etc. These fibers each wash up differently, and washing your beautiful coat or pullover in a washing machine would destroy it and render it unwearable. I hold no responsibility for those who attempt to wash and dry their garment mechanically. I highly recommend ONLY spot cleaning with water or a bit of vinegar water. Please let air dry after spot cleaning.
Why does my coat smell a bit like a campfire?
Here at Grace Beneath the Pines Homestead, we heat exclusively with wood. My workspace (i.e. dining room table) is next to the wood stove. If you let your coat air out for a day or two, the campfire smell will dissipate quickly. Alternatively, you may place your coat in a garment bag and place it in the dryer for five minutes on low with a dryer sheet.
Should I hang my coat on a hanger, or ???
If you've purchased a coat, please don't hang it on a hanger. The garment is very heavy and will stretch out over time. I suggest folding it for storage when you're not wearing it.
Why "Grace Beneath the Pines"?
We're not religious, but we do love great music. Grace Beneath the Pines is a song by Glenn Hansard that means a lot to my husband and I. You should listen to it! https://youtu.be/mDAKsDbHHNo
Grace Beneath the Pines is also the name of our Facebook page where we detail the entire process of building our own home in northern Minnesota during the COVID pandemic. Just two people hell-bent on providing a safe home for their family, never having built anything before! Enjoy! https://www.facebook.com/gracebeneaththepineshomestead
