ISewTotes' Shop Announcement

Welcome to ISewTotes and thanks for stopping by! Have a look around and let me know if you like something -- it's always good to get some feedback!

A special note: I have added a new section entitled "Joan's World". This is to remember and honor my friend Joan who lost her battle with cancer in the fall of 2012. Joan loved nature and the sciences. She was an avid gardener and diver who spent many years traveling to Fiji studying sea life in her efforts to help preserve the coral reefs. One of her many talents was sewing and as a result I was fortunate to receive many of her fabrics, a good many of them had been bought in Fiji. Items made from these fabrics will be listed in "Joan's World". The profits of these will go to one of Joan's favored organizations: the Society for Women Geographers ( and the Marine Environmental Research Institute (
