A shared appreciation for all things handcrafted
As twins, we have learned how to share everything--from the time we were babies! We shared toys, bedrooms, clothes, etc. Perhaps our earlier shared childhood experiences led to our similar deep appreciation and passion for all things handcrafted.
We both have our particular strengths. One of us has focused more on making quilts and knitted or crocheted items (Ruth), and the other on sewn goods, most often for babies or small children (Rose). Our interests in particular types of craftiness may change over time or during any week! Some days we like to embroider, other times cross stitch, but we have always feel the need to be creating some handmade good.
Rose Stauter/Ruth Montino
We are twin sisters who share a love of all things homemade and crafty: from knitted items, embroidered and crocheted goods to lovely machine and/or hand-sewn items like aprons and handbags.
I enjoy sewing, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, quilting. The shop is truly a reflection of those interests.
Many hours of our childhood were spent in fabric shops and in our mother's huge sunny sewing room, exploring her vast stash of fabric. We witnessed firsthand the creation of beautiful clothing tailor-made just for us. We remember vividly one such creation: matching full-length purple velvet winter coats lined with white fur cuffs and white fur-lined hoods. We felt like princesses in these coats.
Rose's 11 year old daughter, for whom this shop has been named, has inherited this fondness for sewing and a discerning eye for picking out quality fabric and yarn. She's quite dismissive of the large-chain retail store fabrics but loves to wander through the local quilt shops and yarns shops. Some of the designers we appreciate are Lila Tueller, AnnaMaria Horner, Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, and Robert Kauffman. My daughter Lizzie happens to have Down Syndrome. As she gets older, it becomes increasingly difficult to find clothes that fit her body appropriately. Our intention is to create beautiful, well-made clothes that look nice and stylish rather than just making do with store-bought, ill-fitting apparel.
