Crewel & Unusual is a multi-media studio offering unique embroideries, wearables, home goods, and custom embroidery all handmade in Richmond, Virginia.

Since childhood, I've enjoyed working with my hands and creating. As the son of a quilter/seamstress and a hunter/mechanic, I find value in both feminine and masculine handmade traditions; repairing engines by day and embroidering by night.

I studied Sculpture at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I learned and honed my craftsmanship and skills. I've been making "animal-friendly" antlers for about ten years and sewing/embroidering for twice as long. The faux antlers started as a mold making experiment with taxidermy. It snow balled from there; I started "The New Woodsman" as an identity, began making wares, designing and embroidering patches, and forever crafting ideas.
