About

It all began with a simple idea...

"I'm going to make and sell pillows," I said, and that's how North Country Comforts began. Within a couple weeks I had set up an Etsy shop and with only 3 yards of fabric, began crafting pillows. I continued to add new designs, including pillow covers and table runners. Soon, I was ordering my fabrics in 35 yard bolts!

Orders continued to increase so much the first year, that I made the decision to quit my day job and my husband even left his job for a time to work with me to help really get the business off the ground. Now, 5 years later, I have a full time career working from home, doing what I love.

Since opening my Etsy shop in March 2011, I have had some amazing exposure and publicity. These are a few of the places my items have been featured.

and many, many more!

Even a story in my local newspaper!

My table runners and pillows have been in design shows, decorated model homes, weddings, restaurants, inns and hotels across the US and internationally.

I work out of my home in a loft space converted into a work studio for me. I live in the countryside of NH with my husband and daughter. Every season here is beautiful. I see turkey, deer, bear and sometimes even a moose. My hand painted designs reflect that inspiration and so do the rustic fabrics I use; burlap, unbleached cotton and ticking. I love vintage grain sacks and replicate that look by hand painting burlap with classic and modern colors.

I hand cut my own stencils and the animal silhouettes you find on my designs are created from my own drawings. I hand cut all my fabric, paint, trim and stuff all my items. My only machinery is a simple sewing machine and a serger. The rest is done by my hands. I have always loved to paint, sew and decorate. All things I inherited and learned from my mother. I feel so lucky that I can do these things everyday and make a living at the same time!
