Announcement   Looking for just the right gift? We'd love to help you delight someone special with a beautiful tea, coffee or kitchen accessory. Our product lines include Tea Cozies, French Press Cozies, Tea Wallets and more – made of the highest quality materials from my own designs.

The designs come from my personal experiences with and love for all things tea. The design for the Tea Bag Wallets (for example) came from my many years of business travel - where I would frequently find myself unable to get a cup of my favorite tea. I spent years carrying my favorite tea bags with me in a plastic zip bag - and just a little embarrassed as I would pull that (useful but not pretty) bag out in a restaurant, a business meeting or some other public place.

An avid sewer / quilter for more than 30 years - it seemed to me that it would be much nicer to be able to pull out a pretty little wallet with my tea bags or my loose leaf tea - instead of that plastic bag. The result is the original, copyrighted design for the Tea Bag Travel Wallet and the Loose Leaf Tea Travel Wallet - made up in a wide variety of fine quality 100% cotton fabrics. As with the Tea Travel Wallets - we continue to design and produce other original fabric tea, coffee and kitchen accessories that we feel meet the needs of the customer who seeks out beautiful, functional, high quality products to use personally and to give as gifts.

The original designs of OneMark Creations are handcrafted in a beautiful studio near our home in Beaverton, Oregon. We hope you enjoy using (and giving) our original tea, coffee and kitchen accessories as much as we do.

About

In the beginning - there was the old Singer sewing machine and the tea

We all have many different chapters in our lives - those chapters come together to form the story that is uniquely our own. My story began this way....

Chapter 1 - Learning to Sew
My grandfather was a practical man. As a child in his home - you quickly learned that if you were the closest person to a job needing doing - you were ideally suited to the task. With some instruction from him - I quickly mastered the old Singer sewing machine and creating new cushion covers, deck chair covers and drapes became my task (loved it).

Chapter 2 - Discovering Tea
I come from a family of coffee drinkers - there was always an old percolator on the stove - brewing up huge quantities of coffee - day and night. I never appreciated that particular smell ( I know most other people do) and I appreciated the taste - even less than the smell. At some point a copper colored round can of tea appeared in the kitchen. Boston Tea Party Orange Spice - I was hooked after one mug full. Who knew a hot beverage could taste (and smell) that good!

Chapter 3 - Career Choices
As a frequent business traveler for most of my adult life, I've had the opportunity to travel to and work in many interesting places. I sampled the tea everywhere I went but at the end of each day I enjoyed having a cup or two of my own favorite tea from home. My favorite teas went everywhere I did - usually in a plastic zip bag. The bag did not always hold up to the task - and sometimes my tea would be all over the inside of my carry on bag (just imagine explaining that at a customs check point - I've had that moment). I solved the problem by designing a Tea Bag Travel Wallet to carry my tea. No more random tea leaves in my luggage.

Chapter 4 - One Door Closes and Another Opens
Stuff happens. It became clear to me that working for one large corporation was pretty much the same as working for another - and I decided I was done with it. Time to make a new plan.

Chapter 5 - A Business is Born
The Tea Bag Travel Wallet found a receptive audience - soon I was making more of them than I ever imagined. It was joined by several other original designs for cozies and appliance covers and before I knew it - I was in business.

Chapter 6 - Every Quilter's Dream
As my business has grown - I've added shelves full of beautiful fabrics and one business became two - Quilter's Corner Store is my newest venture. I get to spend my day working with and around beautiful fabrics, tools, notions and more. It's more fun than I ever thought I'd have at work.

Chapter 7 - And the Story Continues
What comes next ? I can't wait to find out!
