Small Batch Quilted Home Goods + Curated Creative Supplies

As a woman specializing in "traditional hobbies for women", ie, sewing and embroidery, I am joining the movement in reclaiming these "crafts" for recognition as art. Right now, I am focusing on embroidery and quilting. I'm inspired by activism, feminism, nature, and the urban homesteading movement-- themes that are often reflected in my work as a textile/fiber artist.

Most of my materials are gleaned from thrift stores, estate sales, and family members in an effort to conduct business in an ecologically responsible manner. I upcycle second-hand finds.


Ponderosa Creative is an unapologetically feminine, woman-run, earth-centered quilted home goods and creative supply company. Ponderosa is for the bold yet soft. For the creative and motivated. For the eco-conscious. For parents working tirelessly to create a better world for their children. For those who value home, family, and equality. For those who are into being kind, good people and spreading joy with others.

Each step of the process is completed by me and my small team.

For example, quilts: often starting with hand-dyeing the fabric, piecing blocks together, layering the "quilt sandwich" of the pieced quilt top, fluffy batting, and smooth backing fabric, and then top-stitching and binding to complete the quilt. Each quilt is one-of-a-kind and heavily draws on my love of the northwest, community, modern womanhood, and admiration of simple shapes + cozy textures.

For example, thread gloss: we design the packaging, research and source the best materials, develop the formulas, brew and pour, package, market, and ship.

  • local seamstress + production assistant

    Shelton, WA

    local seamstress provides sewing production assistance during busy seasons. I design and construct quilted panels, and do most of the rest of the steps, and helps with a few in-between time-intensive steps. This allows me to focus on the design and quilting of batches and new product development.

  • local cosmetic company

    Olympia, WA

    helped produce the original formula for ponderosa thread gloss in early 2019, but I have since remodeled the formula and develop and produce ponderosa thread gloss in-house.
