Note from shop owner Awww, thanks for considering ReWoolables. I'm sorry I missed you. The warmer seasons are almost here, and so the shop is closed. I'll reopen in late summer to gear up for the fall season. See you then.

A simple little detail like a zig zag stitch also serves as additional strength the the seam on the underside.
Needed some vintage bling.

This color combination reminds me of sherbet ice cream. Hhmmm...probably not the treat you want to think of if your tootsies are cold, eh?

About

Birth in a Goodwill Check-Out Lane

You read the title correctly; a birth occurred in a check-out lane at a thrift shop. Thankfully, it wasn't my son's birth, rather it was my business ReWoolables. I make useful and beautiful items from felted wool sweaters.

Having stumbled across a book on repurposing wool sweaters one autumn, I began hunting thrift shops. By early spring I was addicted and showing signs of needing help. Case in point: I was wearing a sweater I had sewn from 4 other sweaters, shouldering my first purse (again upcycled wool sweaters), carrying an armload of more wool sweaters - more like spilling over my arms and elbows- while standing in the check-out line at a Goodwill.

The lady behind me asked if I was going to make things from all those sweaters. (What tipped her off I wonder?) We struck up a conversation, and she jotted down my name and number to make items for her boutique located on the square downtown. ReWoolables was born!

My bedroom is my work space and it has several tubs bursting with scraps. Felted wool lint can be found all over the house; once I found a wool scrap in the fridge. I have no idea how it got there.

    When I'm not hopping garage sales for wool sweaters and other materials to repurpose, I'm digging in the garden. My winter months are spent sewing. I'm a Hoosier mom to an ornery but sweet boy and married to his Dad - an archaeologist.
