Note from shop owner Hey, everyone! I hope your year is off to a great start! I had a little fall last month and so I am trying to get over some bruised and cracked ribs! ( Who knew they would be so rough to get over? Certainly, not me!) I had planned on opening the shop back up this month but it may be April or May before I can really get creating and sewing again! Thanks for your patience and I will be open as soon as these ribs will allow!

About

The Funky Silkworm

My oldest sister ( My Vintage Voice, Seamstress Moon) introduced me to Etsy a few years ago! She thought it would be a great place for me to showcase what I make! After giving it some thought and doing a little research, I opened up my shop, The Funky Silkworm! My store is kind of going down three different directions!

The first road has to do with my father's books! My father has been writing for as long as I remember! Once he retired, he started writing and publishing his books and we are so proud of him! You can find all of his books in my store and he would love to autograph any of his books for you!

The second is the road of Audubon prints! As you know I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! I realize that there are people in this world who can buy just about anything they want for their home. I also realize there are a lot of people who have to miss out on things they love because it is just not in the budget! It is my hope that if you are a lover of Audubon prints, I am making them available for you at a decent price so you can share in the love of them! ;-) I do have an ever growing collection as they just make me smile but I do try and limit myself so that there are some left for you to love and smile about too! ( It isn't always easy because I LOVE THESE PRINTS!!!! ;-)

The third road has to do with fabric. Either using it to create fun items or designing and making my own! When I first started, I had hoped to be working with silks and one day, that will happen! Right now, I am having a great time exploring cotton fabrics through discharge dying! It is a pretty cool process... the more I do, the more I discover!;-)....And the less fabric I ruin! It is so fun because you never know what is going to happen when you are doing it but i always love how it comes out in the end! I hope you do, too! Keep checking in, I am busy adding more designs as quickly as I can make them! Thanks for coming and looking! Don't forget to stop back by! I am working on posting things as soon as they are made! ;-)

Have a great day!

    I am a retired kindergarten teacher that loves to create things! Since I am not working full time in the classroom anymore, I am able to do a little more of what I love!
