we are two sisters who could do nothing but create
I can't remember ever having a scarf that was not handmade. Our family is a do-it-yourself kind of people. Everything from costumes, game boards, doll houses, books, scarves, and prom dresses were made by hand. We are by all means a normal family, just people who enjoy an artistic challenge. My sister and I (hello, I'm Emily) first learned to crochet from our grandmother when we were very young, continuing the line of handmade. In fact, it was while I was wearing a green hooded scarf made by grandma that I felt closest with the art of creation.
We were visiting the great Redwoods of Northern California, hiking in the Muir Woods Forest. The air was so cool and so sweet I couldn't breathe enough. I was overwhelmed with the need to live and to create. Standing in awe of the Redwoods, I finally knew that it was my nature to create.
Our inspiration comes from clean mountain air and sheep-spotted pastures. We breathe rustic and homemade. Currently, I am practicing making my own yarn on my humble spinning wheel. The wool I use is alpaca and llama, generously sent to me from a second cousin's farm in Washington. When I am confident in my spinning abilities, I hope to make everything in the shop from scratch: from woolly mess on my table to the pretty package on your doorstep.
In the meantime, thanks for supporting the handmade student!
