About

Reaching Back To My Roots

I am a fifth generation Vermonter, born and raised in the wonderful Green Mountain State. My parents were both raised on small farms, growing up during the Great Depression. I mention this because I would not have been taught thrift, self reliance, and the value of a dollar handed down from my grandmother to my mother had it not been for the hardships they endured. Both of these wonderful women made their own braided rugs from old wool coats left over from rummage sales, quilts from my old pajamas and my fathers' shirts. I remember putting my heel through a worn sheet on my bed one morning. When I came home from school my mother had made pillowcases from the sections that were still "good". All our pillowcases were beautifully embroidered or tatted. Gorgeous hooked rugs adorned my Aunts' floors. All these art forms born out of necessity.

So here I am, after raising my family, sharing some of those wonderful art forms my ancestors performed without blinking an eye. And I dedicate this page, and this adventure, to my mother, Ada. I never could have become the person I am without you.

Welcome to Vermont Cottage Works. Hand crafted items from my home studio off the beaten path in Vermont. When I am not working as a registered nurse, I make my way back up my hill on a dirt road to create different items I think are useful and unique. You never know what will show up in my shop!
