Updates

Recovery from surgery has taken longer than I ever expected. But slowly, surely, I'm getting back up to speed! Just finished a couple of colorful batik bags last night. :)
Still recovering from surgery, but almost back to sewing! In the meantime, here's a pint 2 jar bag. :)
Preparing for surgery early next week, so I've temporarily taken down the custom bag listings. The patterns are still available, and ready-to-ship items. In the meantime, I have lots of knitting projects planned!

About

From my little house among the trees...

My earliest memories are of sewing, and throughout my life I’ve been drawn to fiber arts of all kinds. My favorites are sewing, embroidery, knitting and crochet. I’ve worked in sewing and alterations professionally since I was 18. (Yikes! Almost 30 years now?) I find joy and satisfaction when I am able to use my abilities to create items that are not only lovely and unique, but also practical and useful. I also love to teach sewing, so creating beginner-friendly patterns is another joy of mine.

My business is located in my home - just me and a sewing machine. I must keep a careful balance between building and promoting my little business, and the responsibility of caring for my husband and two girls. I absolutely love interacting with customers, and working together to make items that exactly meet their needs.

I do my best to keep quality high, with sturdy materials and meticulous workmanship. I want the items I make to be useful for a long time. But I also want to keep prices as low as possible, so that they are accessible for most people. I choose materials based on these criteria - the best balance of quality and price. I often recycle clothing and home items into one-of-a-kind bags. Most items in my shop are made and ready to ship. I don’t like to keep people waiting, so orders are shipped as quickly as possible - often the same day they are ordered!

    My daughter Lydia has helped with the shop since her little hands were big enough to turn jar sleeves right side out. Lately she has been helping with sewing, and even making creations of her own, so it's time to make her an official shop member!

Frequently asked questions

Packaging materials

I know my zero-waste customers want to know! The #1 function of packaging is to get your item to you in good condition. Currently I am using kraft bubble mailers with some recycled content. (Researching a better option for when I use up my current stock - if you have wisdom on this, please contact me!) I also use tape on what I perceive as weak spots. I use heat-printed labels - I know they're evil, but they save ink (packaging) and trips to the post office (gas). I limit the "extra papers" to one business card and one tiny thank-you. I will leave those out if you ask.
