About

It all started at a meeting with my Jane Austen group...

I am a regular member of a Jane Austen group, and at one meet-up we were going to experience what it was like for Jane to practice her sewing skills by making our own cross-stitched items. James Edward Austen-Leigh said of Jane, "Her needlework both plain and ornamental was excellent, and she might have put a sewing machine to shame," & I said, "there is no way I am going to do cross stitch!" (There are so many wonderful cross-stitched creations, but I don't do well with such rigid guidelines & I can barely count beyond my fingers and toes.) So, when I saw that I could run free, with needlepoint, I got excited and set out to decorate a tea towel for my sister's birthday. I enjoyed this endeavor and upon it's completion I found myself making our founding Austenite a key to Mr Darcy's house. I am still working on getting an actual working key to Pemberley. Lord help Fitzwilliam when get a hold of that!

I am often in awe of the possibilities of things to create. My mind is full of so many wonderful ideas about hobbit holes, handbags & hemlines. The problem, I am ever frustrated by the lack of time and money to create them. I'm excited to have been blessed with a sewing machine to add some more practical items to the shop and still want to keep the focus on things feminine and I never want to get too far from the literary roots of Beyond the Story. I will, however, occasionally have to bow to my own personal nerdiness and create something from where no man has gone before.

Each creation sold at Beyond the Story is lovingly, fabricated in a smoke free environment. Though there are animals present, a rabbit and a cat, I do try to keep items fur and dander free to the best of my ability. Since all my wares are handcrafted, items may slightly differ and have artistically placed imperfections. I am always open to talk about customizing a product for you. That being said, feel free to let me know what’s on your mind and thanks for checking out Beyond The Story.
