Life's Too Short to Wear Boring Clothes!

With the 2008 economy downturn, I was forced to close my gift and quilt shop after 12 years, give up my beautiful log home by Yosemite and relocate to my mother's in Oregon. I'm on a life reinvention and this Etsy store is one of the steps in the path back to putting my life together again. Each purchase you make fuels my efforts and inspiration. Thank you so much for your support!

The fabrics tell me how they want to go into a design. I may start out with something in mind and before I know it, I'm in a totally new direction.

I love using upcycled clothing because there are so many choices between fabrics and designs to work with.

I work out of my basement sewing room filled with thrift store finds, vintage linens and baskets filled with ribbon and lace. I use mostly upcycled clothing but also leftover new fabrics from my closed quilt store. My happy place for sure!

    I have been sewing all my life and owned a quilt shop for 12 years. I'm now living in Oregon reinventing myself after the economy crash. Sewing upcycled clothing is my joy and work to support myself doing what I love. One sale a day is all I ask!
