About DancingArethusa

Sales 362
On Etsy since 2009

Creations to delight, from my tiny studio nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. This is where I dream up designs to bring some extra fun, color, style, and maybe even a muse to your space.

My work is driven by a love of design and dedication to good environmental stewardship. I hope that by offering beautiful, environmentally friendly choices, I can help others find that balance as well.
Most of all, I do sincerely hope that my creations bring you a smile!

My dream is for Studio Arethusa to have a positive environmental impact, so recycled and organically and sustainably grown materials are used as much as possible, and waste is minimized, recycled or composted. In addition, packaging incorporates recycled, often locally sourced, materials.

    I am the designer, the pattern cutter, the seamstress, and the business genius (joke!) behind Studio Arethusa. My given name is Leanne, though many know me by my middle name and creative alter ego, Arethusa. I'd love to work with you on a custom design, so send me a message and let me know what you're dreaming of!
