Announcement   we've already had our first snow here in New York's Hudson Valley, so Winter really is coming! i'm gearing up for 3 local holiday markets:

HV HULLABALOO - Kingston - 11/19+20 http://hvhullabaloo.com/
SUDBURY WINTER GIFT SALE - Kingston - 12/3 http://www.sudburywintergiftsale.org/
INDIE MART - Narrowsburg - 12/10 + 11 https://www.facebook.com/IndieNarrowsburg/

i'm a big proponent of making your clothes yourself, (check out my book on how to draft your own sewing patterns, and see if i'm teaching near you some time soon! http://hodgepodgefarm.net/?page_id=1522) but if you are not inclined, i'm here to make them for you! Cool-weather staples include the long-sleeved smock dress, cotton fleece sweatshirt tunics, and cozy colorful printed leggings.

*hodge podge* is an ever-evolving collection of one-off home-grown pieces including women's clothing and accessories. all pieces are hand made by me, and no two are ever alike. i believe in making from scratch, repurposing, and leaving the tiniest footprint possible... wouldn't you like to wear something hand made with love??? i welcome custom orders too; just send me a convo.

i can teach you how to make clothes! check out my book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes, and my online workshops in pattern drafting, sewing and crochet: http://hodgepodgefarm.net/?page_id=3532

if you dream of a handmade wardrobe but aren't up to making it yourself, i'm happy to do it for you. i am now offering *made to order* listings so you can order exactly the piece you want. you may wish to visit my *hodge podge handmade clothing* gallery to see more possibilities:

Made two new crochet-yoked smocks for custom orders this week. It's always a surprise to see just how they'll turn out!

About

practical, modern handmade clothes for real people

i've been making my line of one-off pieces since 1998 when i opened my shop, Patch 155, on the Lower East Side of NYC. i figured i could commit to the label *hodge podge* because it would allow me to do almost anything, and i do like to dabble! i sew, crochet, draft patterns, embroider, spin yarn, knit, dye and print, and like to utilize as many of these processes as possible in one garment! i prefer to do things the old-fashioned way to create work that could never be mass-produced.

in my twenties i worked as a designer in the fashion industry, but was disenchanted with the reality of how garments are made so cheaply in factories overseas. i saw that the higher i progressed in that world, the less i would actually be making or designing. with that realization, i left and opened my own shop. it was there that i began teaching, first crochet and then sewing. after 4 years of shopkeeping i closed the store and opened one of the first indie craft schools in NYC. from there i began teaching at yarn & fabric shops and design studios around the city, and eventually wrote my first book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes.

after 18 years of big city living, i finally escaped to the mini-farm of my dreams in the gorgeous Catskill mountains of New York. my studio has windows on three sides so i can see my chickens running around as i work, in addition to deer, hummingbirds and other wildlife. i love making custom pieces for people that they will wear in their daily life. i hope i can make something for you!

    i have always been a Maker. as a kid i painted rocks and made woven ribbon barrettes, and sold (er, more like tried to sell) them door-to-door in my hand-painted wagon. now i make one-off artisanal handmade clothes that i hope will become heirlooms.

    I am thrilled to have found a production partner in Good Clothing Co., a sewing facility who believes in ethical working conditions and sustainable production in the US. With their help, I'm able to make more clothes + focus on tasks only I can do!
