Such a lovely package arrived from Julia- so nice to have all the other extras and lovely presentation. She goes the extra miles, with email contact too.

I have nothing but the best things to say about Julia. She was a saving Grace in time of extreme need. A week before my best friend's wedding, she informed me that she wanted a BROWN hankie for the happy day. I literally had a week to find one. I found one in Julia's site and asked her how quickly she could get it to me. Not only she got it to me in a couple of days, she also monogrammed the happy couple's initials in their color. Awesome!!!! A for customer service, doing what (and when) she said she would and for being such a sweetheart over email. nNow, my bestie has a keepsake to wipe her happy tears in her color, all thanks to Julia. I'll try to attach a pic after Saturday :) nThanks again and keep up the good work. nPS- also came packaged super cute!
An Earthy Inspiration
I grew up in New Hampshire and probably 80% of my childhood was spent outside in the woods or at the lake (even in rain, snow, whatever - I just loved being outside)! I was so lucky to grow up in a rural setting with fresh air, green trees, and a sparkling lake just waiting for me to explore it, and I want to help preserve that in any way I can.
The waste and pollution that the fashion industry today creates is baffling, so to offset that I make sure that I do everything I can to keep my Etsy shop eco-friendly. For example, all of my fabrics are either organic and purchased as close to home as possible or upcycled from reclaimed fabric. I only buy 100% Organic cotton thread (although I am transitioning out older, non-Organic, threads), so it's biodegradable, and all of my packaging supplies (tissue paper, kraft paper, business cards) are made from recycled materials.
Fashion and environmental consciousness don't traditionally go hand in hand, but I'm trying my very best to change that so people will hopefully see that there are better options out there as far as style goes.
Throughout my life I have explored many different methods of creation including painting, writing, knitting, drawing, but I have found that the feeling of feeding beautiful fabric through my Grandmother's Singer is one of my all time favourite feelings, so these days I spend a lot of time holed up in my studio sewing. For my day job I work as the social media manager / event planner / jill-of-all trades for an independent natural foods store, and I also write for the Goodwill Industries International blog (Goodwill.org).
