Creating the useful and beautiful

I have always had a passion for textiles and creating things by hand. I learned to sew as a child and have been making things with fabric ever since. Now I design, sew, and knit from my studio in Cambridge, MA. I love to incorporate vintage fabrics in my work. My focus is on designing and making simple, useful, and beautiful items.

Every piece in my handmade collection is made by me with great care and attention to detail. Most pieces are made in an edition of 2-3 and many pieces are one-of-a-kind.

In addition to handmade pieces, I offer a vintage housewares collection in my shop. All vintage items are carefully selected by me from various sources in New England. I update my shop frequently with new items, so do check back in!
