I ordered a custom lanyard from Wendy. Asked for multiple measurements to ensure the correct length. Sent pictures of possible fabrics to use, along with mock ups. We messaged multiple times. Each with a quick reply. Received the lanyard within a few days. I've already had lots of comments on it. She went above and beyond! Will definitely be ordering from her again.

About

What makes us different and a tiny bit about my background.

My name is Wendy and I call myself the Chief Sewist here at Little Creek Maple Farm. I love sewing and my story is a lot like others… I learned to sew from my mom when I was young, she gave me her old sewing machine… blah, blah, I won’t bore you with the rest.

I am a fabric collector. I have collected fabrics in my stash from places like Mood Fabrics in New York City as well as my local fabric shops in New Hampshire. I learned everything I know about color from my background in Interior Design. I love to find original fabrics or repurpose an old something into something new and modern. Most of my designs in my shop have more than one fabric, sometimes they have a few colors and fabrics, creating textures that pop! That’s my word for coordinating fabrics, I love to find the perfect combo that highlights both fabrics and makes the colors come alive. I consider myself more of an artist than a crafter. You will find some unique fabrics in my shop. This is one of the elements that separates us from other shops, fabrics and colors that POP!

You will also find an attention to detail in my shop that you may not fully realize until you receive your order. I take pride in my work so I make sure to iron seams as I go so they are flawless and crisp. I use a ton of stabilizers in between my fabrics so that they have a bit of body and hold their shape. For example, our lunch bags will stand up on their own without anything in them because of the stabilizers between the layers of cotton. This attention to detail has been noted over and over in my reviews.

The third difference that sets us apart is the original design of most of the items in the shop. Most often my patterns are developed by me and not a pattern that I have purchased from another company or designer. I do have a few patterns I use and I give those designers credit in my listings.

This year we are adding custom embroidery in the shop. I am happily exploring my new embroidery machine in the studio.

A few words about Maple Sugaring. For a few weeks every year at the end of winter, I head outside and maple sugar with my family. We do sell a bit of our private reserve in the shop in the early spring. We have about 50 taps and a wood fired evaporator that we tend to make about 10 gallons of syrup each year. Our friends and family look forward to our syrup each year. You can read more about our sugaring adventures on our blog at www.littlecreekmaplefarm.com

Frequently asked questions

Gift wrapping and packaging

If your order is a gift, please leave me a note when you place your order so that I can remove the packing receipt and wrap it in tissue paper. All keychains come in a plastic wrapping with a paper tag with a picture of a key and our logo, shipping in a padded envelope. Lunch bags and make up bags ship flat in a padded envelope.
