How the shop began

My Etsy shop originally began when I acquired an orphan lamb and found myself with a lot of wool that I was able to spin, felt, crochet and weave into an assortment of usable item. Several years have passed since I first opened the store and many things have changed.

As far back as my teen years I have always had an interest in sewing and textile artistry. I have spent a number of years doing customized sewing for others as well as furniture upholstery and slip covers from my home as well as in an established upholstery shop and customized athletic apparel store. The love for these skills has been something that has always stayed with me and branched out in many different avenues. I still continue to make useful and decorative items from the wool and angora that my sheep and bunnies produce, something new that I was able to take on recently was writing a lyrical children's book about the many different uses of wool in our daily lives. My book is called Thank You For Your Service, Sheep! It can be bought on amazon, Barnes and Nobel, as well as here in my Etsy store.

My love for sewing is actually what lead me to using a computer and learning to love technology and the many different way it has improved and changed our everyday lives.
Most recently I have renovated a building that my father once used to make many beautiful wooden heirlooms. I have slowly turning it into a place where people of all ages can come and take a class, teach a class, socialize and exchange positive ideas and skills. Hopefully with each day our project grows and helps to teach others to experience, express, share and find joy in each day.

I hope you will also follow my blog
