Announcement   Welcome to my shop!

Thank you for stopping by! You may have noticed that I don't have much for sale right now besides my sewing tutorials which teach you how to reconstruct your own clothes! I am currently teaching at various museums and schools as well as promoting my new book, Girl Reconstructed: Crafting a Creative Business as a Special Needs Mom, available on Amazon. Please bear with me as I slowly re-think and re-stock the shop. I continue to be interested in empowering others through culture, art, and community and I am currently figuring out how best to do this through my entrepreneurial endeavors. Please feel free to convo me if you have any questions.

You can also catch me on my blog, www.nellescalante.com, where I write about my garment refashions, art making musings, and creative entrepreneurship, sometimes through the lens of a special needs mom.

About

People inspire me. I hope my products and life inspire you too.

I started my shop in 2008 after my youngest son was diagnosed with autism. It was a difficult time and I needed to be inspired. I turned to cultural icons from the past, flawed people who struggled and got through their tough circumstances; artists, revolutionaries, activists, poets, and singers. My icons weren't perfect but who is? They prevailed through their art and passion and gave me hope that I would too.

All of my shirts and tote bags are hand screen printed and, sometimes, slightly reconstructed combining my passion for sewing and printing. I also make aprons and cuffs from recycled materials, and have recently added sewing tutorials.

When I'm not sewing and printing, you can find me in a museum facilitating art programs for children and adults.
