Kate Kilgus, New Hampshire Artisan
Hi! I'm Kate Kilgus. I am a handweaver by profession and began my tenure with Etsy to sell my handwoven items.
My handwoven housewares and fine woven wearable accessories can be found throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Africa. As a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen, my work is available through the League's Fine Craft Gallery shops.
Many of my earliest Etsy clients were brides-to-be. About five years ago, a bride contacted me about my handwoven ivory lace flowergirl cone (check out the photograph above); she asked if I could "come up with something more rustic." After much tinkering with paper patterns, time at the sewing machine, and experimenting with various grades of fabric, I created my first burlap pew cone.
The sewing patterns for my burlap pew cones have been purchased by brides (and a small number of grooms) around the world since 2010. My clients have the satisfaction of crafting something pretty, unique, and useful for their celebrations. In addition to this, they experience the distinct pleasure of having beautiful decorations at their weddings without breaking the bank.
I am proud to be an independent artisan in New England and remain committed to honoring the traditions of the craftsmen who came before me. Thank you for supporting fine American craft.
Be well, friends.
