About

We are a team of artisans who specialize in creating unique craft goods with traditional materials.

When I first started, I never thought about selling supplies. I designed hair pieces, created costumes and tore things apart in order to recreate them. Feather pad appliques were a design mainstay in our store for a year or more of the early going. The simplest designs were the favorites but requests started to come in for the same simplicity in a variety of different mediums, namely in feathers and veiling. I wasn't sure if I was ready to venture into such a broad spectrum of designs. More than that, I was more excited about creating then spending a lot of money and time finding a good source of supplies for crafting.

A veil to embellish a wedding, a feather earring, a bow for a headband, a boa for a party. It is almost a standard across America that there will be a some kind of embellishment for hair, costumes and earrings. You name it, someone is probably a designer for it. As a shop owner, customer feedback is really important because it often leads to a recipe for success. You could sum it up in a text message:

Customers request it.
Design it.
Make it.

At the onset, the idea is simple. But it's not easy, because making an accessory for someone's wedding takes guts. Making an accessory for someone's graduation also takes guts. If you mess up, you messed up someone's special event on a piece that cost a lot of time and money. A piece that somebody took care to find and plan to incorporate into their life. That makes you a jerk, especially in my shop. Yet when you get it right, it's magic. Magic to make and magic to wear. Yet there is a lot of stress involved, especially in sourcing a reliable craft shop that has already done the legwork with sorting and ensuring a consistent quality in supplies.

Around 2001, I began to create costumes and wedding dresses. These lavish and intricate clothing required a wide variety of materials and crafts not available at the local JoAnns or Michaels. The more costumes I created, the more materials I ended up having to buy. This initial frustration with sourcing led my husband and I to set up our own supply shop. We understand how important supplies are and the frustration of spending good money on bad supplies.

The aim of this shop flowed from the motivation to create a simple, quality specific shop that allows the artisan or crafter to have control over.
