About

Appreciating textiles from the past - giving them new life so they can be enjoyed today.

Enjoy finding hand/needle work that has been "orphaned" and giving it new life so it can be used and enjoyed today. Love to repurpose, reuse, reclaim.
Started sewing in grade school by making doll clothes out of the leftovers from my Mom's sewing projects, then sewing my own clothes in high school, and studying textiles and clothing in college.
Always seem to have more ideas than time!
Hope you enjoy my "musings" from the prairie.

Since the items in this shop are made with vintage textiles and needlework, they have been around awhile and can show their age which adds character to the piece. I use only pieces that will withstand use and wear. I launder most pieces before using to see how sturdy they are.
I am not responsible for improper laundering after you receive the item.
If you feel the need to return an item you are not satisfied with, you are responsible for return shipping and proper repacking for it to arrive safely.
