I make beautiful things that I want in my own home!

I think my shop started the same way most do. I wanted to make things for myself, and my family. I wanted them to reflect my personal style and taste. The feeling of using things daily that you made with your own two hands, is a truly rewarding one.

My grandmother taught me how to crochet and knit when I was about 6. She taught me a simple single stitch, and I went home with the supplies she gave me, and made a dress for my baby doll. My mother taught me to sew. She made all my clothes when I was little, and when I started my family, I wanted to make those memories and feelings for them. The gift of having something to use that someone made with their own time, patience, and love.

I work in a studio in my house, a special room all to myself. I have a lovely view, and beautiful north light, and it is my happy place. I am a one-woman show, which can be busy, but so rewarding! I fill my shop with the things that pop into my head, with inspiration from anywhere, but I also welcome custom orders too!
