About

Sue Aucoin and Rhonda Potteet, Out of the Thistle® Co-Founders, Co-Creators

Second- and third-generation, self-taught artists creating heirloom-quality items. Sue and her mother began this venture over three decades ago, specializing in fiber. Since then, they have passed on their knowledge to Sue’s four daughters. Her daughter, Rhonda Potteet, has found her spot carrying on the business venture. For many years now, their items have been mainly crocheted or knitted from wool, felted (or shrunken), and hand dyed. They aim to endorse the quality of their products, focusing on the heirloom beauty and whimsy that each item is created with. The durability and detail of their handmade dolls, toys, wearables, and collectibles is unmatched. Though they began this business venture as the Thread Bears®Company, they have grown to become Out of the Thistle®, opening more opportunity for a variety beyond basic bears.
