About

Sewing, and sewing, and sewing

Welcome to my happy shop, I'm glad you stopped by. I am a lifelong geek and internet addict who just fell in love with Etsy when I joined in 2008. I loved finding unique gifts for my friends! In 2010 we bought a house and for the first time ever I had a craft room of my very own, and was sewing a lot. So much, in fact, that my family was overloaded with little zipper bags and pajama pants and nobody else in my life needed another badge lanyard. So I figured heck, all these people sell stuff on Etsy, why not open my own shop to fund my crafting/Etsy buying habits?

I set a 2011 new years resolution of getting some stuff listed by Christmas. I also discovered trade teams where I could combine my buying love and offloading needs all at once... how glorious! There is a wonderful community here and I am happy to be a part of it.

In 2012 I started falling behind on my sewing and started to have some items sewn by the Wichita Women's Initiative (www.wichitawin.org) - a wonderful local organization that provides support for women transitioning out of poverty or abusive situations. Items sewn by WIN are noted in the listing. I provided training, patterns and all supplies and they have been graciously helping out with the sewing.

I've spent most of my life in Kansas. It's my home and I love it. I have always had progressive values and some parts of my shop may reflect that. I boycotted Hobby Lobby before boycotting Hobby Lobby was cool.

I have a busy, crazy life but I love helping other people with their crafts and love assisting my fellow Etsians so please contact me if you have any questions!
