Announcement   The shop's focus is upcycled pure cashmere, quality tapestry and 100% linen. The cashmere is made into scarves, leg warmers, fingerless mittens and throw blankets. The items are designed to be Fun as well as Functional. Cashmere is great for warmth while being light weight. I generally do not shrink down my cashmere. I will be specific about it if I have.

The pure linen is made into scarves, hankies, finger towels and napkins.

Tapestry tote bags are why I opened my Etsy shop. The tapestry totes are designed to be used in place of paper and plastic bags wherever you shop; grocery, department and specialty shops. The totes are made of quality tapestry and upholstery fabrics to last for years with daily use. Feel free to fill them up with lots of groceries, books, or baby items. Many people say that they are too elegant to use for groceries so use them as pocketbooks.

The price of each item is determined by the cost, quality and quantity of fabric used to make it.

My mother taught me how to sew for my first Barbie Doll in 1959. By 8th grade I was making my own clothes and continued to do this for many years. It was always nice to have clothes that were unique. Over the years colleagues and friends asked me to alter prom dresses and brides' maid dresses. All worked out satisfactorily, which was always a tremendous relief for me.

I do not pretend to be a perfect seamstress and when I point out that there may be crooked stitching or puckers, people say that I am overly critical of my work.

All of the handmade items are made in my smoke free home and stored in closed containers with cloves before and after being worked on.

Hopefully you will enjoy your purchase for years to come. Please stop in from time to time to see if that perfect item is available.
