Handmade Items from Repurposed Fabrics

I hate to send anything to the landfill that is still usable. As a quilter this means I have quite a lot of fabrics bits around. Living in Manhattan I didn't have a lot of spare storage space. This shop was born out my desire to make things from leftover fabrics. Most everything in the shop is made from leftovers. There are scraps from quilting projects, old clothes, orphaned fabrics given to me by friends, fabrics I bought for a project and never used.

Now that I live in NJ, I have the luxury of having an entire sewing room. Having more space (and the space to leave my machines set up all the time) means I am able to work on larger projects. You'll see my shop has expanded from its original small items like sandwich bags and placemats to quilts and hangings.

Welcome to TheGreenCat! I have been quilting for over 30 years. I don't like to waste anything so this shop is set up as a place for me to sell items I craft from fabric and other items left over from my projects. Thanks for stopping by!
