More goodies to come!! Please stop by again soon!

Surrounded by woods, stone walls, mountain views in mid-coast Maine--with the ocean close-by-- I live on a small farm with a wonderfully supportive husband, 4 great dogs, and a small flock of sheep. Spring and summer are times for collecting flowers and plants for dyeing, spinning outside, working in the veg garden, vending at local farmer's markets and shows. It is a joy to live here.
I have had a lifelong interest in textiles, clothing design, textile history, and all types of needlework and needlework tools. For years, I have scoured local thrift shops and fa bric shops for quality wool, luxury fibers,new and vintage cotton and linen fabrics to re-fashion into one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories for adults and children. .
I use the fleece from our own sheep in my hand-spun, hand-dyed yarns, dolls and needlefelting. I also use wonderful local fleeces. Dyeing is done responsibly with natural or commercial dyes.
I also have a book addiction and love old things---have included the irresistable and the overflow in my shop too.
Smoke-free, cat-less studio and home.
