Elizabeth ~ Textile Artisan, Passionate about Lace
Hi! I’m Elizabeth. I have a love of textiles and creating them with my own hands and a passion for lace. From the time I was six years old I’ve been adding to my skill set which includes crocheting, knitting, sewing, embroidery, tatting, spinning and weaving. I am motivated by a need to create pretty things for my family, myself, and my home and really enjoy helping you do the same.
I look at the world around me and become discouraged at the disposable mentality that permeates our culture. I’m an old fashioned girl who believes in the adage, “Use it up, wear it out…” Through this blog and our products my focus is to help you learn how to apply that adage for yourself without sacrificing style or aesthetics for you or your home.
Is the Farmhouse style not really you? Are you not sure how to use repurposed or upcycled goods in your home and maintain your modern glam, contemporary, or art deco style? We’ve got you covered! Repurposed and upcycled can fit with any style and we’ll show you how.
Stretch ~ Gifted Weaver
Stretch is my eldest son. He is mentally impaired but has a wonderful ability to create lovely things on the loom. He showed an interest in weaving when he was about 13, (you can read the story of how that happened in this blog post), and from the very beginning his color choices and talent for this ages old textile art had us all amazed. Not every project turns out perfect, especially if he’s having a bad day, but the addition of product lines like the purses, bags, and pouches has allowed even these weavings to be made into lovely and useful items. Being able to weave has brought great joy and purpose to the life of this young man, and as his mother, I”m more than thrilled that he has a positive focus in life, and the fact that it can be a money maker is a great bonus!
