Inspiring a more eco-friendly world through reconstructed, reinvented fashion created with Upcycled fabrics!
One of my first customers, Lynda has had me redesign a whole wardrobe full of gorgeous one of a kind pieces!
Erin bought the skirt first, then asked me to create a matching top! It was even better than I could have imagined seeing them worn together!
Jerry has bought several designs off me, and shares all of my posts because she wants to show off my new creations!
In 2011 I opened an Etsy shop, my first online shop experience. I sold handbags, embroidered towels, aprons, and scrub tops. I didn’t start dabbling in Upcycled designs till 2015.
October of 2017 I decided to try my hand at an outdoor vendor event called Applefest in Franklin, Pa. My customers gave me so much encouragement! For the first time since I began sewing, I truly felt like it was something I could actually succeed at.
In June of 2018, I took the plunge and finally turned my passion into a full time business. I took a course in business management & opened up a brick and mortar store! The store had been my dream, and I thought I was finally living it. Unfortunately, overhead costs through COVID closures were more than I could bear, not to mention the fact that managing the store took away so much of my creative sewing time!
In late 2020, I closed the store and moved to Charleston, SC so that I could attend outdoor events all year round while still finding time to sew!
You can find me at the Charleston City Market & at craft shows in various cities. Follow my FB or IG to find out for sure where I’ll be!
I love being able to make clothing that inspires happiness. I take pride in being able to save material from being thrown in a landfill while doing it!
