It's Spooky Season!
It's spooky season and we are hard at work creating a new Halloween Collection that will be getting posted in small increments over the next few weeks. Some items will only be available locally due to their difficulty with shipping, which will be noted on the listings as they are posted. More info on the holiday shipping season will be forthcoming.

Check out my dedicated work space!
Talk about an upgrade! This time last year I was working off a tiny desk in a little room at the bottom of the basement stairs in my mom’s house and now I have an actual studio!
I’m still getting used to having space to work but it’s been so nice not feeling like I’m in the way or inconveniencing anyone else or keeping anyone awake at night with my habitual 3 AM sewing marathons!
I love being able to manage orders from one end of my desk and all I have to do is spin my chair around to access my sewing machine on the other end of my desk!
I positively adore having natural lighting for most of the day AND I have overhead lighting instead of working from a bunch of lamps like I had been!
I can’t wait to put some shelves up on the wall and I’ve been looking for artwork to put on the walls too since for the first time in my adult life, I live somewhere where I can poke holes in the wall and hang stuff!
I’m also loving being able to have green space, my plants aren’t pictured but they’re loving being in the windows and getting that bright morning light too! My aloe even made a baby!
I used to teach sewing classes and I’m debating whether to open my space up and offer private lessons again.
I want to get my dress form out of storage and start making some clothes again too, now that I have the space for it.
I had my first event since February of 2020 a few weeks ago and it went okay, I at least made back my hotel and vendor fee costs.
Providing we don’t have another lockdown, I will be headed to York, PA on September 18 for the Enchanted Fairy Festival. It’s my first time in Pennsylvania and I hope people are as eager to buy up there as they have been down here.
I will be making face masks again, with the Delta variant, I feel it’s only a matter of time before the mask mandates are put back into place and a lot of people are opting into wearing masks again voluntarily.
