About Us

Artisan skills belonging to the past are seldom preserved in our fast-paced modern world, but this has only created a more passionate desire for rare handmade and one-of-a-kind gifts. Globalization has brought us new materials and new markets, so the future of those patient enough to teach and to learn how to craft have an opportunity to take it to the next level. We hope to inspire you to appreciate handmade items and honor our timeless traditions by purchasing valuable keepsakes to pass on to your kin.

Meet the family:

Grandma Pat is an experienced quilter and seamstress who has dabbled in many mediums over the years, but has finally decided that fabric best suits her talents. She is very particular when coordinating colors, textures, and patterns. Her precision is impeccable. Passing keepsakes from one generation to another has always been a cherished privilege to her--both for the giver and the recipient.

GingerYoungest Daughter Ginger is an accomplished seamstress and quilter in her own right, but her love of horses has given birth to skillful leatherwork. This has found expression in both tack and wearables. She also loves to knit. She can always be counted on for superior construction and fine materials. Utility is always a key design element in her work.

etsy,artist,jewelry designerGranddaughter Mesa Lee has dabbled in simple sewing projects and picked up the knack for beaded applique from a beloved auntie. Her tastes tend to run toward the experimental, and she tends to improvise with surprising results. Her construction tends to be centered on design and durability.  She loves vintage objects.  Mesa Lee is also our webmaster.  In 2018, she took up nail art and it is her new passion!  She has developed a line of Limited Edition nail art stamping plates and regularly hunts for vintage nail polish.

Tiffany is Mesa Lee's sister-in-law.  She is an avid crafter, scrapbook enthusiast, and indie nail polish collector!  She crochets beautifully and we are happy to include her practical creations such as handmade tawashis (bath poufs and kitchen scrubbies)!
