It’s been a very long time since I last had the coin purses and tote bags in full production. I absolutely love sewing, but over the past few years have had troubles finding the time to just sit down and sew enough to not sell out every weekend. The time has now come!!!
A few weeks ago I gave you all a sneak peak on the Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages of what you can expect. I’m very excited to have these for you again and you can expect the coin purses to be going online for the March 19th update and the totes should follow right behind.
As always all of the fabric I have designed and it is all silk screened by hand and sewn right here in our studio. Keeping as much of the production in house as you know is very important to me.
Hope you love them. ~n
I am super excited about this spring coming up with a bunch of new designs coming March 18th and brand new products coming May 18th as well. Can’t wait to get these shows started!!!

Many of you have come to love the wood print product line which started almost 3 years ago now as a regular item, but everyone always asks me how they are done. All I can say is a lot of time and love is poured into each and every single one of them. Simple as that. These a really are handmade down to the very cutting of the wood.
I normally try to prepare all the wood for screening when it is nice and I can work outside. But mother nature didn’t play so nice this September so I was outdoors on very cold day cutting and sanding. I made the mistake of cutting indoor one day to avoid the cold, but lets just say I made a rather large mess and it was back outdoors for me.
After they are all cut and sanded a stain is hand mixed to get the correct colour and applied to each one. This is when it gets fun because you get to see all the amazing wood grains come out of each piece starting the transition into each one being one of a kind. They spend hours drying and then it is onto a nice gloss layer of varnish to get them ready for screening. This is basically when I catch up on hours of TV shows and movies I’ve missed after working over the summer.
Once each piece of wood is completed it is onto what I do best … silk screening everything by hand!!!
This season a larger batch was done so I hope everyone who has been waiting for one will be able to snatch them up. We’ve been sold out of many since the beginning of August and everything should be restocked online and at the shows in the next few weeks including all our Christmas Shows.
