Welcome to my site!
Here you will find unique one-of-a-kind needlework accessories that I create. I have started with my strawberry emeries and will add other items as I design them.
My strawberry emeries are one-of-a-kind. I use only the highest quality fabric, threads, ribbon, beads and lace that I can find. I've recently added some vintage lace and ribbons to my collection to make some of my girls even more unique.
My creativity comes to fruition in my strawberry emeries, tatting, crazy quilting and samplers. My ideas stem from nature, antiques and necessity.
Lecture topics include: Victorian Era Needlework, the History of Samplers, Antique Sewing Tools, The History of Lace, Ohio Samplers and Quaker Samplers to name a few.
I specialize in the wide variety of stitches used in Samplers both new and vintage, Tatting, Crochet, Bargello, Needle laces including Drawn and Pulled Thread and Hardanger, Reticella, Crewel Embroidery, Crazy Quilting, and Surface Embroidery.
"The berries got here safe and sound. And I love, love, love my berry! Love the color, love the leaves, love the red berries, love the gingham ribbon (perfect touch!) Just love the whole thing. Ditto for the pink berry!!"

- My strawberry emeries are unique and one of a kind. I use only the highest quality fabric, threads, ribbon, beads and lace. Some of them will look antique and others will look fresh and new. Most are made of hand dyed velvet but I do have some vintage fabrics and brocades that will be used to make some beauties as well. I make each with love and I have a wide variety of colors to choose from. Put an order in for one or more today. Make sure you order early to receive them for a special day such as a birthday, Mother's Day, Easter or Christmas. The ones pictured are $25. I recently got some vintage ribbons and lace, and strawberries made with vintage materials will be even more unique and priced accordingly.
- I have an art background and my desire to create is fueled by this. I love designing smalls and needlework accessories. I have many unique items in the development stage and get my ideas from nature, antiques and necessity. My creativity has most recently come to fruition in my strawberry emeries. I have enjoyed taking them to a new level and have sold them to needlework enthusiasts across the US, Canada and Italy.
