shop talk

After much thought and consideration I have finally decided to put my etsy shop on hold. Etsy is still a wonderful place to look for and find amazing hand crafted goods, but the market has grown too big for my preference. So from now on my work will be sold exclusively in my big cartel store. The big cartel venue feels more intimate and I love the way I am able to customize the look and feel of the store front.

The store offers many of the same items previously found on etsy, but the focus will be on one-of-a-kind naturally dyed and eco printed pieces. Popular items like kitchen towels and sachets are still listed, and I am adding a line of hand printed and hand bound books, as well as eco printed and leaf printed  pillow cases. Smaller art quilts and textile collages are also offered. My larger wall pieces are featured on my website, and they are also on display in my studio at Chroma Projects should you be visiting Charlottesville. 

Since I first started this creative business, I have approached even the smallest projects or objects as pieces of art. Sachets and large art quilts alike are all created with the uttermost consideration, care, and quality, and somehow I also hope they reflect the joy I feel making them. I invite you to skip over to the store to browse and discover.


  1. I understand and applaud your decision. Wish I had the courage to do this - it's in my mind but I'd have to wait until next year. Also, LOVE your that a Big Cartel platform? I'm blown away as it looks like a VERY professional Wordpress shop. Kudos.

  2. I applaud your decision too. I closed my Etsy shop a few months ago and have been considering Big Cartel as the best alternative. Never missed Etsy, it has become a crazy market place.

    Hopping over to your new shop right away. Lots of luck with it! (Not that you need it :)

  3. Your work is stunning! A fellow blogger just referred me here.

    I just subscribed to your posts.


I always love to hear from you! I read every word and cherish every thought, even if I am not always able to reply back. Thank you for visiting.
