Who doesn’t like to cuddle up with a nice, warm blanket? You know you do! From infants to great-grandparents, a beautiful quilt is not only warm, it is comfortable, beautiful, and sentimental. It is as much of a decor piece as a functional piece, that can be gifted for a baby shower, wedding or anniversary gift, birthday gift, Mother’s Day…the options are endless.
Wendy has been sewing for nearly 20 years. She was introduced to rag quilts in 2006, and fell in love! After some experimentation, she realized cotton fabrics fray beautifully, and that became her medium of choice. All of her rag quilts are reversible. One side is finished, and the other side has exposed seams that are snipped and frayed to create a shabby chic look. All quilts are made using designer 100% cotton fabrics. Each square is sewn with a lightweight, natural cotton batting in the middle. Every quilt is washed once to start the ragging process. They can be machine washed in cold water and machine dried. The more they are washed and dried, the raggier and softer they will become.
Large/throw-size quilts measure about 46”x65”. These can be displayed at the end of a bed or over a couch. They are also the perfect size for a picnic. These unique quilts are sure to be a hit when guests are over! Medium/kid-size quilts measure about 38”x46”. These are a mini-throw that a boy or girl will enjoy in his / her room. They can be used nicely as a lap blanket or in the stroller for snuggling on the go! Small/baby-size quilts measure about 33”x38”. These quilts are ideal for our tiny loved ones. They are small enough to fit in a diaper bag or drape it over a crib for display. Babies will love the edges which can promote the development of fine motor skills!

Versatility. In a jewelry line it’s achieved when an artisan addresses the nuances in her clients’ needs, while staying true to her brand’s individual style. Catherine does this by combining different color palettes, and incorporating a variety of materials. She uses semi-precious stones, pewter, sterling silver, and fabric when crafting her line of necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, and headbands.

Us mothers may remember bringing our newborns home from the hospital, in step to the tune of Grandma (or Great-Grandma) telling us to always keep the baby’s head covered! Well, I agreed with that philosophy (except in the summer when it was sweltering outside). To that end, knit hats are a must! They offer warmth, comfort, style, and the knowledge that nothing harmful goes into their production…no chemicals or agents that can be absorbed into a fragile newborn’s delicate skin. Elaine’s product offering includes: baby hats, beanies, ruffle hats, stocking caps, and pom-pom hats, for ages birth – 2 years. She chooses bright, vibrant yarns, making her products stand out from the traditional baby blue and baby pink hues. They are all hand-knit from tweed, acrylic, or 80% acrylic / 20% wool blends, and are available in several color / stripe combinations. These are a perfect addition to any baby offering, appealing to shoppers for new baby gifts, baby showers, or baby’s birthday.
