Do any of these situations sound familiar to you?
You are making careful choices about how you spend your money. You are tired of buying things that break after a few uses or don’t function they way you want them to. You are willing to spend a little more if it means your purchase will last.
You have been going through your home clearing out the things you no longer use, have never used, or simply don’t like. As you move forward, you want to buy things you really like and will use.
A friend’s birthday is just around the corner and you want it to get her something special that will let her know how much the friendship means to you. And your very next thought is how hard it can be to find just the right thing.
You are looking for a gift for someone when something catches your attention and you think, “Wow, I’d like to have that.” First you wonder if it’s really okay to buy this for yourself and then you remember how much joy you experience when using things you love.
You are staying with friends and you want to give a gift that will show your appreciation for their hospitality. Of course, you’d like it to be useful and not just something that takes up space so they don’t have to worry about what to do with it.
Your sister is hosting Thanksgiving and you want to find a way to express your deep love for her. She’s asked you to bring your special vegetable pie, and this year that doesn’t feel like enough.
I bought one of your towels as a gift for my mother, but then I decided to keep it for myself. I have been using it – I haven’t enclosed it in glass yet! – and I have noticed that my standard towel has disappeared. I recommend your towels to those who are looking for something beautiful, something of quality. I’ve been wanting to take better care of myself and having things around me that speak of quality is part of taking better care of myself.

My handwoven originals are enjoyed by women and men who:
- Value quality handmade items.
- Want to bring a sense of beauty and luxury to their every day.
- Want their gifts to be practical and unique.
- Appreciate functional art.
- Prefer to buy from artisans and small, family owned businesses.
Still wondering if my handwoven originals are what you are looking for? Read about the importance of factoring beauty into your shopping choices.
I love shopping at the Farmer’s Market and supporting the local “hand made” artisans. When I saw your hand woven pieces I had to check them out. I was very impressed with the color combinations and intricate patterns. I purchased a few dish cloths for myself and as Christmas presents. I love having them hanging in the kitchen in noticeable places, they add to the aesthetic of the space and are very durable and usable as everyday towels. Since then I’ve purchased an entire set of matched napkins and love the beauty they add to the table setting. Thank you very much for all the love and care you weave into each piece!
