We are a collection of women who all have one thing in common- the love of sewing and creativity! Today's world is alll about mass production, but there is always a need for unique and beautiful items that you won't see on anyone else. We saw a need for vintage style clothing and accessories for children and adults but made from modern materials for wearability and function. If you've ever experienced finding a wonderful vintage dress that was too fragile to wear, you'll appreciate being able to find similar items here made of new materials- the best of both worlds!
Emily has a background in jewelry design and a BFA from the University of Kansas. Her interest in vintage styling shows up in her creative approaches to clothing, children's toys, aprons, and accessories. Emily's mom Dorothy makes some of our crocheted items too.
Faith used to teach 8th grade art with an MTA from the University of Tulsa. After receiving her Ed.D. from Oklahoma State, she is now is a college professor at Aurora University. Her speciality is historic reproduction clothing but she also enjoys, like Emily, upcycling garments and vintage textiles.
