Wouldn't it be fun to have an online shop..
...While watching Oprah one day in 2009, I heard her mention the Etsy website was a great place for artists and craftspeople to sell their work. So after years of doing craft shows, I decided to set up an Etsy shop. Turns out, it is fun.
Since then, I have designed different styles of jewelry travel case, makeup bags, large zipper bags, tote bags and tea wallets. I'm always dreaming up something new, drawing out my patterns on whatever piece of paper is closest to me, so you never know what I will come up with next.
My daughter Sue is my faithful helper at the shows. We think alike and enjoy the experience of doing shows. A list of Maine craft shows where I have a booth is on my website (link below)

Owner, Maker, Designer, Photography, Shipping
I grew up sewing. My mother was a professional dressmaker, so it was only natural that I'd sit on the floor with the little scraps of fabric making clothes for my dolls. And it grew from there.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Payment for custom orders is required before work begins. Items that are made to specific dimensions, with specific fabrics, with or without embroidery, are custom orders.
I usually ship my ready-made items next day (unless the order comes in Friday night, Saturday, or a Holiday). But generally within 2 business days.
The shipping time on custom orders varies. I usually have the order completed within a week and then ship. Shipping time can vary depending on time of year and how busy the USPS is. But most packages arrive to US destinations in 2 to 5 business days.
Your package will have a USPS tracking/delivery confirmation number. You can use this number to check on the location of your package. You can find the number in your shipping notification email from etsy, or on your copy of your order receipt found in your etsy account under purchases.
Marked As Gift
If you check the 'marked as gift' box when checking out, it means that the packing slip will show no pricing information. It will not be gift wrapped as I do not offer that option.
