Spring is a ways off, but we are planning for spring shows and the outdoor markets. The two large local craft shows are March 4 and 18 (see my schedule), and I will be going back to the Ann Arbor Markets (Saturday and Sunday) in April. In the meantime, customers have been ordering by phone and coming to my house. Call me any time at (734)525-3549.
NOTE: I will be working on a project from January 17 to 22, and will not be answering the phone or taking any orders during that time. Leave a short message; I'll call you after January 22 when my schedule is clear.


New fabrics are added to the web site as soon as I have them in stock. Click on "FABRIC SAMPLES" and take a look at NEW FABRICS to see the latest additions.

I've been designing and making bags for over 40 years. My styles are simple and functional. What really makes the products is the wonderful fabrics I find. I think I have an eye for color, and I know what my customers like. I look at more than 10,000 fabrics a year, searching for unusual and beautiful fabrics that will work for me and that my customers will like. It's like a treasure hunt.
