Christmas splurge

A few ideas for those who received money and just don't know what to do with it!  Or for anyone who likes to treat themselves to something special.

Atenti, sophisticated fabrics, smart design and all made right here in America.

Glass laying tools are a luxury but there's no substitute when needing to lay threads in a large area such as a background.  Glass tools are lighter in weight than steel, warm to the touch and best of all no sharp points to snag.  I hang mine around my neck with a silk ribbon so no chance of it falling.  Once you use one, you'll never look back.

  1. what a great shop! I wish that we had you in our town. Do you carry any Charley Harper canvases?

    1. After having the Charley trunk show last year I have to admit he fell off my radar screen. He was a great icon of the modernist era. Are there any your interested in? Nothing more enjoyable than to browse through his offerings and select some for the shop.
