About

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”  Mahatma Gandhi

Welcome! My name is Vanessa.

As a child I loved rummaging through my grandmother’s collection of fabric and notions. She was an avid seamstress, quilter, woodworker, crocheter, and all around craft artist. I loved creating pieces out of her stash of goodies.
I began sewing and embroidering as a girl and later learned to quilt and dye fabric.

I still love seeking out vintage treasures and making something new from old! I am a big fan of patchwork and a collector of vintage patterns and fabrics.

I enjoy gardening and creating herbal and natural products.   I love to sew, go thriftin’, spend time in the beautiful North Carolina mountains or planning my next beach get-away.

By day, I teach a Kindergarten/First grade combo class at a public elementary school.

I am  married with 4 children. (Ages 11-22)
