It’s Christmas Gift Guide Giveaway night #3 here on FOLKblog and we have yet another great gift idea for you. The PERFECT hostess gift!
“Vintage fabrics have been a passion of mine for many years. It started when my grandmother passed away 30 years ago and we discovered stacks of linens that she had hand-embroidered. It was love at first sight. I can’t resist a tattered pillowcase or grain sack with holes. To me they are things of beauty. By working with vintage fabrics, I can offer an American made product that adds character and interest to any decor.
I am the author of the blog On Sutton Place and my Etsy shop was the natural next step. I began sewing at the age of 10 and never loved it more than I do now. I recently quit my day job in order to devote more time to Sutton Place Designs. I have expanded my shop hoping to fulfill my dream of making a legitimate income doing something I love.
I take pride in offering items that are hand made by me, one at a time. I live in the heart of the Midwest and production takes place out of a workroom in my home. As I mark the end of my first year as an Etsy shop owner, I can honestly say that my business is now the thing in my life that makes me feel like I can do anything. No boundaries. Just dreams.” – Ann Drake
