Hi there! I’m Callie and this is where I blog about the many, many things I love to make. I like to test the creative waters in areas such as re-finishing furniture, photography, painting and drawing, writing… but my primary focus has always been sewing.  I make many pieces from start to finish but also re-make existing items with either alteration or surface design. You can find many of the things I create here, or here for purchase. :)

I hold an MA in Fashion from Kent State University, and a BA in Fashion Merchandising & Marketing from the University of Akron, both located in Northeast Ohio.

I am a native Clevelander, and a proud one at that. I believe nature can cure many ails, that the right book has the power to change your life, and that we’re all given our talents so we can share them with the world. I’m a sucker for quotes and chocolate, and when I’m not making something, you can probably find me watching a classic movie.

I hope you enjoy the blog and if you would like to chat more, or are interested in collaborating, please contact me via email or social media at:
