I’m Maryland native Lynn Richard. Since retiring as a horticulturist for the state of Maryland, I am enjoying more time for sewing and crafting! I like to make a variety of items that reflect my love of nature especially for plants and flowers. One of my fondest, inspiring sewing memories is from my Mother’s and Aunt’s southern quilting circle in rural Alabama. As a child I enjoyed this special quality time, conversation, meeting new friends, and learning how to hand quilt. We hung many quilts on a clothes line to admire, air and display, plus had fun adventures traveling to collect fabric scraps discarded from the only fabric shop in Winfield. These cherished memories instilled in me an appreciation for handmade artistry, vintage and antiquity.
Threads of Love
My name is Linette Sanjur. I make handmade accessories including bags, purses, and more. I reside in Grain Valley, MO with my husband. I have a son in graduate school and a daughter that just started college. I always made different crafts but always wanted to learn how to sew. One day I decided I was going to teach my self how to sew and I did. Now I am a quilter and love to make bags. As a little girl in Puerto Rico, I knew my great grandmother and an aunt were seamstresses. Knowing that it gave me an inspiration to try it after my kids got older. I love making handmade items because every item is unique and made with love.
I create experiences for people in my painting workshops. In my workshops people learn, step by step, how to create a painting whether that be on canvas, a door sign, or more. I am passionate about meeting new people and bringing the community together, to create art.
Pretty Little Poison Coffee Co.
I'm Erika Falls, a wife, mom, tattoo enthusiast, and caffeine addict from a small country community. Growing up, my grandmothers shared their cooking secrets, but flavoring beverages was unexplored territory. As I got older, I became fascinated with the idea and taught myself to make syrups. With a passion for unique flavors, I founded Pretty Little Poison Coffee Co. I've carefully crafted a range of delicious products, drawing inspiration from my upbringing and my love for experimenting with flavors. Excited for you to try our creations! Cheers!
