My love of sewing led our family into a transition back to a more traditional (homestead-y) way of life. We’re in the city, but we firmly believe the motto “do what you can with what you have where you are.” Added to the mix we homeschool and I am forever trying to find the balance between being a stay-at-home and work-at-home mom (if you’ve discovered the secret, please share)! I have always loved to create and started selling my creations online in 2004 after running out of people to gift my items to. I started selling at the Mankato Farmer’s Market in 2007 with eight products to offer. I currently sell over 30 different sewn and handmade products, specializing in items for your kitchen, purse and baby. You will find my daughter selling alongside me at the Market most Saturdays, as well. She has been selling at the Market since 2010 and currently sells five different products, including her famous bracelets. All of our products are handmade by us in Mankato, Minnesota. We try to add a few new products each year, so stop by to see what’s new this year!
