This needs to be updated ;) Story of my Renewed Spirit thru Jesus coming soon! ~
I'm Elizabeth the designer and Self-taught Seamstress and Artist of everything you find on these pages. I have been sewing for about 5 years now and have gone thru many changes in that time. I have discovered my talent in the one-of-a-kind pieces I create, and I am so grateful to those who have supported me.
My husband and I have been "going green" for
many years now and we strive to grow and become more conscious
as the years go on. I have been fortunate enough thru the
support of all of you to now continue that same green movement
and growth of consciousness into my business. I will be
using fabrics that are eco friendly as well as compassionate.
I am choosing to use sustainable fabrics such as Hemps & Certified organic
cottons as well as Fair trade cotton fabrics of all artistic
designs from several different countries including some made
right here in the USA. I also recently started supporting independent fabric artists who do their own screen printing. I love to support other artists. I will also be using second hand
fabrics (vintage, recycled, or just thrift store finds) on
occasion, in my pieces. I
just want to add a quick note that I still have a small fabric
supply that I had bought in the past that might not be fair
trade ~I will be using these fabrics up in some pieces but
I promise that all new fabrics that are purchased will fall
under one of the categories above.
Fair Trade is an amazing movement and I am happy to be supporting the movement in the fabrics I will be incorporating into my wearable art. Fair Trade pays artisans fair wages and helps create sustainable communities in impoverished areas. I have read that over 90% of the clothing coming into the US is made in sweatshops. This is so sad, but we have a voice. By buying fair trade, second hand, made in the USA, and by stopping our support of companies that use sweatshops we can make a difference. For more information on Fair trade please check out www.fairtradefederation.org ( FAQs ).
All of my items are of the highest quality and are built to be lived in, loved, and to last. I do all of the dying of my hemp and organic fabrics myself and put much time and energy into all the details of each unique piece. I hope that my clothing brings you joy and security in knowing that you have helped support a growing movement of positive change for the environment and humanity.
I would like to say a special thanks to my brother-in-law Tony for creating this amazing website for me! And of course to all my friends, family, and customers who have helped me in more ways that I can explain. I am so grateful. Thank you so much!
Much love and God Bless ~
