SPRING 2012 Vendor Feature: Daddy’s Button Shirt

Daddy’s Button Shirt

After being an elementary school media specialist for 35 years, I am enjoying retirement and working on projects that I always wanted to make. I focus on reusing items such as men’s shirts and wool sweaters, making them into bags, scarves, stuffed animals and children’s clothing. My husband works on a tugboat and our 2 children are grown, so it is usually just the dog and me at home. I enjoy learning new techniques and staying busy with my projects. I can’t wait for the show since this is my first time as a vendor!

Besides crafting, what other things do you like to do? I read at least a book a week.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Play the piano or banjo.

If you had to only work on one project for the next year, what would it be? Probably a major knitting project like an afghan made with gorgeous koigu yarn.

What’s something you’ve done that you think no other vendor has done? Visited Japan for 3 weeks on a Japanese Fulbright Memorial Fund educational scholarship.

  1. Will you be at the December show in Winter Garden? I purchased a tote bag as seen in your first photo and would like to buy another.
