"My items are created from vintage fabric that is no longer available; colorful old metal zippers and antique handmade quilts that are one of a kind."

Combining all of her favorite things, Kathi takes old forgotten vintage quilts, and transforms 'em into unforgettable pillows. She's been a fan of all things vintage and antique for years and, well, she used to co-own a fabric shop for many years. So it's safe to say she knows what she's doing. Kathi starts by carefully handwashing vintage textiles, hanging them to dry in the fresh air and sunshine before cutting them up to size and sewing it all up. The vintage textiles she finds are often on their way out, but with a deft needle and a keen eye for design, Kathi ushers them right back in.
