SewAmazin’ Featured Shop

SewAmazin' Featured Shop

SewAmazin’ Featured Shop of the month hear at the Handmade Gift Guide. You will find adorable custom Bandanas, Pet Neck Ruffles and Accessories for Pet Lovers in this shop!

SewAmazin is a small, home-based business, owned and operated by Donna Wolf, a long time Sewing Enthusiast and Westie dog owner. We specialize in custom-sized pet Bandanas and Neck Ruffles for dogs or cats. We also create  unique gifts and accessories for pet lovers.

Our bandana and ruffle sizes are unique! Size is based on your pet’s actual measurements, not on breed or weight ranges. Because dogs come in different shapes and sizes, the drop height and neck size can be selected for a perfect, custom fit. Some of our bandanas can also be personalized with your pet’s name in embroidery.

Every item we sell is carefully handmade in a smoke free, pet friendly environment. We are proud to support various Westie rescue organizations, our local no-kill shelter and our local food bank by donating part of the sale of each item in our shops.

You can find our full line of dog bandanas, pet scrunchie ruffles and more at our SewAmazin website.

 

Donna Wolf – Owner/Designer

I enjoy making personalized gifts and accessories for pets and pet lovers, especially Westies and other terriers.  I call myself a “Sewing & Embroidery Enthusiast” because I love sewing and all types of needle art.

Since I enjoy exploring a variety of sewing and embroidery techniques, my customized fabric creations are often one-of-a-kind or few-of-a-kind pieces. Custom orders always welcome! Some of my favorite projects are special requests!

We specialize in custom-sized Dog Bandanas and Pet Scrunchie Neck Ruffles for dogs or cats as well as unique Gifts and Accessories for Pet Lovers.

My fabric creations are often one-of-a-kind or few-of-a-kind pieces. Some of my favorite projects are special requests, so please contact me if you see something and would like it customized just for you. Most of the items you see in my shop can be made in your choice of fabrics and embroidery.

My partners are my two terriers: Keli is a West Highland Terrier and is our senior at 16+ years old; Penny is a Westie/Schnauzer mix called a Wauzer and she’s our rescue girl who joined our pack in 2008. I occasionally refer them affectionately as my ‘Pesties’; with the aid of lots of treats, they model most of our bandanas and neck ruffles.

Kat Davis – Owner/Designer

Designer, Kat Davis began creating jewelry in 2005, merging her interest in fine art with the tactile feel of gemstones, sterling silver and gold.

Jewelry created using sterling silver, 14k gold filled or solid gold.  Gemstones are hand picked by her for their interesting characteristics.  Each earring, necklace or bracelet is carefully hand crafted using traditional techniques.

At K Davis Studios you will find elegant handcrafted sterling silver, gold, copper, and gemstone jewelry. For earrings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets. You will find unique gemstone, crystal and pearl jewelry accented with gold, sterling silver and copper.

Kat, the one woman show is the artist that works behind the scenes in this shop. I design, make, forge, photograph, market and do everything involved in running my shop. Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Albert Schweitzer Step out in style today with a beautiful, handcrafted jewelry piece by Kat!

Her friends saw it and then they wanted one and this was the start of blanket sewing days.

Aunt Maymes Attic Featured Shop

Aunt Maymes Attic

Aunt Maymes Attic is the Featured Shop of the Month here at the On Fire for Handmade Gift Guide. You will find unique, one of a kind, creations that blend the Vintage Past with Modern Aspiration in this shop!

Aunt Mayme’s Attic where vintage linens find new life in modern and functional items. My Shop name came as a result of my desire to keep vintage embroidered linens out of the landfills.  Many items like this I found during the summers I spent as a child visiting maternal relatives, so many years ago. Aunt Mayme, (“May-me”) my oldest aunt, lived in an old farmhouse with a walk in attic.

This home contained several assorted pieces of furniture, glassware, and most especially trunks that held clothing and other personal items, such as photographs.I’ve always been a lover and sewer of vintage linens, ever since my Aunt Mayme let me play in her farmhouse trunk. When I saw them stashed away, I was saddened because they weren’t getting used. My shop is about bringing those linens out of our “trunks” and using them in modern and functional ways.

 

Beth Pierce – Owner/Designer

Hand embroidered vintage linens have been a love of mine ever since I was a child and rummaged through an old trunk found in my Aunt Mayme’s (“May-Mee”s) attic. While perusing the pillowcases, tea towels, and dresser scarves that my aunt, and possibly my deceased grandmother worked, I came to the conclusion that they would never be locked away if I had them.

Although my ability to hand embroider is long since gone, it’s my love of  vintage linens I want to share with you in Aunt Mayme’s Attic. Vintage linens are upcycled into modern and functional items. I bring the past to the present and allow the beauty of the handwork to shine through.

Nancy Anderson Designs Featured Shop of the Month

Nancy Anderson Designs is this months featured shop at the On Fire for Handmade Gift Guide. You will find stunning, handmade creations you will love to wear! Everything you can imagine to adorn yourself from Head to Toe. Must have pieces for every jewelry box!
Jewelry….do we need it? Do we love it? I think most women enjoy wearing a beautiful necklace, the perfect bracelet, or a special pair of earrings. I have been designing and creating jewelry for seven (plus) years. Designing is an enjoyable, creative challenge. Attention to detail is an important component to the process. I love variety so my designs are mostly one-of-a-kind, ranging from classic to bling, to ethnic.  Jewelry is for fun, compliments, enjoyment, and to enhance what one is wearing. That is my design goal. Nancy Anderson Designs wants you to have the very best quality jewelry that you will love to wear!

Nancy Anderson

Owner/Designer

“My name is Nancy and I am the owner and designer/operator of Jeweled Designs by Nancy Anderson.  After retiring from teaching a door opened and I found a wonderful new interest. I had always loved decorating gardening, playing with color but had never discovered an outlet for that passion.

 

Along came a gift of beautiful jade from my parents trip to China. What to do? Happily the Signed up for a class and now I have a closet, and then some, full of beautiful gemstones, antique silver pieces, pearls, ethnic beads, etc.

All, of this to choose from when creating, for the most part, one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.

 

Passion for Jewelry

I am proud of my attention to detail which I learned in the beginning and is a benchmark to all of my designs. This new creative avenue for me covers seven plus years.

Time passes quickly. I continue to learn and to love what I do. Who would have thought retirement could be so much fun.”

I was raised in the Military and lived in several countries and several states. I’ve loved experiencing all the “sights and sounds” of every place I have lived and visited. I feel this appreciation of other cultures has contributed to my love of art, color and music.

I’ve always been fascinated by the Ribbons of Rainbows that dance around a room when the sun catches a crystal. I use primarily Swarovski and Swarovski Strass crystals. Opening my shop, has given me the opportunity to share, with you, the pleasure I get from my Dancing Rainbows.

What goes perfectly with a cup of hot coffee or cocoa on a chilly day? A coaster/mug rug embroidered with hearts. Denim of course! The perfect addition to the gift of a Log Cabin quilt for a beloved neice and her life love to begin their new life together as husband and wife. Beautiful. I loved them and so do they.

I purchased this for a much beloved neice’s wedding, she is like a daughter to me and I really had my heart set on a quilt. A log cabin quilt specifically, my prayers were answered when I found Janeen and Cherished Cabin Quilts. There were many factors and yet the biggest one was my immediate ‘YES!’. It was perfect. All cotton and it just sang out to me. Upon receiving the quilt my neice and fiance’ echoed this and both are thrilled with such a beautiful piece of work. Perfection! True craftsmanship at it’s finest. I cannot thank you enough!
