My name is Hilary, and I live in northwest Wisconsin.

For generations, the men and women in my family have made beautiful, useful things. I was taught by these crafting experts that to do something right is important, that handmade things are precious, and that to share these creations and this knowledge is a gift.

I value my developing skills as nothing short of a legacy, and I hope to pass on what I have learned to my children, in particular, but also to anyone else who wants to know how to do like we do.

Often inspired by necessity and frugality, I find it so rewarding to make for myself many of the things I want or need--especially when I can use reclaimed or re-purposed materials.

My favorite materials are fabric, yarn, paper, and food. I love to crochet, knit, sew, and in general create great stuff that makes our life better, prettier, easier, or more fun!
