Gifts Made By Hand
The designs and patterns of my products are derived from the Hmong culture and have symbolic meanings.My products are machine sewed and/or hand stitched using different stitching techniques, which include cross-stitching,long stitching,reverse appliqué and unique petite ink dying.
Jill Whitney-Birk Mixed Media
My work explores layers of memory/experience & focuses on women & their traditional vs. non-traditional roles, power & vulnerability. With a strong sense of nostalgia, I try to bring the viewer into the work through layers, hidden words, meanings & humor. I hope that each person who takes in my work will come away with their own intimate connection to it.
Christine is primarily a self taught artist with a natural interest in color, movement, and perfection. This has driven her to continue her craft, working to explore other mediums and types of art. Jewelry continues to be her passion. Crafting each piece to highlight the recipient’s own individuality and features, she buys her stones from the source as often as possible and hand-picks the elements she uses.

Mommy’s Craft Basket
Tired of not being able to find dolls for her daughter that actually felt like they could be loved, Michelle Williams was thrilled to discover the patterns of Weir Dolls and Crafts.
That first doll was the start of something, as Michelle discovered that each Waldorf-inspired doll offered her an opportunity to see a child smile. A small craft fair at her daughter’s Waldorf school led to an Etsy shop, and eventually to the site you see here.
Discovering other “old fashioned” arts, Michelle has added peg people, baby booties, and handmade soaps to her basket.
I love meeting new people & educating others on how easy it is to be green, keep their homes clean without the toxic chemicals,& be better stewards of our environment! I have been with Norwex Enviro Products since October 2010. In that time,I have been promoted 3 times to my current position as an Executive Sales Leader. I have my Masters degree in Education & enjoy teaching others about Norwex’s non-toxic cleaning system as an alternative to conventional cleaning methods. Educating others is truly a passion that comes naturally for me!
