Designing fabric and sewing finished goods is my focus, but custom orders and creative collaborations are always welcome, and I'd love to hear your ideas! So far I have been blessed to collaborate with several talented artists on various beautiful and useful products.
After connecting on social media, we started developing the felt-like learning sets in 2018. After launching our collaboration with the Lady Lent Banner, we produced the Pascha and Preparing the Gifts learning sets, and now Orthodox Pebbles is almost halfway through making learning sets for all of the Great Feasts & Pascha! I have been very happy to help Orthodox Pebbles since they have been providing free religious educational materials for many years.
We also connected on social media, and then met in person in 2018! Marian and I are "idea people" so we had fun collaborating on the 40-day Advent calendar, going from pencil drawings to a finished product starting with the 2019 Advent season. Our Advent calendar has been widely popular as DIY fabric and finished products.
A sweet mama requested a St. George pillow for her son similar to the Guardian Angel pillow I have been making, so I reached out to Casey at Sparks 4 Orthodox Kids to collaborate. Our final product is endearing to children and adults alike, since it resembles an icon, yet has an approachable look with its bright colors and bold lines. We are looking forward to future collaborations together, especially since Casey has been providing free coloring pages for the community for years, often drawing custom pages for people when they cannot find a coloring page for their child's patron saint.
My dear friend and fellow Orthodox mama is an accomplished artist and has been published for many years...I couldn't wait for an opportunity for a collaboration! The Gilberts are at seminary, so all profit from our work together goes directly to supporting this hopeful clergy family. Meg has a special touch with collage, and this fabric Jesse Tree has so many hidden gems.
