Leatherworking

We specialize in unique items for gamers, geeks, and nerds.  In addition to gaming gear, game-themed pieces, we also make a line of gentlemen's wallets, keychains, flask wraps, and valet trays.

Crochet

Using decades of crochet, sewing, and fabric experience, our unique crocheted items range from hair accessories like velvety soft scrunchies to intricate diamond patterns for our sterling silver earrings. Then add a splash of home decor like hand towels for the kitchen, designer coasters and so much more.

Our Story

Using a pandemic to drive our dreams

In 2019, we dreamed of creating our own business, selling leather and yarn products at art shows and pop-ups. We planned to open in early 2020, but a worldwide pandemic threw us a small curveball.

Instead of giving up, we spent time during lockdown planning, learning, and making items to have on hand when we could get back out there to sell items in person and online. 

As restrictions lifted in 2021, we slowly made our way out there, meeting people, showing off our products and getting to know the local artisan community.

Every stitch is laid in one at a time by hand.

This is where old world traditions meet new work style and tools.  We love using the airbrush to apply dyes to leather projects.

Every detail is important to us.  From the color choice to the yarn material to the design of the buttons, we strive for quality in design and construction so that you get a product that is beautiful and that lasts.

Our joy comes from the act of creation then seeing the joy these creations bring to our customers.
