Happy 1 year to Purdy

Hard to believe it, but we are already celebrating our 1 year Anniversary. Last February, Christina and I casually started talking about up cycling stuff. We had no idea we would go this far. It has been an exciting and challenging year. We would like to thank you all for your support.

Here’s what’s new..........

Drab, boring window treatments? Not anymore. We have added this new service in 2011. Our first order was for an entire house of window treatments! Yes, that was for every window in her house. She requested mostly roman shades, which is great because that is our specialty. This is a picture of a roman shade we made.
The window treatments do not have to be up cycled. We will use whatever material you choose. The process would include us coming out to your house and doing a window and material selection consultation. We also install the completed window treatment!


Next up........Intermediate sewing workshop great for the individual that can sew fabric together but wants to do more. This class will be Sunday 3/13 from 11-2pm at Pleasant Ridge Montessori.

We just finished a Beginner sewing workshop at the end of January. Thanks to *Lucy Voegele for supplying the beautiful fabrics and also helping out with the class. We hope to continue offering workshops monthly throughout the year. Let us know if you have any suggestions or special classes that you would like us to offer.


We want to start an “open sew session” for students to collaborate with fellow creators on individual projects. The open sew would be once a month for about 2 hours and students would need to bring whatever project they would like to work on. Christina and I would be available to answer any questions as well as fellow students. More info soon.

Custom orders

The holiday season was filled with lots of special orders. We made wine bags and bridesmaid dress bags and scarves etc. etc. etc. Here’s a sampling of some of the stuff we made.
