Shop: Tied to History


In making historical clothing I became frustrated by the lack of appropriate laces and trims… so I learned to make them! Now I would like to make them for you too.

There are too many options to picture all of them, so email me and we will talk! I love to weave and fingerloop in silk, cotton, and metallic threads.  Prices start at $10/yd and I accept Paypal. I am happy to ship internationally or deliver to events I am attending.
