Profile for ThreeFrenchHens
I sew, collect, craft, quilt, and embroider! I am the only daughter of an only daughter of an only daughter ~ going back seven generations ~ and every one of them was a craftswoman; every one, a collector.
As an antiquer -and- a quilter -and- a paper-smith, my interests are wonderfully diverse ... as you will soon discover!
When the fabric bug bites me, I create beautiful miniature and sampler quilts, classic handkerchiefs, purses, totes, sachets, and bags in beautiful reproduction and designer fabrics ~ you will find these in my shop as well ~ it is where I pursue that ever elusive Perfect Seam!
And for those times when I am not out estate sale hunting, sewing, or quilting, I adore playing and creating with my fantastic collection of antique and vintage papers, prints, and designs.
I draw my creative inspiration from a tremendous collection of original Victorian, Edwardian, and Regency engravings, prints, and chromolithographs as well as from a glorious *stack* of quilts dating to the turn of the last century left to me by my mother and grandmother.
For my beautiful antique and vintage treasures ~ perfect for gifting, lovely for your home, inspirational for your art ~ visit Le Petit Poulailler here on ArtFire.
And I love a good treasure hunt ~ if there is something special you are searching for, let me know and I *know* I will find it for you!
Everything is created, packed, and shipped from my smokeless, dog-friendly home here along the beautiful Jersey Shore!
