Craftsman Style Textiles, Hand Embroidery


I spent a large part of my childhood living in a Craftsman Style home in Burlingame, California. The comfort and beauty of that house shaped my sense of home and identity.  The wavy glass, huge front porch, solid front door, useful built ins, funky kitchen and bees humming in the wisteria hanging down from above our back deck, are features I love to remember. These strong elements of design and character are forever etched in my mind.

Although I have moved away from that house, I haven’t moved away from the Craftsman ideals of simplicity, beauty and function. This is what Arts and Crafts Stitches is all about. Creating beauty and comfort with a hand crafted touch.

Arts & Crafts Stitches is a cottage industry of hand- crafters in Rail Road Flat, CA. Our needlework is original, hand designed, sewn, hand embroidered and made to order.

I hope you will be inspired by our work.  Thank you so much for visiting.

Wishing you well,
