Barrel chair given new life by Vintage Renewal
Home Interiors is the category where you will find our Team Shops that focus on decorative and practical items for the home. As we are about textile and fiber art related work, the natural things that come to mind are linens, quilts, pillows, baskets, and fiber art for the wall. We have them all! Vintage Renewal, who salvaged the chair in the photo above, has our largest pieces: furniture that has been salvaged by Jeanne Connolly. Her Etsy shop is currently low on the big pieces, but has lots of wonderful pillows to choose from. You can see past furniture pieces on the sold page of her website, showing a distinctive style and vision. Rescuing such large pieces and giving them new life is something I applaud with all of my heart!
Many of our members make a concerted effort at recycling, reclaiming old fabric, incorporating vintage fabrics into new pieces and using non-toxic dyes in their work. We can make a difference on our environment by the choices we make in what materials we use. One of our members, Fabrique Fantastique, makes vintage her ecological contribution:
Jan Marriott, owner of this vintage paradise, has pages and pages in her Etsy shop filled with quilts, scarves, fabric and even some cultural textiles.
Then, Papaver Vert, always has a wonderful selection of felted containers, vessels, objects, and accessories. Patty uses wonderful colors, bringing life to these wonderful home accents:
One of our newest members, Susan Shinnick, is kind of a Renaissance woman! She is so talented and does so many different things that it was hard to know where to put her. But, she does have a focus on the home and with such beautiful results!
