Hello and welcome to my new blog.
I love vintage embroidery!
Every piece is a beautiful one-of-a-kind work of art and unique in it’s own way. The time and effort that women of past eras put into each piece amazes me.
One day, I decided to use an embroidered pillowcase that had stains in the corner to make a dress for my little Anna. It turned out so well, my husband suggested I make them for others to enjoy too. Anna’s Heirloom Boutique was born!
Nowadays, I don’t stop at just making dresses. I have all these scraps from vintage linens, and I haven’t the heart to throw them away. I have been finding ways to use the scraps that pile up by making coin purses and hair accessories. But the wheels are always turning and new ideas are always popping up.
Please join me in my endeavor to breath new life into these works of art from the past.
I am excited to share my passion for re-purposing vintage embroidery with you!
