Vintage Made Modern is my Mantra!

Good JuJu

Vintage Made Modern has been the common theme throughout my entrepreneurial journey! Vintage content has always inspired my work at my company Indygo Junction’s sewing patterns and books from creating fashions with hankies in the book Hankie Style to reinventing redwork designs with a modern twist in Folk Art Motifs.

How about aprons? This vintage style inspired our popular Crossover Reversible Apron.

I love incorporating vintage textiles and recycling thrift shop fabric finds into clothing, purses and home décor. Truth be told, I am an “addict”. My vintage addiction has led me to build an expansive collection of vintage textiles from quilt to embroidery as well as ephemera. It was the collecting of vintage fashion imagery that led me to discover the work of Mary Brooks Picken and the Woman’s Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences and write Vintage Notions: An Inspirational Guide to Needlework, Cooking, Sewing, Fashion and Fun.

I love sharing the wealth of knowledge from the Woman's Institute’s teachings which have so much relevance for today…from green sewing techniques to discussions of starting your own sewing business, as well as looking to domestic arts for creative fulfillment and happiness. You will be inspired by the stories of Mary and her students to seek contentment and joy through creativity in your own life.

Compelled to continue to share Mary and the Institute’s timeless content, I created the Vintage Notions Monthly magazine.

Each issue includes:
• Fashion and Dressmaking articles and illustrations (ideal for coloring)
• Inspiring essays & student testimonials
• Lessons & techniques for sewing, embroidery, cooking & millinery
• Magic Sewing Pattern – an easy-to-make fashion drafted using diagrams & your measurements

The Vintage Notions collection is the inspiration for much of my publishing work as well as my fabric lines with RJR. My current collection - Vintage Made Modern - Stitcher’s Garden was created from a series of vintage embroidery patterns and vintage fabrics dated 1932.

My newest brand Fabriflair™ was also inspired by a vintage piece in my collection. When I created my own Radiant Star from our dimensional paper piecing kits (there are six to choose from), being a Jayhawk, I had to make mine crimson & blue! Go KU!
