Providence, Rhode Island
One of the crafters we met at Craftopia was Joanne Sargent of eco-woolies. Joanne takes used sweaters and makes them into something new. Clothes, blankets, hats, scarves, all so beautiful.
I fell in love with the blanket behind her, a quilt of various black, white and gray sweaters, backed by a metallic silver material that was so soft! I just wanted to snuggle up under it then and there.
Bear fell in love with the hats. I think she wants one of each kind! This one from her Web site is crazy-cute:
We both loved the Christmas stockings, in so many great colors and designs.
Joanne takes custom orders as well, and she is so friendly and enthusiastic about her work! It was a pleasure to talk with her.
