Rhody artists ~ eco-woolies

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.


  1. I'm impressed. I especially like the b/w/g blanket as well.

  2. It's gorgeous isn't it? I lust in my heart after it.


We love to hear your thoughts. Chime in below, and we'll come to visit you, too!
