Catherine is a Social Historian by trade. She is a wealth of information and is able to help other
sellers with her knowledge of the correct methods of caring for vintage paper. A true romantic, Catherine has always loved old houses, period costumes, and anything else that painted a picture of "the way life used to be".
In high school she dabbled in vintage clothing. By the time she was in college she worked in a costume shop, devoured books on social history. My appetite for vintage clothing had grown into a love for historical costumes as well as historic dance.
Today she still does some consulting work as well as running a wholesale jewelry business marketing to museum shops and of course, selling her patterns! I'm also an active Babywearing Educator. She works to help families learn how to safely use a variety of baby carriers.
