Meghan's unique use of color is so refreshing! Once you have held one of her creations in your hands, it is evident that she has very thoughtfully chosen each fabric to create a unique piece of heirloom quality craftsmanship. Not only are these practical and durable, they compliment todays bold use of color. Being able to purchase a piece of textile art made from 100% reclaimed fabric is also satisfying, you would never know that these materials were destined for a landfill.
Mayday is just DAYS away! Share the event and help us make Mayday awesome!
