What she likes best about the Fair: I love seeing the work of the talented Wake Forest community. I also like purchasing gifts that are unique and meaningful.

Her products: We will be selling reversible tote bags that are perfect for laptops, crafts, groceries or as a purse. We will also have an assortment of handcrafted felt Christmas ornaments. We offer custom orders, personalization and embroidery.

A little history: My mother has been sewing since she was a child, and she taught me to sew. Last year, I started making felt ornaments and decided to bring them to the Artisans’ Fair. We enjoy sewing because it allows us to spend time together.
