Functional Art- My Intuitive Potholders For Sale

 

Sold

I started making potholders because they were the closest thing to a small quilt that was functional that I could think of to make.  I had just started my business and it was during the first year of the Recession, so I thought I had a better chance of selling small functional art in the form of potholders than $300 quilts.

And I was right.  That fall and winter I sold about 100 potholders a month.  It gave me the confidence to stay part time at my job working with Developmentally Disabled Adults and keep working at my business.

I don’t know how many potholders I’ve sold since then.  I just know I keep making them and keep on selling them.

I’ve always believed in Functional Art, even when I was in Art School and it was looked down on.  But for me it makes sense to be surrounded by beauty as much as possible.

There’s still time to get my potholders for Christmas.  As long as we act quickly.  I have a bunch for sale, so if you see any you like you can let me know by emailing me at [email protected].

My Intuitive Potholders are $15 each + $5 shipping or 1-2 and $7 shipping for three or more. (shipping is a bit more outside the US) . 

Here’s what I have….

  1. Hi, Maria –

    My 81 year-old Mama ASKED for potholders for Christmas this year – can you believe it?!
    Of course, gifting her with one of yours would have great meaning for us both – for me, since I have followed your (and Jon’s) blog for many (many) years, and for her, since she has been a consummate seamstress, needle craft/hand-worker, and quilter her entire life.
    Looks like many of these beauties are sold, but if you have any more available and think you can ship (to California) by Christmas, will you please let me know?
    Regards, Leslie Exter
