Piecing together the scraps from the 1960s and 70s that Crik’s grandmother saved all these years has been fun, meditative, and at times challenging.
I made almost 100 potholders all together. Some I’ve been selling all along and others I’ve saved. Right now I have eleven potholders for sale in my Etsy Shop and next week I’ll be putting up about twenty-five more for sale.
I know from experience that few people are shopping for things other than food the week before Thanksgiving, but I do love having my Etsy Shop full of Potholders.
Functional Art makes great gifts. I’ve always seen my potholders as mini quilts. They’re hard workers, can be machine washed and dried, and look good too.
