Mission:  We celebrate the artistry of women from around the world.  We embrace the passion they have for their culture and heritage.  We are inspired by their achievements.  We showcase a unique collection of their creations - wearable, decorative and functional.

We celebrate tradition and innovation, intuition and intention, creativity and skill.  We follow Fair Trade principles and showcase ethically produced products.  We support women expressing their creativity and using their skills to make their lives, their families' lives, their communities and our world a better place.

Nature is our original inspiration. We respect and care for the environment and our planet. We encourage rethinking, recycling and innovation in using and reusing materials.  We believe in relationships, partnerships and cooperation.  We strive to make the world more harmonious, happy and beautiful.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
