Hooray for this month’s sponsor, Frayed Sew! And if you are wondering, can a shop live up to that stinkin‘ cute name? The answer is, yes.
Tell us a bit about Frayed Sew‘s history.
Frayed Sew sprang from my urge to bring high quality handcrafted items to the people of Helena. When I shop, and my husband can attest to this, I love to feel and handle my purchases. I want to see with my own two eyes the quality of the piece being bought.
What kind of items do you carry?
Don’t be deceived by the name of shop, we are not a sewing shop, oh well I do accept b. handmade designs custom orders. Frayed Sew is eclectic. We have 50 artists in total right now, most are from Montana, all are from the U.S. We sell hip jewelry, clothing, prints, cards, hair accessories, hats, purses, clutches, and totes, plushies, baby gear, a little of everything. Oh and to plug Dig this Chick – yep Frayed Sew has her stuff in stock!
When you aren’t making things or selling things others make, what do you enjoy?
I enjoy spending time with my hubby, Nick. He’s my best friend and when he’s not traveling, we are inseparable. We could be hanging out on the deck or motorcycling–my hubby has a way to make me realize everything will be alright. When I’m frazzled, he centers me. I really enjoy hanging out with family, even though I don’t get to do this too often. I also enjoy spending time with my four-legged kiddos, Sunny (Frenchie bulldog) and Mr. Bean (Boston Terrier). I enjoy gardening and everything that has to do with gardening. I love cooking and baking. OK I’m a regular Martha Stewart, except the jail part. Reading is top on my list and I set aside some time to read. And, of course, I really enjoy my lunch dates, supper club, and desserts and drinks with the girls. And I enjoy ice cream and caramels quite a bit.
For people who can’t visit the store, how can they get their hands on your goods?
Frayed Sew is working on a website and a possible webshop. And if you see any items you like on the Frayed Sew facebook page, I would gladly take orders over the phone (406.422.7725).
