Ellen Howard

I learned to sew in second grade; even then I knew that sewing and fabric were my passion. Born with a love for fabrics, color and nature, I incorporate this love in my work. I make clothing and accessories using the finest silks, cottons, woolens and velvets. Each piece is one of a kind or a limited edition, hand dyed, hand printed and carefully sewn.

When I’m not stitching, dyeing or printing I can be found outside enjoying my gardens or walking my dog on the rural road where I live. This is where I find my inspiration. What I see gives me ideas about what to make, and what colors to use. I am constantly excited by what I notice around me it’s a great way to live and work.
