Graceful Rose

Graceful Rose is where you will find original art and romantic hand painted home decor items featuring roses. I love to take found objects, refurbish them and add my artistic touch to create something beautiful for your romantic home. In addition, I am always on the lookout for vintage treasures and I love the shabby chic, romantic and cottage style of decorating so you will find these things at Graceful Rose. I love all things related to tea and also love to collect china and other home decor items such as candlesticks, lamps, vintage linens and other items that would be lovely in a romantic, shabby chic or cottage home. I hope you will come by and visit often as I am always adding new items!

Sew Graceful

From my mother and aunt who were always sewing our clothes or home décor items to my grandmother who brought the skills of embroidery, cutwork, and various other needlecrafts with her from Italy, I have always been surrounded by women who worked with fabric. It is funny that making quilts was never one of the activities they had time to learn. So several years ago, I set out to learn quilting. Unfortunately, many of the fabrics that I could find locally were not what I was looking for…so I started Sew Graceful. I am so happy to be able to offer some of the best fabrics available today for both quilting and home décor. My focus is on romantic cottage fabrics, like the ever popular Barefoot Roses collection designed by Tanya Whelan for Free Spirit or the Mary Rose collections by Robert Kaufman. Lately, I’ve also expanded into children’s fabrics like the Cherry Baby collection by Lakehouse Drygoods. Fabrics by some well known designers are on the horizon…Valori Wells, Donna Dewberry, Heather Bailey, Erin McMorris, Anna Maria Horner and more. Also coming, just in time for the holiday season…Chateaux Rococo fabrics by Robyn Pandolph and the Chateaux Rococo Christmas Quilt kit. As I have watched my business grow, I’ve also decided to focus more on handcrafted products. So, look for more handcrafted home décor, purses, totes, and market bags, baby products, and paper whimsies. I have enjoyed the new direction my life has taken. I have met many wonderful ladies and men (Yes!! Men do quilt and sew!) on my journey and look forward to the beautiful road that lies ahead. I hope you visit me soon. God Bless!
