Meet Margaret Olson from Vinalhaven Island Maine

My items are created from pre-loved wool items. I search for sweaters mostly and actually use ever piece of the sweater, even cutting the smallest of scraps into one inch squares and make a wreath Christmas ornament from them.   My scarves are made from pre-loved cashmere sweaters, a perfect gift for the person who has everything.

The very first thing I ever made was a felt needle holder in Brownies and I've been hooked ever since. Over the years I've made just about everything I could imagine. In the last few years I have really become passionate about making things from pre-loved wool items. I can say I actually use every piece of a sweater until it is gone, right down to one inch squares I save for making wreath Christmas ornaments. I believe it  is important that we try to be better stewards of the earth and I like to do my part with my passion for sewing pre-loved items into new creations.
