Very Eclectic Clothing is now Very Eclectic. In the past few years it and I, as an artist, have been evolving. A friend told me I was moving sideways into a new era....
Very Eclectic Clothing was born in 1992. I sold women's hand-dyed and painted clothing and accessories for years, both retail and wholesale. Times were good. But change is also good. In 2019 I stopped making clothing. It was the right decision. I no longer enjoyed the process. And that allowed me to fully concentrate on the collections I am truly passionate about.
Accessories: I'll continue to make all your favorite hand-dyed scarves, and the most popular are for sale on this website. The latest generation of leather flower pins are also available, and I'm working on some new pin/clip ideas. Hats and headbands, because of sizing, will only appear at shows according to the season.
Buttons: The covered buttons are the similar to those that have graced my clothing over the years. Now there are also leather covered buttons. The newest addition is a gorgeous collection of antique hand-painted shell buttons. You're sure to find buttons for your new project or to spruce up an old favorite.
Yarn: I've always been an avid knitter/crocheter. One day I realized I could dye and paint my own yarn. It was as simple as that! I only use the finest luxury and novelty yarns. Each skein is individually hand-painted in the same colors found on my scarves.
Knit/Crochet Patterns & Kits: Frequently customers ask for knitting patterns to go with the yarn. So I am creating simple one skein projects for each type of yarn, one for knitting and one for crochet. I hope to have them ready soon. Then, I was asked for kits. Along with the pattern and yarn you will be able to purchase (needles, hooks, and notions) needed to complete the project.
Shawl Pins: Another request from customers, and something I personally wanted: shawl pins. I'm creating shawl pins in a variety of metals that will work on fabric as well as knitted/crocheted scarves and shawls. Coming soon!
Very Eclectic is now available online. Let me know what you think. Or, come and see me at a show. It's good to see old friends and make new ones. As always, I will try to create accessories and items that help you feel beautiful every day.
See you soon,
