My Grandmother’s Lace

Studio Location K

Rosemary Bigelow

Rosemary will be hosting guest wood turner Chris Bosley, jeweler Carol Weidman of Iceopals Jewelry.

I have loved color, pattern and fabrics since I was a little girl.  My mother wasn’t very adept at the sewing machine so I learned to sew at a young age and began designing and making most of my own clothes.  As an adult I became fascinated with home décor, always playing with how many patterns and colors I could use in a room.  What began as an interest in repurposing bits and pieces of beautiful antique lace (hence the name of my company) has graduated into a full blown interest and business in soft furnishings for the home and accessories for women and children.

I consider myself a “practical artist” – I like to start with an existing textile and make something more – whether it’s an exquisite handmade antique remnant, a vibrant new fabric or custom printing a favorite photo or original artwork.  I love creating all kinds of home décor and clothing but over the years I’ve made more pillows than anything.  I approach pillow design as the framing of a piece of art.

I use my home as my design laboratory – constantly trying out new pattern mixes in bedding and pillow designs, changing slipcovers, pillows and table linens with the seasons. This same passion transfers to my customers – helping you find the perfect fabrics and styles to complete your dream room.  I’d love to brainstorm with you about your special decorating projects; the best times to do this are the Sunday morning of the tour or by separate appointment.
