Turning pieces of the past into carefully handcrafted keepsakes for life.

It began with the passing of a friend's father and a special request. The father had a favorite shirt that he always wore, and instead of giving away that special piece of clothing and all the memories that went with it, we were asked to capture them by making a "memory pillow" out of some of his clothing. It was a beginning with no end, as requests came in for us to create more keepsakes from the well-remembered fabrics of a loved one's life.

These items brought such joy and comfort to those who received them, and it became our heartfelt mission to transform pieces of the past into meticulously handcrafted keepsakes for life - ensuring that your memory is seen and felt in every stitch.

We know it's impossible to hold a memory in your hands, so we make it possible to hold a treasured keepsake close to your heart forever.
