Etsy Featured Shop: Char's Home Decor

Char's Home Decor is the Etsy shop of Charlene S. Noto, of Carnation, Washington. Char has been crafting for nearly half a century, starting as a young child. She learned to sew and embroider from her grandmother, and while her grandmother and mother tried to teach her to crochet and knit, she found that those two crafts never took. She has also branched out into other crafts through the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), but finds that she always returns to her "first love," embroidery.

Char's shop on Etsy, which has been open since May of this year, sells embroidered home decor items--pillowcases, kitchen items, and table linens, most frequently. Her pillowcases, like the "Paisley Power" design at the top of this post, have been popular sellers thus far in her shop. She also has more projects in the works: "Hopefully, when I'm finished it will be of use to others who have limited mobility. Right now, it is in the design stage but keep your eyes on my shop. :-)"

Char also maintains a blog at Delving Under the Covers, where you can read about day to day life and also find her Associated Content articles.
