Time for Transformation

I am pretty sure the transformation process we have planned for this website has a lot to do with the hundreds of conversations I have had with customers at craft shows around Vermont, over the last five years.

Going forward, I hope to share with you more about what truly makes Small Batch Design unique. In other words, you'll still see the What but I'll share more about the Why and How.

Hopefully over the next month you'll begin to see the transformation as I learn new website building skills. If you like the changes, please shoot me an email! Cheers, Wendy

  • 2023 Craft Shows

    My list of craft shows for 2023 is complete and I have posted a link below.

    It is always challenging to decide which markets to attend because there are many excellent ones.

    This year will be a mix of our favorite shows from previous years and lots of new ones we are excited to try. ALL fairs will be in Vermont this year, which is a first for us.

    Please join us and help support local artisans. It is so very important to us, especially now with rising inflation.

  • What's Your Style?

    Nothing says more about your personality than a handbag. Are you practical, playful, creative, strong, or adventurous? Your bag talks!

    Just like you, my products are one-of-a-kind. Each item is created individually with unique and exciting color combinations to perfectly express your personality. It's wearable and it's art and you can be sure I've got something just for you. If you don't see it, please just ask. I do custom work.

  • Superior Sewing Components

    It is so tempting (and a lot cheaper) to use inferior cotton fabrics, fabrics blended with polys, or pleather, but I am committed to 100% cotton. Cotton is fresh, strong, and ages beautifully. (Think favorite blue jeans.)

    Not only is cotton an ancient, plant-based fiber, it is sustainable and recyclable, which really matters to me. In my small way, I hope I am making this world a better, more beautiful place.

    Biodegradable Fabrics to Invest In (in other words, how long it takes for a fabric to degrade in a landfill):

    Hemp & Linen: 2 weeks

    Cotton: 3-5 months

    Polyester: 200+ years
