"Inspired at a young age by my mother and grandmother, I have spooled my imagination through creative pieces of art. Fabric Art that is, aprons, scarves, and of course, my favorite... handmade bags." Nan's business, the Vermont Bag Lady, has grown and flourished into a productive cottage industry since its opening in 1999. What began as a creative outlet and a distraction from a disability, is now fueled by a passion for creating beautiful handmade articles. Wearable art featuring handmade buttons and unique embellishments are her trademark. "I am pleased to be part of a group of Vermont artistans who capture the beauty of handmade crafts in a manufactured world."
