I refer to my products as Mixed Stitch Media because my items are made with recycled book paper sewn in between two pieces of canvas fabric.  The sewing already done on them allows you to have a finished product that looks like you did the sewing.  
As my orders grew I needed to outsource their creation, so I sought out to wonderful companies that both hire the disabled to do the work.  The Eisenhower Center located in Milwaukee, WI and Aspiro located in Green Bay, WI.  They have been so wonderful to work with and I'm happy to be contributing to the employment of the disabled.  So please know that when you purchase my products you are doing the same!
