Angela M. Hillstrom
Throughout the 1990's I was active in womens living history events that have helped define the roles of women during the era of the American Civil War. It was then that my interest in clothing construction, womens handwork and textiles from the nineteenth century grew into a passion. I was fortunate to have been able to have access to the many collections in the Tennessee State Museum to study. Wonderful examples of womens clothing, handwork, quilts and samplers. From then to the present, I continue to use my sewing skills and knowledge of nineteenth century textiles to grow my successful business.
At this point my life has become quite simple. It revolves around my family, friends and my Work. I am so fortunate to be able to be successful at what I love to do...it is my passion! Most importantly,what I do is from my heart! I use my feelings and imagination to connect with you AND you feel that too!!! We form a bond and I could not ask for more!!!
I am honored to have been chosen for the Directory Of Traditional American Crafts through
Early American Life magazine for 2009, 2010 and 2011.
