Dorcas Calhoun Granny's Attic

Studio LL9
Granny's Attic is a mixed-media shop that embraces old fashioned crafts and collectibles as well as the creative reuse/repurpose idealism of the depression era. We make nostalgic ornaments and accessories, but we also have a very quirky side that offers a few surprises!

About the Artist

I grew up knowing that I was named after a famed seamstress in the Bible, so I always felt the urge to follow in her footsteps.  Unfortunately, I just do not enjoy using a sewing machine (so I leave most of the sewing to my daughter, who can work magic with it).  I do enjoy hand stitching aprons and lap quilts, but over the years I have also learned to cross stitch, embroider, candlewick, chicken-scratch, and even to "paint with beads" and bead on wire. I have spent most of my life embellishing my world in that way. I believe an artist breathes life in to mundane items and creates a heartbeat that others can feel when they gaze upon the finished project.  My creations are small, but I always strive to bring out that vibrant hum of life in each piece.  I do crafting for the sheer joy and peace it brings me, and I hope that you will feel that joy and peace when you take home something from my shop.
