CREATIONS (RE)NEW: Good Intentions, Good ProductsFrancesca Palange
At Creations (Re)New, unique bags, purses, pillows, scarves, and accessories are prayerfully handcrafted. Sustainable goods are created with repurposed, vintage, and rescued materials while practicing time-honoured handcrafts such as sewing, embroidery, knitting and crochet. Mellie, the owner of the enterprise, learned to sew on her mother’s machine, still occasionally sews on her great-grandmother’s Singer, and was taught the art of hand embroidery by her grandmother, Mimi, at a young age. Her passion for nature, sustainable-living and recycling came from her paternal grandmother. After marrying, establishing a family, and working in varying roles as a Park Ranger, Social Worker, Substitute Teacher while crafting all the while, Mellie came home and opened Creations (Re)New in June, 2016. Want to see what she and her lovely team produce?
