What's a Trivet?
A trivet is used on the kitchen countertop to protect it when you put a hot pot on the countertop. It acts like a hot pad or heavy towel with the added benefit of scent and colorful fabric prints.
Our scented round hot pads are kitchen trivets used to protect your countertop from a hot pot or hot item. Use them on your countertop and the heat from a pan or pot will be emitted when you put something hot on the fabric trivet. Our round scented hot pads are hand sewn and hand crafted in our small studio in Springdale, Arkansas. We select a wide variety of fabrics (most 100% cotton prints) to cut and craft into our unique fabric trivits.
We have been making fabric scented hot pads since 2011 and we sell our hot pads at retail stores. We started showing at the Dallas Gift Show in January 2016.
About our new items
We are introducing the new Bottle Buddie quilted bottle cozies. I created a cover for my water bottle that kept my hand dry while walking in the neighborhood. I didn't want to grasp the bottle so the little elastic handle can slip off to go around your wrist and the bottle can hang while you walk. I gave one to my sister and she liked it as well, so we are introducing them now on our site.
I have always loved to make things and began knitting Barbie doll clothes at the age of 8. I learned to sew from my mother who could sew anything and from my 7th grade home ec teacher Miss Dorothy Davie. When I had the opportunity to have a small craft business of my own, I took the chance and started with candles and scented round hot pads.
I started selling in regional craft booths and sold and consigned items to a few local stores. In 2016 my husband remodeled a workspace for me to work from in Springdale.
This website will be our virtual on line store to share the items we make with a wider group of people. From time to time I have had people contact me to purchase more of our hand made items. My hope is this website will help us sell to other people outside our area.
If you are in our area, we hope you will take time to visit the downtown areas throughout Northwest Arkansas. There are many local attractions that are great to visit if you are in the area.
