Profile

The brainchild of Tamara Lee, who once channeled her creative energies into a career in film and video production, this spacious craft room across from busy J.J. Byrne Park fits nicely into Park Slope’s boutique-strewn Fifth Avenue. A glass storefront showcases hand-crafted vases, delicate stemware, and knick-knacks like faux bird’s eggs. But the heart of the store—which Lee originally envisioned as being strictly devoted to fabric—is towards the back, past artistic displays of Muslin whole-leaf tea bags, wedding-worthy cake cutters, textured serving plates stamped with whimsical designs, scrapbook papers, and Savon de Marseille lotions. Here, sewers will delight in a wall covered with bolts of fabric organized by color, plus accoutrements like ribbons, tomato-shaped pincushions, needles, and beeswax. A nearby armoire bursts with vintage textiles, from cushions to table runners, which Lee collects from antique shows. For those with more particular needs, Lee draws upon a pool of local craftspeople to offer customized service, whether it’s building furniture, sewing curtains, or helping to design a living space.
