Drawing inspiration from nature, Wheat and Wildflower Handmade offers high quality handmade clothing made from natural fibres. All products are proudly handmade with love and care in a home-based studio.
The focus is on “capsule-style” clothing with garments that wear beautifully individually or can be effortlessly combined for multiple outfits that work for office or casual wear and anything in between. Neutral staple pieces combine with everyday layering garments that are rich in colour and texture. In contrast to fast-fashion clothing that is available at so many big stores, our products will appeal to conscious consumers who wish to support a local, handmade business and want to add quality, lasting garments to their wardrobes.
I began sewing as a child in 4-H thirty years ago. Creating with colours and textures has been a hobby ever since. Five years ago I delved into garment sewing as a creative outlet and I quickly became involved in the online sewing community. As I became more involved, small sewing businesses began asking me to help test and share their patterns and fabrics.
While I started sewing for my family, friends and family often asked if they could purchase my work. In October 2020, Wheat and Wildflower Handmade was born when I decided to decided to act on my long-time dream to be an entrepreneur by combining my business skills with my love of sewing and well-made clothing.
My husband, Scott and I live with our 3 children on a farm near Arnes, Manitoba, Canada. In my spare time I love to garden, ride horses, see the wheat (and other crops) grow and watch the pastures for my favourite wildflowers.
Thank you for your support of my dream!
