Ellen Howard

I learned to sew in second grade; even then I knew that sewing and fabric were my passion. Born with a love for fabrics, color and nature, I incorporate this love into my work. I make clothing and accessories using the finest silks, cottons, woolens and velvets. Each piece is one-of-a-kind or a limited edition, hand dyed, hand printed and carefully sewn.

Inspiration finds me while I’m enjoying my gardens or walking my dog on the rural road where I live. What I see gives me ideas about what to make, and what colors to use — it’s a great way to live and work.
