This is our Whimsical Holiday theme for the 2020 holiday season. It is a pretty collection of fabric inspired by the colorful world of Dr. Seuss' Whoville.  It displays a collection of fabrics that includes solids and patterns in shades of green, red, pink, black, and white. These festive pieces are stitched together with Grinch Green colored zigzag stitching. 

We are offering our made to order holiday pieces in our most popular shapes and sizes in the hopes that everyone can choose exactly what they would like to add to their celebration of the holiday. By request, we can create any of our dozens of shapes and sizes we make and even new pieces we may not have considered, so please don't hesitate to send us a message if you'd like to create something special together.

You can choose the style, size, and shape that is perfect for your home and we’ll stitch it together just for you.  Because we are making these pieces to order, you’ll save yourself any custom order fee. You’ll be treated to the custom order experience of selecting exactly what you want to be made for you without adding any fees to your handmade creation. We have included standard shipping to domestic destinations in the pricing of these products. 

Slight variations in fabric selection may occur, but the collection of fabrics used for your handmade fabric items will stay true to the color theme shown in the listing photos.  Because of the handmade nature of our fabric items, each one will have its own unique appearance and slight variation in size. We're creating these holiday pieces in five beautiful fabric combinations this year. You'll find all of them waiting for you in our Holiday Shop.

All of our coiled fabric pieces are made by hand here at 1840 Farm.  Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being combined with other complimentary fabrics and then wrapped around a length of cording, joining the fabrics as we go.  The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on my sewing machine.  I continue to wrap the coil and shape each item as it is stitched.

Each piece has its own unique color pattern and slight variation in shape.  Because every piece is handmade, each one is a true original.  Our handmade baskets display the raw edge of the fabrics used to create it.  They are handmade in our non-smoking farmhouse.  

I make our fabric items using the same technique my Great Grandmother used over 50 years ago.  She lovingly transformed worn out clothing into useful household items that were used in their New England farmhouse.  While her items were made purely for utility purposes, it is my goal to create beautiful handmade items that can serve a useful purpose in your home.

Each basket in our Collection comes with a hand signed product tag that includes the date that the basket was finished.  Each basket is numbered and displayed in our photo gallery.

Our fabric items can be cleaned by spot cleaning or washing in the gentle cycle of your washing machine.  Gently reshape baskets or trivets while still damp and allow to air dry.  Overturning a damp basket on top of a bowl will ensure that it retains its shape while drying.

Trivets are not fire or flameproof.  They are constructed of cording, fabric, and thread.  They should not be placed in the microwave, oven, or directly over an open flame or hot burner.  We find them to be an excellent buffer between a hot cooking pan and our kitchen counter.  As they are made using natural materials, they will eventually conduct some heat, especially when used under extreme conditions.  Care should be taken to ensure that they are not damaged and that the surfaces beneath them are adequately protected.

We also make custom pieces to order.  Contact us if you have questions or would like to place a custom order. We would love to work together to make a beautiful piece just for you. We hope to be sending something special from our farmhouse to your house soon!
