It’s Monday! The day of the week I usually hate, but not now, with the start of House Fenway’s Maker’s Monday. I have something to look forward to at the start of every week. Each Monday is “Maker’s Monday”. I feature a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them.
Since starting House Fenway 2 years ago, it has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations. The time and talent that goes into each products made by a small business or artist far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. This week’s maker is no exception.
This Week’s Feature:
Hettie is the owner of Gam Gamz Handcrafted and is a master seamstress. Decorative pillow covers to infinity scarves, this girl definitely knows how to sew! Gam Gamz Handcrafted carries a wide range of fabric styles to match just about any decor and is always sourcing new prints to keep up with current trends. Hettie’s speciality, pillow covers, are the perfect inexpensive way to transform a room within minutes. And who doesn’t love that?
I have several of Gam Gamz Handcrafted pillow covers throughout my house, but my new buffalo-check cover is by far my favorite. It’s neutral without just being boring “Plain Jane” and can easily be incorporated with seasonal decor from Halloween to Christmas.
From now until Sunday September 30, 2018 use exclusive promo code MAKER18 and receive 15% off your purchase at Gam Gamz Handcrafted.
