Artist Spotlight

I am a native of Columbus, Ohio. I am the 3rd to the oldest sibling in a very large family. My sewing skills came from my Mom, and 4-H. I was just starting to get back into sewing and creating after the birth of my 2 Granddaughters and the purchase of my home. I began dappling, making curtains and many different toddler outfits.

3 Years ago, my Sister, Cathy got me involved in making Hand Crafted Christmas gifts for our family and friends, boy did that ever start an excitement in me that I haven't had in years.

Knowing that my job at a major bank was in jeopardy as is most people's jobs these days, I started CRAFTED BY TERI. I started out small, with local Craft Shows and Farmers Markets. Then it dawned on me, we have the World Wide Web at our fingertips. You can visit my online stores at:


My inventory is ever changing so stop in and browse often.


Finding beautiful fabrics to work with inspires me to create quality, beautiful and useful products. Knowing that I have created a unique, quality product, that will be enjoyed for years to come, motivates me to keep sewing.


"Do what you love, love what you do and always exceed expectations."

By Harvey MacKay


My ultimate future would be to support myself full-time with my craft. I'm almost there but not quite yet. I would also like to teach my Grandchildren the Art of Sewing. I believe it is one of our lost Arts and fading quicker by the minute. Knowing that I have taught them a useful skill would just thrill me to pieces.


  1. Your new blog looks very nice! I love the colors and the clean style. I'm always carry things too far.

  2. I completely agree with Mary Anne, the colours and simplicity of your blog are wonderful. Even your font suits it, sort of vintage.

  3. First of all Thank You Mary Anne, and ChezChani, I appreciate your looking and your positive comments. If anyone from the Esmarts team would like a link to their store added on my blog, please let me know.

    This week I am working on some Stained Glass Items, and having a great time doing it.

    I have a Show this weekend, so I am finishing up a few projects. Taking a break from the Mind Boggling World of computer land.

    I am learning alot of new things concerning blogging, and the internet, so it has been a positive experience for me.

    I guess OLD DOGS can learn new tricks after all.

    Have a Blessed Day Everyone!
