Hi, I’m Leigh. Bittersweet Lane is my baby.
I grew up in “that” family. You know the one…always picking stuff up from a second hand shop or off the side of the road and fixing it up. When I was a kid, our dining room table was a giant wooden cable spool that my dad found, brought home piece by piece, reassembled and shellacked until the top looked like glass. (Of course, when we sold the house we had to leave the table there because there was no way to take it apart to get it out the door, but I digress.)
So fixing up furniture is in my blood. It’s something that I enjoy, and my workshop is my happy place. But honestly, I’m happy any time that I get to spend creating things. Sewing, painting, crafting, you name it….I do it. I’m grateful to my parents and grandparents (and my art teachers and Girl Scout leaders!), who gave me the skills that fuel my passion. And I consider myself lucky to be able to share the fruits of that passion with you, my clients and customers.
With Bittersweet Lane, I hope to encourage those around me to fulfill their passions as well. As such, I’ve begun to assemble a group of talented artisans to create a community, and a cooperative way to share all of our talents with the public.
