What Makes Our Goods the Best in the Woods?
The Hands that Make Them!
Lois uses her energy and talents to make quilts for the homeless through her church quilting group, Rose Garden Quilters in Fremont, Michigan.
She lives here in Bitely, and also makes an assortment of knitted and stitched items that we carry in the store. Lois donates the proceeds of her items, and is always accepting donated fabric, batting, and assistance. Way to go, Lois!

"My start in crafting began with scrap-booking when I had my daughter in 1998. After that I was introduced to card making. I started a business making and selling all occasion cards and small gifts made of paper at flea markets and craft shows. In the fall of 2016 I was asked to make a sign from wood…..I was immediately hooked.
The cards went to the wayside and Dandylion Vines was created. I have since taken over our two car garage with my tools and work space. My signs are all handmade from picking out the perfect piece of wood to the final coat of sealer. I create a lot of my designs and use a stencil to apply them to the wood using chalk paint. I like to make people laugh so the majority of my signs are humor based.
I love and welcome the challenge of custom orders and am working on several designs that can be personalized for gifts such as wedding, anniversary, first home and baby.
My most popular sign is the lake sign with a compass and latitude/longitude coordinates. " - Sharon

"I was born and raised in Charlevoix, Michigan. I attended Brooks College for Women in Long Beach California, graduating from their Interior Design
I moved to Grand Rapids after college and worked at various jobs. In 1979 I
began an apprenticeship with Windemuller Electric, Inc. I earned an Electrical Journeyman’s license and Master’s license from the State of Michigan. I worked for Windemuller for 36 years, retiring as a construction superintendent.
I always enjoyed creating craft designs and sewing. After retirement, I began
making fabric purses to sell. Then I became hooked on fused glass! I now have two glass kilns and one ceramic kiln, taking over a large section of my
husband’s pole barn. I love to try new methods of working with glass. Now I try to sell my work to support my habit!"
