ORIGINAL HANDMADE ARTS & CRAFTS
Debbie & Richard Emery
6144 Buckshot Lake Rd, Plevna ON
Richard takes logs with a hollow centre, slices them with a chain saw into 1” thick donuts then sands and seals them to make unique “Forest Frames”. Over the past few years, he has mounted several of his high quality pictures in these natural frames, making a unique gift. Some he has added battery operated clockworks to, creating a one of a kind clock. He also sells frames and a mounting kit so his customers can mount their own special photo in a one of a kind frame.
Debbie began hand sewing at around 8 years of age making doll clothes. Over the next 8 years she learned how to use a sewing machine, how to hand embroider and at 12 years old made a skirt for herself without a pattern. She has sewn for herself and others over the years. An elderly friend taught her how to hand quilt around 1986.
Debbie has made over 100 quilts in the past few years and has recently created her own quilt design entitled “My Spring Garden”. In 2015 Debbie purchased a long arm quilting machine allowing her to free motion quilt stunning designs on her quilts.
