Closing Sojourn Quilts

The time has come to close Sojourn Quilts on Etsy. A "sojourn" is a resting place" and this shop has served me well. My deepest, heartfelt thanks to SQ customers and friends. I am off on a new creative adventure with my friend and business partner, Christina. We are making hand-printed organic linen tea towels and other cool kitchen accessories.

Out with the old...

In with the new...

Please do come visit us at our shop Madder Root and follow us on our blog.

Thanks again, friends, and happy journeys!--Janyce

Introducing...Madder Root Recipe Cards

While Christina and I have mostly worked on tea towels over the past month or so, this week we expanded our Madder Root product offerings to include recipe cards.

Whether it's a new recipe or a treasured family favorite these charming hand printed recipe cards are a perfect addition to your kitchen. All cards are printed on 100% recycled paper. At 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" they are large enough for any recipe and folded in half they will fit in a standard 4"x6" recipe box.

Each card is hand printed with water-based non-toxic inks. Slight variations in placement and color add to the charm.

We will be adding more designs and colors soon!

For more information about our recipe cards, tea towels or scarves, please visit our shop.
