A lifelong passion for all things related to a needle has finally developed beyond a dream into reality. Berryhill Heirlooms was created out of Susie Gay's love of needlework, sewing and collection of antique needlework tools (not to mention her dedication to making jam out of different luscious berries grown on the family homesite: hence the company's name). Susie's blog, berryhillheirlooms.blogspot.com, has everything about her patterns, projects plus a few extra musings.

The newest pattern in the Berryhill Heirlooms family is The Notions Necessaire,a unique way to carry and store your sewing notions. It looks like a purse, but opens up to reveal: 2 long cases, pincushion, emery, needle book, double pocket and spool keeper. Check it out!

Berryhill Heirlooms offers patterns, kits, notions, antique needlework tools, linens and laces, and classes for the Heirloom Sewing and Crazy Quilting enthusiast. Susie is a teacher for the Smocking Arts Guild of America and Sewing at the Beach (a sewing and stitching convention in Myrtle Beach, SC) and an award-winning needle artist. Please visit our website often for new items, and additions to the show and workshop schedule, as Berryhill Heirlooms grows.
