Frosty Days


Frosty Days is a mother/daughter collaboration established in 1997. We originally focused on sewing mittens and hats from polar fleece to make a little extra money for Christmas. (We feel our double reversible mittens are the Cadillack of mittens. -check them out!) Now we have expanded to a larger line of products, including felted scarves.


Statement from Carol Riley:

I started sewing by age 9 through 4-H making my first apron. My mother then taught me more advanced sewing in my teen years. By college I was sewing my own dresses for special occasions with my high school graduation present, a Singer Featherweight sewing machine. One of my new passions is fiber arts. I'm making Nuno technique felted items. This is a wet felting technique. I have started a small flock of sheep to provide my own fiber. The nature of these items make each piece very unique.


Statement from Jan Kawryga:

I began sewing on a treadle machine as a teenager, and didn't get my first electric machine, which I bought from a door-to-door salesman, until I was married. Some of my most pleasurable moments have been sewing "princess" dresses for my granddaughters.
