Ashley Brown Durand has a soft spot for all things old and historic, especially when it comes to the textiles and handcrafts of women from the turn of the 19th century. When she's not creating something new, she's probably rummaging through thrift shops, flea markets, and pouring over books about historic quilts or the Women's Suffrage Movement. Though she loves nature and being outside, she would much prefer to visit a history museum than go for a hike. 

Ashley learned to quilt and sew at a young age - a labor of love that has been passed down in her family for generations. She believes each piece created is an extension of the first time her mother taught her to stitch, and the first time that her mother's mother taught her and so on. This work is her history being passed on to you.
