ANGIE 5.jpg

Angie Parkins - Textile Artist

Angie is an "upcyclist", having discovered the pleasure of upcycling (taking something old and used and making it something new and, better) by repurposing wool sweaters, leather, tee-shirts and fabric clothes. Thrift store rejects are her treasures, just waiting to be reinvented into something new, and in turn diverting waste and lessening the environmental impact on our earth. Hence the name "Tread Lightly".

Angie makes mittens; bags, fingerless "texting" mittens; neck warmers; headbands and hats; coffee cozies; infinity scarves, brooches (from sweaters and the leftover zippers); cushions, slippers, and much more.
