Lisa Goad started The Hanky Shoppe — based in Maplewood, New Jersey — after not being able to find a quality, monogrammed handkerchiefs to replace ones she’d given her husband as an anniversary gift years earlier. The realization that finding beautiful — and fun — embroidered items was becoming quite a challenge led her to pull out her sewing machine and learn the art of embroidery. At that moment she knew she’d found her passion!
Her collection for Maker + Muse focuses on humorous, tongue-in-cheek sayings embroidered on linen cocktail napkins or on flour sack dish towels. Each one features detailed illustrations that combined with the fun phrases have been making our customers chuckle and, yes, even LOL!
