Cindy Gray has been stitching and creating since she was a child. Influenced by her grandmother, a strong willed wife of a farmer. That Luzerne County, Pennsylvania farm sparked a passion for learning about the past, a love of the land and nature. Cindy continues seeking bonds with day to day life in the 18th and 19th centuries. Cindy's folk art, needlework, and toys are inspired by those women from bygone times, who created by candle light, for necessity, or for art or for love. All of her pieces are her design. Each is one of a kind, made from antique and vintage fabric.
Cindy Gray's work appeared in Dolls Collectors Magazine, Country Home, Southern Living Home For The Holiday, Early American Homes, and Early American Life. Early American Homes, working with prominent museums, seven times has listed Cindy Gray among the top 200 traditional work artisans. Cindy had the honor of making an ornament for the White House Christmas tree in 1999. I am so proud to offer Cindy's creations in my American Artist & Artisans store.
