Hi! I'm Amy.
When I was in my twenties, I accidentally started quilting. I'm serious. I went into a fabric shop looking for fabric to make curtains.... 2 hours later I came out carrying an armful of pretty fabric and a quilt pattern, having signed up for a quilting class. From there, it became an obsession. I made quilts for everyone I knew.
A few years (and four kids) later, I didn't have the time to keep up with my quilting, so my sewing machine took a rest.
We moved to Perth, Ontario and took over a small dairy farm. I was working at home milking, farming and parenting.
My creative juices started to flow again.
I made throw cushions from tartan fabrics and gave them to my family at Christmas. It quickly snowballed from there, and I started experimenting with little things that I could make that would bring people joy. At around the same time, I became interested in essential oils and their beneficial properties. When I received my first kit of oils, I had nowhere to keep them, so I created the essential oil pouch and the rollerball wrap... accessories that could store and protect my essential oils.
The rest is history.
Over the past 2 years, I've worked tirelessly to create The Plaid Cow, becoming known for quality, fun products that are useful and eye catching.
I hope you enjoy browsing my store - and thank you for shopping local!
