Welcome to our website!!
To give a little insight into us, this quote is from our favorite book “The Secret Language Of Relationships”:
Workaholic tendencies seem inevitable in the Week of System Builders (Crowley)–Week of the Enigma (Jessica) professional relationship, but hard work is not the only norm here: these two usually get involved in projects they find interesting and absorbing in the extreme. Their relationship elevates their work to a position of primary importance, and their concentration on it is total.

Back to the story...
A long time ago in a parking lot far far away...
VA Beach 2003 The Dead parking lot, to be exact. Crowley with a 100 lbs of minerals and crystals, Jess with a few sewn bags and crocheted hats, teamed up!
Along the adventures of touring with the Dead and doing festivals we would hunt for fabric. Stopping in random towns and finding all sorts of cool fabrics to work with!
We spent that 1st year and a half criss-crossing the country with The Dead and Phish. Settling down that next winter in Truckee, CA where we worked. We would still tour in the summer, with a few items our friends made and a few of our own creations. It was a little bit of everything so we called ourselves Crowleys Corner.
When the big Crash of '08 hit Crowley lost his custom wood working job so we moved to Reno, which was much lower cost of living, and began Crowleys Corner full time. Adding upcycled tie dyes and oodles of other sewn items to our store. Turning Crowleys Corner into 100% made by us.
In 2010 we moved the workshop from Reno to the woods outside Lexington/Columbia SC. Grateful for some space and meeting a friend who is a sewing machine mechanic!! He would tease us about our Granny machines. Then he introduced us to The Highlead walking foot industrial Sewing Machine!! Then an industrial serger!! Tools make a world of difference! My Kenmore "granny" machine is still with us. Securing our tags, button holes, final steps of hats and other odd jobs it glides through!! Built to last!
In 2011 Yoda Mac hitched a ride with us in California and became our mascot and good buddy! He has retired mostly in his older years and enjoys vacationing with his Grandma and her good fur buddy Carly.
Since moving to South Carolina we have hibernated and created. When spring hit we would set up the shop at festivals, fairs, farmer's Markets and of course the shakedown st of Dead, Phish and Widespread Panic parking lots!
We enjoy finding homes for our creations in person!
To make our online sales special, Jess hand writes a postcard and includes a handpicked sticker to keep it personalized. If you want to send a gift, leave a message in the notes and Jess will hand write your message on a postcard.
Thanks for reading our story, we hope to meet you at the Jubilee!
Wishing you a Grateful Day!
