We are a mother and daughter team that loves to sew, quilt, knit & create original designs. We hope our love of fabric and yarn is reflected in our handmades, which we manage to make when we're not laughing.

Why did we name our shop "Two Girls Laughing"? Well, here is the story written by my daughter Jenny for all of you who have asked.

I can't think of an occasion when my mom and I were together that didn't either start or end with laughter. Even when we're annoyed and frustrated (not necessarily at each other ), we can make each other giggle.

One occasion in particular involved dreaming up a name for our joint knitting and sewing ventures. We wanted something that captured not just the essence of our products, but the essence of our relationship. While sitting in mom's sewing room we wandered down many strange avenues of names with very little direction or luck, but laughing at the silly things we came up with. I remember something about a fat quail; or maybe it was a fat hen. Regardless, ideas weren't fruitful, but laughter was plentiful. My dad came in mid-way through our conversation, heard us giggling and quibbling over a store name, and commented from the other room, "Why don't you just call it "two girls laughing". Of course it was perfect, and we all knew it immediately.
