We are the makers of the original felt Saint softie. Started by our founder, Erin, we are a caring team with a desire to make quality products that nurtures faith. Erin has been making felt Saints on Etsy for over 10 years and has had her Saint softies featured in the New York Times.

We live in a world where everything is made by machine and processed in an assembly line fashion.  Machines have provided the ability to produce items faster and make larger profits for companies. However, not enough attention is paid to detail, quality, or the work environment.

We chose to do something better. We do not focus on the amount of money we can make, but on how many lives we can impact.

We want something bigger than us. We want to use our God given talents to create a product with high quality craftsmanship that not only provides employment to our team, but fosters a devotion to the Saints for our family of customers. 

Our designs are always made with quality materials. We use wool blended felt and polyfill made in the USA, embroidery floss made in France, and thread made in Germany.

There are no assembly lines here, just a warmhearted team striving for excellence in a caring work environment for the greater glory of God. It is hard to believe, but true; we choose not to make decisions off of dollar signs, but spiritual rewards.

We pray together, create together, and ask for blessings from God for all of you.

There was this woman, with a love of the Saints and gifted by Our Lord in sewing and all things creative.  She was blessed by God, with the idea of creating these Saints she so loved in a form she could sew and made of felt. These felt Saints  were something more palpable, and soft for wee hands, and gentle enough to to be comforted with in slumber. She diligently made these lovable Saints with the desire to teach their stories to all of those who would listen.  She knew that many loved the Saints, but even more could grow to love them in this new form and most especially when they learned the stories of their lives.  Her desire to bring to creation even the obscure Saints that have not even been pictured in books or statues she knew would aide in the belief of their heroic holiness and a willingness to ask for their intercession. Aided by her patroness St. Anne, and the patroness of her shop St. Rose of Lima she continues to this day to propagate the Faith, and share the virtues of these holy heroes and role models in creation of the Saintly Silver Felt Saint Softies.

Erin is an active member of a Latin Mass Community in the Kansas City area. She has been married for over 25 years, has 5 children, and two grand-children.
