About Us

“Follies and nonsense, whims and inconsistencies do divert me, I own, and I laugh at them whenever I can.”-Jane Austin, Pride and Prejudice

Born out of one woman’s need to keep her ever-expanding knitting needle collection under control, Folly and Nonsense began in October of 2011.  Everything is created individually by me (Heidi), in my home studio in Vallejo, California, under close supervision by Oz and Molly the shop chihuahuas.

A California native, I have been sewing, knitting, and creating wearable art in one form or another since I was a child. My passions for sewing, knitting, spinning, weaving and all things fiber-related have intersected to create the boutique offerings you see here.

Everything I make is unique and no two pieces in the same line will ever be exactly alike. I would love to work with you to create a piece that uniquely captures your sense of style, so please contact me if you have an idea! Some of the best inspiration comes from collaborating with my clients!
