Our Story


Hi there!  I'm Angela.  I'm a classically trained oil painter whose love of color and stitching led me into the world of hand dyed fibers. I started Colour and Cotton in 2016, and my shop now offers a wide palette of sampler threads, stranded and perle cotton, and stitching fabrics, all hand painted in small batches in my home studio here in St. Louis, MO.  I have two sweet pups and stitching buddies, Frankie and Scooby. 
  
My dream of one day opening a brick-and-mortar needlearts shop in my hometown of St. Louis is never far from mind, and my favorite part of this experience has been meeting and building friendships with a lovely community of crafters an artists from all backgrounds.
  
Thank you for your support of this little idea of mine.  If you want more behind the scenes antics from Frankie and Scooby, and have a sneak peek into our days, follow us along on Instagram!
