Even the box is stamped and decorated, letting you know something great is inside. Once opened, you’ll see a sprig of thyme and an artist’s card telling you a bit about themselves and the gift inside.
This set of cloth napkins is made by Katie and Nick Forte, the faces behind June & December. Hand sewn from flour sack cotton and printed with colorful garden herbs, these cloth napkins are pretty and designed for everyday use.

This January, our Rosemary subscribers received an item full of bright bold patterns, balanced with neutral tones and gold accents, all wrapped up in thoughtful packaging and delivered directly to their mailboxes.
Our artist for January is September Skye and the package is wrapped to give you just a hint of what is in store. We love the tag and the splash of color mixed with classic craft paper.
As always, each package has an artist card to tell you more about the creative minds behind each and every item. Debbie, the owner of September Skye, makes her items and sells them in shops as well as on Etsy. Named after her children, Debbie make bags, purses and accessories for women, boys and girls.
