Why “Orange You Glad”?
Because orange is my favorite color! And who doesn’t love a good knock-knock joke?
Owner, Haley Nagy, was professionally trained as a visual artist and received an MFA in Interdisciplinary Book & Paper Arts in 2012. There she learned to make paper with a Hollander beater, and mould and deckle, as well as how to bind one-of-a-kind artist books. After graduation, her interests rapidly migrated from books to textiles as she soon realized that fabric and thread also have a story to tell. As it turns out, many of the specialized tools and skills required to create a handmade book translate directly to sewing and quilting. (Accurate measuring, bone folders, awls, rotary cutters and how to properly turn a corner!) And so, from her love of all crafts that require pins, needles or thread, Orange You Glad Studio was born.
Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind and contains locally sourced, “up-cycled” fabric. We also offer lovingly restored vintage quilts, fabric and sewing notions that have been rescued from basements, closets and attics throughout Pennsylvania.
