Owner / Master Designer Bonnie Z
From fiber art to flowers is not such a great leap. Both involve color, texture and fiber. Bonnie has degrees in textiles from California College of the Arts and The School for American Craftsmen. She spent many years creating for galleries, museums, shops and juried shows in Cleveland, New York, Boston and the Bay Area including Obiko which was on of the first wearable art galleries in the country. Gardening, however, was her obsession and when she ran out of room in her Point Richmond garden, her family moved to 6 acres in Healdsburg. After removing the existing vineyard, the plan had been to grow specialty vegetables in summer and continue with textiles in the winter, but farming became a full time occupation. Along with the beautiful fruit and vegetables we were providing for restaurants and caterers, we were also growing flowers. Needless to say, the flowers started edging out the vegetables. After a few years Carrie Brown, owner of Jimtown Store, asked us to provide arrangements for a wedding and that's how it all started.
