I am a Finnish Karelian Canadian born maker.  I specialize in high quality handmade rag rugs and improv style quilts.  I also make keepsake rag dolls, fabric tote bags and baskets.  I love reclaimed, all natural materials and use them whenever possible.  I don't use commercial patterns--I design and create all my own products so each item is truly one of a kind.

You can find the things I love to make by visiting my online Etsy Shop at https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/LadogaStudio and Pinterest at https://www.pinterest.ca/ladogastudio/.

Ladoga Studio products are also sold locally at The Piggery Gallery, my brick and mortar artisan store located at 53 Wartman Road, Stone Mills Township, Newburgh, Ontario, Canada. Shop in person and save on shipping & online fees for all Ladoga Studio products sold at The Piggery Gallery.

Thank you for supporting handmade!


I love the challenge of making pretty things from reclaimed materials.
