Anne Riggs Designs will be hosting the August First Friday Art Walk event at The Merchant Company this Friday, August 2nd, from 4:00-8:00. Please join us for a glass of wine and some snacks and be sure to check out all the new vendors and new merchandise in the store.
Anne Riggs Designs is a small Maine sewing business based right here in Portland. Anne’s speciality is creating earth-friendly products that replace items that are typically used once and thrown away.
Using high-quality designer cottons, Anne’s reusable products include “paper” towels, baby wipes, breast/nursing pads, make-up/facial pads, snack and sandwich bags as well as cloth napkins. If you are one of a growing number who dry your laundry outside, you might need one of Anne’s clothespin bags.
In addition to all these practical items, Anne also makes girls’ dresses using simple but elegant designs.
