Have you been to Thistle Cottage?

 It’s only a click away at Orsini Medici.  Elsie Collins, the owner, is a talented artist based in Rhode Island, who just finished costuming the play Triangle for Hope High School, in Providence.  The performances, and her pieces, move on to the Fringe Festival in Scotland in August.  Check out more info on her blog, thistle cottage studio. Elsie, inspired by the clothing of the period, (1911), created new shirtwaist blouses reflecting that period, that are now in her etsy shop.  No novice to fine art tailoring and costume design, Elsie currently teaches sewing, pattern design, just to name a few, and has been contributing to RI arts for some time, including Trinity theater, and more. Find out about her classes here.
