Cindy McGarvey

My name is Cindy McGarvey and I have been doing some kind of crafting most of my life, from ceramics,  to sewing and crocheting. I am constantly learning new and exciting styles and techniques to make wonderful new things. My daughter Jessica Cretcher got me started doing craft events about 7 years ago. Through her I  met Ashlee McCaffrey. I  really enjoy interacting with the customers as well as the other vendors which made working at Festive Nesting a perfect fit for me.  

I  currently make many sewed items from aprons, pet items and stuffed animals as well as crochet hanging towels for the kitchen. But I am always finding new and interesting things to make.

If you don’t see exactly what you want, I am willing to take special orders, though they generally take significantly longer to fulfill. I encourage you to look over my work on display at Festive Nesting and contact me with any questions. “Try on” a coffee mug or two and find the best fit for your hand. They are all handmade right here in Orcutt!

Jessica Cretcher – In a Jam Homemade Items

   Growing up I did crafts in some shape or form, I guess that’s what you get when you are the granddaughter of an art instructor and the daughter of a crafty mother. One year I decided that I was making everyone’s Christmas gift, 10 aprons later I had friends and co-workers asking for their own custom apron! About a year later I decided I wanted to learn to make jams and jelly. My friend and I had a jamming day and I loved it! After about a year of practice and experimenting with different recipes I applied for my Cottage Food Permit and started selling it at local craft fairs. I still experiment with different crafting technics during my free time, but I think I have found my niche in jamming, sewing and crocheting. I welcome custom orders!
