About

Designed by Constance is a line of artistically inspired clothing designed by Constance Beck of Appalachian Threads.  Originally opened in 2002, Appalachian Threads featured handspun yarns from fibers of local Alpaca sheep and Angora Goats. The fibers were then spun and hand woven into hats, scarves, and historical throws.  Demonstrations and classes, as well as equipment were sold in the Adamsville store.

After many years in a retail location, I decided to expand my horizons by doing high-end craft shows and creating a web site.  In 2006, my website appalachianthreads was created.  Recently we realized that our customers want a more interactive web site where they can see what I am doing on a daily basis and see the new designs being created.

It is with pride that the new Designed by Constance website/blog is now ready for you to discover.

Designed by Constance is a line of shawls, wraps, and scarves created exclusively for you by me.  You have the opportunity to buy these gorgeous rayon and natural fiber  items as seen or you can actually help to design your own.  You have the option to choose your own colors, fibers, and trims as well as choose whether you want a plaid, stripe, or a rainbow hand painted look.

Venture in to see where we are now showing the latest creations with our calendar, or sign up for a class.  Come back as often as you would like to read my blog, see what I am currently working on or to ask a question. Follow my links to see where our local artists are showing their wares as well, or to join one of the Associations that I belong to.

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to meeting you out here in cyberspace or at one of my shows.
