Grace Statwick Studios

My name is Grace Statwick and I moved to DR in September of 2020. I support myself primarily with sales of my original artwork. I paint magical and colorful landscape scenes inspired by the natural and spiritual world, including the rolling prairies of Northeast Missouri. I love to paint highly personal dreamscapes; let me know if you’re interested in commissioning one!


Rabbit Feathers

Hi, I’m Mae, and I moved to Dancing Rabbit with my family in 2012. I love animals and have built a life around taking care of them as sustainably and ethically as possible. I also love reading, swimming, listening to podcasts while working outdoors, and engaging in spirited debate to further hone my intellect and wit. I sell cruelty-free feathers from our chickens, muscovy ducks, and turkeys. The birds are rotationally grazed and live outdoors and on pasture year-round. Their wings are unclipped and they are free to realize their full bird-ness through behaviors such as foraging, dust bathing, and natural on-farm chick rearing. Our birds are allowed to reach full maturity. We manage a laying flock of hens and process the roosters for meat. I wash the feathers and sell them for jewelry and crafts!

Mrs. Milkweed’s Jam & Pickles

Made in small batches with fresh local ingredients, our jam uses half the sugar of conventional jam for a delicious fruit taste. A few of our customers’ favorites, including Blueberry Vanilla Bean Jam and Cowboy Candy (sweet pickled jalapenos) are available until they sell out. We also create special flavors, such as Earl Grey Tea Jelly, for the holiday season.


Amish Quilting by Hand

In 2020, when the Milkweed Mercantile was closed to the public, I used the time to explore a long-held dream. I reached out to local Amish quilters and hired several of them to hand-quilt the many vintage quilt tops I’ve accumulated over the years. Amish hand quilting has long been the standard for excellence in quilting; when I received the quilts back the results were even more beautiful than I had hoped. The stitches are tiny, beautiful and consistent. I was surprised by how open and interested these women are to extend a hand of friendship and to expand their quilting businesses. I have learned that they always have a quilt on a frame, and stitch in any “down time” to supplement household income. We are happy to offer quilting services to quilters everywhere; we finish vintage quilt tops as well as contemporary tops. Arrangements are handled online, by phone and mail; our number one priority is your absolute delight. Please see our website for more information!
