Your grandmother’s table, the one that traveled across Pennsylvania and Ohio, over the Mississippi and the Plains, wrapped in a quilt and tied down in the back of the International. One of the few things she couldn’t leave behind on the big adventure that would pull her and your grandfather farther west than most people they knew would ever travel. They fell in love with Kalispell and never once looked back.
And 50 years later, she passed along the table to you. A wedding present. (You cried that day, and she did, too.) The gift was more than a table, of course. It was her story, their story, that good life they made. And there you were, stepping out into your own new life, as vast and wide open as anything she’d ever known.
You’d save that table in fire or flood, and rain hellfire on anyone who set a glass down on it without using a coaster. (It’s okay. We would, too.)
So we made these. For that table or your night stand or the first coffee table you bought together, because you take care of what you love.
Our Kalispell coasters are handknit using 100% cotton yarn that’s both sturdy and washable. The set of 4 comes in a handknit envelope decorated with a 1 1/2″ silver concho. (We think they make a great gift, too.) In oatmeal or toast.
