Home Goods Tulsa
A rewarding part of running our shop is choosing who we work with. We love working with local makers and other small businesses led by talented, positive and hard-working people. The vibrancy of each person we work with shows through in the home goods they make, and that, our friends, translates into good energy in your home.
Enter, Tasha Ball and her new fiber arts business, House Sparrow Fine Nesting. She’s been an avid fiber artist for many years now and recently made her items available to the public for purchase through our shop. We are so proud! So far, there are blankets, wall hangings and hanging planters.

Where are you from?
I grew up on the west side of the metro. I moved back a few years ago. When I go to town, I drive by the elementary school my grandmothers, my mother, and I all went to. Nearby is where the old cotton, steel, and glass mills where my grandparents and great-grandparents made their working lives. I’m proud to be from people who made their living by their hands. I’m grateful that I can make my life in the same place they made theirs. These characters, where they lived, and the things they loved often sneak into whatever I’m working on, whether it’s weaving, writing, or caring for my friends and family.
How long have you been working in the fiber arts? What is your history with them?
My husband is a smart man who often comes home with gifts for me. One night early in our marriage, my gift from him was a learn-to-knit kit. I wasn’t without prior instruction in the handcrafts. My grandmothers created sprawling and skillful works in crochet and quilting, and each taught me a thing or two. I studied textiles as part of my degree in American Studies at OSU, when I interviewed dozens of quilters in our part of the state about their work and its meaning. Even so, it took a detour through the arts-and-crafts aisle by a man who is much more at home on a thousand-yard rifle range to urge me grow into my inheritance.
