"Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life." Proverbs 4:23.

This has been a key verse for the Smucker family to follow throughout the years since they have known the Lord and been in His service. It was out of this verse that the inspiration has come for the logo on their handbags.

Homespun At Heart is a small family-run business in the heart of Holmes County, located in Berlin, Ohio. In the winter of 2008 Mary Ann was looking for a simple tote bag to use as a diaper bag for her 16 month old son. She wanted something large enough to carry a diaper or two, a few accessories and her wallet. In her search she came across some handmade totes that immediately caught her attention. Because of her interest in sewing, she designed her own pattern which she used not only to sew a bag for herself but also for others. Being a homeschooling family, the Smucker's were always looking for things they could do together with their children, and before long, Mary Ann and her five daughters were all involved in this project.

Today they have expanded their line of unique handbags and added many new styles, colors and sizes. In 2010, the Smucker's opened a retail store in Berlin, Ohio where they sell their handbags and totes. Not only do they sell their products, they also sew in the same building, so if you visit their store you will likely be able to watch them as they sew. They are always happy to answer any questions you might have and to assist you in choosing a color combination for the purse of your choice!

It is their desire to raise their family to be an asset in the community they live in and to be diligent in the work of the Lord.
