4 Cats Crafts

These pages give an overview of some of the crafts we have made. We’re not a business but we’ve been known to exchange the occasional item for money.

We have catnip mice, ebooks, quilts, walking sticks, and a new line of glass beads to show you here.

eBooks

The Romance of Mokelumne Hill

The first in a series of electronic books (PDF files) is a collection of stories transcribed from the Calaveras Weekly in the 1940s. They were written by my great grandfather, George Walter Pennebaker. I'm proud to present them here, the only place you'll find stories of old Mokelumne Hill in the California Gold Rush area.

If you'd like to read a bit more about these stories, or purchase a copy for yourself, that page is here.

About the Artists

Margaret Wing-Tassano has been making quilts for friends since the 1980s. She favors traditional designs and takes great care not only in the composition of her quilts but also in matching the colors and patterns to the intended recipient.

Michael Tassano grew up puttering about in the shop. Old habits die hard.
