Even Flea Puckett thinks it’s funny that her Etsy shop sells dog and cat quilts—but she’s had the name since childhood relatives couldn’t quite master “Felicia.” She has been sewing professionally just since 2007, and only recently let go of her full-time job in social services. From her smoke-free, dog-friendly workshop, she designs and then executes on a Husqvarna Viking Sapphire sewing machine. A current favorite: “Roll-It-Ups” drumstick bags, also sold in locally-owned Knoxville and Atlanta drum shops. Made of all-soft fabrics so they won’t scratch drum shells, the bags come in several fabrics, have a drum key pocket, and hold eight sets of sticks for overly enthusiastic performances. They, too, are inspired by a family member, this one of the two-legged variety, Puckett’s musician husband, who plays music for the same reason she sews: “to soothe the soul.”

Flea is the BOMB!!! If I played drums I would have a "Roll-It-Ups" right now. Drummers are lost without these!
