Hello, I’m Creative Christie, and I’d like to tell you how I got started making unique, soothing, therapeutic buckwheat pillows for adults and children!
In 1992, I received a buckwheat pillow from one of the parents of a child I was teaching. It was a plain muslin pillow which worked magic on my arthritic joints. In 2000, I was diagnosed with lupus, and understood why I had joint pain for so many years. After 7 1/2 years on dialysis, and finally receiving a kidney from an altruistic, beautiful woman, I got this idea to help others also get natural relief from their aches and pains by making my own buckwheat pillows. I love cotton fabric, and sorry to say, I’m actually addicted to it! Fabric is my palette. I learned to sew traditional quilt patterns, and piece together different fabrics, using these quilt patterns, variations of them, or my own designs. I never make the same pillow twice. Most of the 100% cotton pillow covers are lined with cotton muslin or repurposed cotton.and all covers are removable for easy washing. The inner buckwheat pillow, made from cotton muslin, is not washable. The adult pillows may contain herbs, such as organic lavender, sage, pine,chamomile or other herbs. Not everyone likes scented pillows, so I make them without scent too!
Each Creative Christie pillow is unique, one-of-a-kind, and each pillow is manufactured by me, alone.
My goal is that my buckwheat pillows will give you relief from physical pain, and soothe your spirit at the same time!
I love to sew!
Neck and Back buckwheat pillows (the inner whole seed buckwheat neck/back pillows are divided into sections (2, 3, 4, or 6) for comfort and even distribution of buckwheat.)
Multi-Purpose pillows (for knees, legs, arms, shoulders, for cramps, etc.);
Buckwheat-Rice-Flaxseed (Microwave Neck/Pet)pillows bring relief to aching joints in humans and pets. (Great for necks, shoulders, hips, backs.) They are not lined with cotton.The inner pillow is divided into 3 or 6 sections. Sections are indicated.
Buckwheat Heating Pads are filled with buckwheat seeds, flaxseeds, and rice. The inner pillow is not divided into section, nor are they lined. The buckwheat-flaxseed-rice moves freely about, as does my Multi-Purpose pillows.
