CraftyStitches was created on the dining table of my little apartment. A co-worker in the office asked me to make a jewelry roll to carry her jewelry for a trip to Africa. I started cutting, sewing and made 3 jewelry roll examples for her. Since she was in London, I had to somehow sell it to her online. I created my own etsy website, took pictures, and listed the items online. She loved them and bought 1 roll. I had 2 left and need to sell them.

I love to sew. My sewing machine makes me feel invincible. I can do anything on my sewing machine. I was introduced to sewing through my fashion production family. My mom worked in a knitting factory, my father was a tailor and my grandmother sewed in a sewing factory. I grew up sewing all sorts of stuff out of the left over fabrics of my mom's factory stuff. She had me cut the threads and help out on production.

CraftyStitches is a passion that has grown in ways I never dreamed. I have 2 assistant seamstresses and they are fabulous ladies who are talented crafters. Thank you for checking out my shop and I look forward to continuous crafty designs. Be patient with us as we grow this wonderful little home-based business. Thanks for supporting an artful economy. Look where a 2nd-hand 20 yr old Bernina sewing machine got me? Yep I still have this baby.
