Twin sisters: Sara and Kristina

Sartina: Italian for Seamstress

We’ve been sewing clothing, quilts, home décor and bags since we were kids, and have dabbled in crafts from all the aisles of the hobby store.

Growing up, we were always together. We went to the same college, graduating with different majors, Kristina with a BS in business and an “M.r.s.” and Sara with a degree in English. Kristina birthed her first child and first family business the year after graduation. Sara went on to work in the publishing industry for 10 years and joined Kristina in the rank of SAHM in 2009. We are both thrilled to finally be mothers together.

Sartina: Italian for Seamstress

We’ve been sewing clothing, quilts, home décor and bags since we were kids, and have dabbled in crafts from all the aisles of the hobby store.

Growing up, we were always together. We went to the same college, graduating with different majors, Kristina with a BS in business and an “M.r.s.” and Sara with a degree in English. Kristina birthed her first child and first family business the year after graduation. Sara went on to work in the publishing industry for 10 years and joined Kristina in the rank of SAHM in 2009. We are both thrilled to finally be mothers together.

{So}Sartina’s beginning was fueled by Kristina’s confidence gained by watching her entrepreneurial husband. If he could be so bold, why not she? And why not combine talents with her sister? So Kristina began by designing a fun bag for her new netbook. Once she started she couldn’t stop.

We must admit a certain amount of (fun) twin competition exists in our creative endeavors, which we now use to our advantage as our strengths enhance each other. We are excited, now that we are both stay-at-home moms, to be on this venture together. As craft fads come and go, we always seem to find ourselves bent over our trusty sewing machines again.

Sartina is obviously a merging of our names. It also happens to mean “Seamstress” in Italian – which would be even cooler if we weren’t Norwegian!
