Cherie Killilea's Profile

About

Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started sitting at my mother's feet fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for the coming school year. I was known as a creative dresser. I wrote my first sewing pattern in 2006 as part of applying for a patent.

I am most excited about my new slipcovering class that you can find over at Craftsy.com. It is professionally organized and filmed. Students are creating amazing slipcovers with it. Here is a half price link to the class:

I am a featured contributor in Garth Johnson's book called 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse. It is inspiring, and makes a great coffee table conversation-starting book. A great gift for the creative people in your life. Here is the link to it:

I am just like you except I probably sew more.
I love giving and receiving handmade gifts. While I sew, I think about my project as a gift for my customer. Maybe that is why I love my made-to-order items, like the duffel bags, bridesmaid clutches, and changing pad bags...I get to go back in time to my own experiences traveling, getting married and having babies. Such precious times. I wish the same joy in the journey to the women who receive my products.

When I am writing a pattern, I am thinking about the kindred spirits who will use the pattern to make gifts of their own or start a cottage business.

Here is a sampling of what some of my customers have said:

"WOW! I couldn't be more thrilled with my custom duffle! It will be perfect to bring to the hospital when I have my baby. Thank you, thank you!!"

"The bridesmaid clutches are perfect! The craftsmanship is wonderful and Cherie is so great to work with. Always quick to reply, always prompt with mailing either the fabric swatches and quick to send the finished product. I recommend her very highly. Thanks Cherie!"

"Very clear instructions and great photos to go along with instructions. Great communication with seller. Thanks!"

I encourage you to check my shop periodically. I have quite a long list of products in different stages of launch. If there is something you would love to see me make, I welcome your input.
