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 bundled them and sold my first set of The Perfect Bridesmaids®. Yes, the rest does feel like history. Since then, I have improved my listings, trademarked and copyright my products, and hired 2 assistants to help me.
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…
