About AuntieEmsCrafts

Sales 5,807
On Etsy since 2012

A love of sewing was passed from mother to daughter...

I have a love for all things crafty. My mom started teaching me how to make crafts at an early age. We were low income growing up, so she made many things to sell at craft shows for extra income. I tried following her lead by selling homemade bracelets, earrings, and other things on the school bus in elementary school. :-) Now, my mom and I both sew on a regular basis because we really enjoy the hobby. I started quilting at the age of 16. I bought some pre-cut squares from Benjamin Franklin Crafts and made a patchwork throw. It is really ugly but I keep it around to remind me of where I started. Today, I love using pre-cut fabrics as a way to enjoy all of the choices in a fabric line. Designers have really come a long way—and so have I.

After quitting a stressful job in November 2012, I have become a stay at home mom and wife. It was at that time that I stopped being a quilter and became a seamstress. I still enjoy quilting, but I like learning how to make other things as well: purses, baby accessories, aprons, mug rugs, etc. I love to go into my sewing room and make beautiful things in my free time. It truly is my happy place!

My mom was my sewing buddy in Illinois, but we moved away to Utah in May 2013. We now live close to my sister in laws who are also crafty. We love getting together and making things for their blog Simply Notable. I love to share with them my love for quilting, and they are able to share their talents with me.

Now that my son is six, he has taken an interest in using a sewing machine. I am sure that I will enjoy teaching him... just as my mom did when I was six. :-)

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


Payment for custom orders must be received before I will begin making the item(s).

Utah residents, I am a licensed business so I must charge 6.75% sales tax on your purchase. Thank you for your understanding.


I will ship your package in the most economical way possible. Most items in my store will go out USPS First Class Parcel. I do not add insurance to the USPS shipments on my own. If you would like to add insurance (recommended on quilts), please ask. If you need the order expedited, please request upgraded shipping.

Once your order leaves my residence, I can assume no further liability.

If you would like to purchase multiple items from my shop, I will figure up the exact shipping charges for your order and put it into a private listing... all you have to do is ask!

International customers: I do not mind shipping internationally. Please send me a message with your zip code to ask for a shipping quote if your country is not listed in the shipping options. The shipping costs listed are estimates. In the event I have underestimated shipping costs, the buyer is responsible for paying anything above 10% difference. Shipping charges exceeding $1 will be refunded to your account. Etsy has no way to confirm international addresses. It is the buyer's responsibility to provide the correct address. In the event the order is returned to me due to an incorrect address, the buyer will be refunded the order amount minus shipping.

Additional policies and FAQs

Most orders will leave my residence within 2-4 business days if the item is in stock.
