Announcement   A shop dedicated to custom, personalized sewing and embroidery.Think embroidery is only for monogrammed shirts, hankies with flowers, and tea towels with birds?
Think again.
I am retro girl with a special panache for robots, monsters and skulls.

I source many of my embroidery designs from UrbanThreads.com
If you would like to design a custom item, please check out UrbanThreads.com and let me know how to customize a special piece just for you. If you don't see a background fabric you like in my current listings, check with me for what else I might have available.

And just because something is listed as a pouch or pillow doesn't mean it couldn't be a onesie or a hand towel. Message me to discuss the special item you have in mind.

From time-to-time Darn It Sew What is a family affair with my mom, Anita, assisting with shipping, sewing, and design consultation.
She’s a real star – her crafting and sewing skills were honed during many years in 4-H and leading 4-H.

We have a sneaky dog and two lazy cats, but they really aren't helpful when it comes to sewing. We keep them out of the studio as much as possible.
Our home is smoke-free and our garden is full of fabulous flowers.
Does life really get any better?
Well, yes...it does get prettier with my hand-made collections.

About

Sewn with attitude. Embroidered with moxie.

Darn It! Sew What? started out as bags crafted by a knitter for knitters. I got my start at a little vendor market organized by my knitting group here in Des Moines. I practically sold out of everything I had made for the show and knew I was on to something. The banker who helped me open up my business accounts even liked what I was doing and helped confirm I was on the right track.

I've started to venture out into other items like pillows and I have far more ideas than I have time it seems.

I have a special affinity for Liberty of London fabric and imported Japanese textiles, so check back regularly – as many items will be unique and one-off opportunities for you to treasure.

Follow me on Twitter @darnitsewwhat for real-time trend setting and to keep up on my latest additions.

I love working on custom orders. Please contact me if there is something special I can craft for you.

    I love all things crafty from knitting to weaving to sewing. I also love photography and traveling. I keep a keen eye for exiting and eccentric fabrics. I even managed to come across a small store selling vintage linens while traveling in Norway.
