For the love of fabric and embroidery and family.

In 1999 after spending over 20 years working for national retailers in many capacities I decided to open Grandma Bessie's and name it for my material grandmother who was the driving force in my life, and my numerous brothers and sisters. She taught me the value of hard work and the love of sewing.

I initially focused on doing just craft shows, festivals, and fairs around the country. In 2008 my husband was diagnosed with stage IV cancer which made me slow down and do a couple of local shows and close down my newly established etsy site. In 2012 after losing him, I 're-opened the business and the site. I know many of you have been looking for items I sell at shows.

So as we promised our customers we are now ready to re-build our etsy site for all of them to shop and all others that discover us here , by hiring a site consultant who can keep it up for all of us. So watch us grow.

Watch us begin to build hi

    I have owned and operated Grandma Bessie's Custom Threadz since 1999, after leaving corporate America. I have done craft shows and fairs around the eastern seaboard since then.
