About

The Story of Kimmy Sews

The shop just started as a Blog, with the plan to make it into a business once my children headed off to school. My life has continued to stay busy but I have moved my business more to the foreground as they are getting older.

Maybe it is the years growing up seeing my mom sew and then having her teach me. Maybe it was just playing with the different types of materials she had like silk, cotton, polyester and firs that have made me really enjoy the world of Fiber Art (Sewing, Dyeing, Crafting, Felting). I had grown up in a home full of the traditional almost pioneer life where cooking on the fire place was done during the winter with wood that my dad brought home and chopped and cut, socks were darned while sitting and watching TV by the fire place. Christmas brought at least a bit of hand made clothing and one time a pile of wood that was to be turned into a night stand. The gift of learning to sew was something that I fought sometimes but once I got the hang of it I was very happy to have it. My mom taught me not to be afraid of the ripper and to do the best job you can on an item that you are making. She also taught me to try new things and I have continued to be open to doing that.

I have loved the world of Fiber Art and the great feeling of seeing my work around different places. It is truly rewarding when I think of the people who have honoured me by buying item or liked items enough to let me know by clicking like or favorite my shop.

    I am a mother of 4 finally taking a bit of time to start a business. I have been sewing for the last 27 years and just picked up Tie Dyeing a few years ago. I love both of these creative forms as they really work well together.

Additional policies and FAQs
Fabric care:

Dyed items should be washed with like colours in cold or warm water. Though I have washed the items several times please know that sometimes colours can run for a couple more washes. With proper care though tie dyed items can look great for many years. Due to the quality of the dyes I use and the amount of times they have been washed they do not tend to run in the laundry. If you leave them in water for a long time they may bleed a little of their extra colour though.

For items made with laminated cotton please do not machine wash as the plastic will come off of the cotton. All they really need is a wet cloth or quick wash in the sink.

Though most of the items in my store are washed in a mild detergent it is best to
wash it before it is first worn if you are sensitive to various detergents.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I do accept custom orders for shirts, bandanas and other easy to clothing styles. If you have a large order you will have to put a deposit on the order before I start on it. With small orders of $75 or less you are welcome to wait until the order is finished. Custom orders not with no deposit will be held for 30 days after notification of completion and listing. If the order goes unclaimed it is up for grabs unless you make arrangements with me for a later date.
Orders through Made to Order listings must be paid before shirt is dyed.

Gift wrapping and packaging

At this time I do not do gift wrapping or packaging but hope to add it before November.

Custom and personalized orders

I am able to do up to a 4inx4in embroidery on some items. My designs are stock designs as I do not do digitizing. While most listings do not allow customization it could be added for a fee. If you are wanting customization of an item it will become non returnable so be clear of what you would like. There will be Conversations sent back and forth so be sure to watch for new replies so your order can be filled in a timely manor.
