Stitches & Paint

Stitches & Paint started in 1992. In the beginning, I painted and appliquéd t-shirts, sweatshirts, and denim jumpers. From this came the name Stitches & Paint.

It all began when I made some appliquéd sweatshirts and took them down to the local fabric store. They wanted to display them and have me teach classes on how to make them. A friend suggested that I rent a booth and sell them at a local craft show. I did and received many orders. Since then, we have been participating in craft shows.

In 2005, we decided to change from clothing to quilted and chenille accessories. Since that time we have expanded and have Quilted Handbags and many accessories.

God has blessed my business and family through the years. It has been a real test sometimes with the long hours, but has all been worth it. So many wonderful people have followed us through the years. We enjoy seeing and visiting with each one of you at different shows.

If you wish to purchase our items to resell in a shop please contact us before purchasing them. Thank you.

    I started sewing in Jr. High. My dad told me if I sewed my own clothes, he would buy me all the fabric that I wanted. Needless to say, I did just that and have been sewing ever since. Stitches & Paint began in 1992, I started out making clothing.
