Announcement    I realized that materials I have collected over the years should be shared. The result, which was only an idea a week ago, has kept me busy this week.
Michelle, at Forget-Me-Knots in my hometown of Bandon, Oregon encouraged me to make kits with instructions and fabric. They are available to you on our Etsy shop. If you are on the southern Oregon coast, stop by Forget-Me-Knots in Bandon. Michelle now has them available.

We have been making and selling reverse applique sweatshirts since 1995, when the girls were 4th, 6th, and 8th grades. All three girls helped by sewing and cutting the shirts. The girls are grown but I still enjoy making each shirt.

I am very excited to share the love of creating!

We ship all of our shirts USPS Priority shipping. I make every shirt to order from small to 3X, which usually mails out in 2-3 days.

We will custom make any sweatshirt design in any size. Now we have added kits as well as blank shirt for those who want to sew these beautiful designs.

Just convo us your wishes, we and put the listing up for sale for you.

The Howard family has been in business for 28 years sewing over 2300 reverse appliqué sweatshirts with traditional quilt designs. We sew the sweatshirts then meticulously cut the sweatshirt material away to reveal the intricately beautiful designs.

Sewing shirts for 25 years

Twenty five years ago, when the girls were 10, 12 and 14 years old we started our reverse applique sweatshirt business.

At the time, my goal was to teach them how to sew while teaching them business. When we took sample shirts to the Bandon Mercantile, the owner said he would carry them if we would keep up with the sales. Our shirts were available there for many years. pleasing many. It was fun to see people wearing our shirts around town.

By the time the girls were 11, 13, an 15, we took samples to the head office of Made in Oregon in Portland. I sat back while the girls successfully presented the shirts to the buyers seated around the conference table. Made in Oregon sold our shirts for several years.

Fast forward to now. Our girls are 35, 37, and 39. I am still on the ranch making shirts to order.

A woman from Sacramento called last week to say that she bought her first shirt at the Big Wheel in Bandon, Oregon many years ago. Over time, she has purchased 11 of our shirts but would like to see more designs available.

Last week I listed some for her, and for you, to enjoy. I make shirts to order and ship them flat rate USPS Priority mail.

After teaching Language Arts for 20 years and coaching the Speech and Debate team at Bandon High School, I retired five years ago.

I love working with people to find just the right combination of fabric design and shirt color.

For the finest in sweatshirt designs, from our house to yours!!

Let me introduce myself. I am Ellen Howard and have been in business for 25 years sewing reverse appliqué sweatshirts with traditional quilt designs. We are members of the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, a quilt museum in Tillamook, OR. They have sold our shirts there for seven years.

We are a family of five, Rick and Ellen, with grown daughters Lucy, Joanna, and Erika. We (Rick and Ellen) live at our ranch up the Bear Creek near Bandon, Oregon. We have breed cows as well as have geese, ducks, elk, deer, coyotes, bobcats, raccoons, and an occasional cougar on the ranch. We love the outdoors, fishing, gardening, and crafts of all kinds.

We have been making the sweatshirts for 25 years and the shirts have been a delight to everyone who has one. We have sold over 2500 shirts in area stores with a perfect track record of satisfied customers.

We sew the sweatshirts then meticulously cut the sweatshirt material away to reveal the intricately beautiful designs. Each sweatshirt takes about an hour to sew, cut, and finish.

It is our goal as a family to do our very best producing every shirt and to please customers, which we have successfully accomplished for thirteen years. Our shirts are both elegant and comfortable, and we aim to extravagantly please everyone who wears one of our sweatshirts.

We use only the best JERZEES brand sweatshirts. We pre-wash the sweatshirts and the fabric to prevent shrinkage of the finished garment. All of our shirts have sewn in coordinating turtleneck collars for the finished look. The shirts are totally guaranteed to delight you!

Our T-shirts are Hanes Beefy-T shirts, and we sew our satin label onto the collar.
