Announcement   We will be on vacation until May 1st.

We will custom make any sweatshirt design in any size. Just convo us your wishes, we will make it, and put the shirt up for sale for you.

The Howard family has been in business for 19 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.

For the last six years, we have been members of the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, a quilt museum in Tillamook, Oregon. They have sold over 200 of our quilted shirts in their museum shop. www.latimerquiltandtextile.com

Jonna, one of our daughters, volunteered two years in Port Au Prince, Haiti, as a midwife with Heartline Ministries. After the earthquake, the ETSY Quiltsy group has sent 85 quilted pillowcases to encourage people in Port Au Prince through Heartline Ministries.

I started a Facebook group, We Support Heartline Ministries!!!, to spread the word. Heartline Ministries has been on the ground for 20 years. They are building a women's maternity center for their very successful women's program, which offers prenatal care, safe birthing, and child development classes for Haitian. If you are on Facebook, I would love to be friends.

I have decided to donate the proceeds of every Heart design sweatshirt or t-shirt to Heartline Ministries for the ongoing work with the women of Port Au Prince.


Birthday present? Not to worry! Let me know and I will wrap it for you :)

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 nineteen 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 geese, ducks, elk and deer on the ranch. We love the outdoors, fishing, gardening, and crafts of all kinds.

We have been making the sweatshirts for nineteen years and the shirts have been a delight to everyone who has one. We have sold over 2300 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 between 45 – 55 minutes 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.
