About

What do you do when you can't find a bag that suits you? You design your own.

In mid 2004, I was having a bit of a health crisis that kept me from doing my favorite craft, counted cross-stitch. I wandered into a quilting fabric shop, and as they say, the rest is history. My big sister and I had been spending countless hours together and apart, trying to find the "perfect handbag." She would find one she liked and buy two. We'd load them up, and ... be very disappointed. I'd do the same. I don't know how many times we did this, but after wandering into that fabric store, it occurred to me that perhaps I could create something that would be a good option, if not quite perfect. I made up a pattern, and hated it. So I took the pattern and reworked it.

And took it to a Fourth of July party. Nana Sadie Rose was born that night! I was completely surprised and pleased by the number of people who wanted that bag (the Mera, named for my daughter). I sewed and sold existing bags, and then agreed to do custom orders, and finally took them to craft shows.

It's been a love affair for the whole family - my daughter crafted my first website until she had too many children to make that a smart use of her time, and then I came to etsy. My sister and sister-in-law, and niece, too, on occasion, have all worked in the booth at craft shows and cat shows. The cat show circuit has always been a big niche market for me, as has been the knitting community. I was never able to go back to counted cross-stitch, but I picked up my needles again, and knitting has become my passion. So there are knitting bags, sock bags, needle cases, and sundries cases for every knitter's need.

Truly, this is a one-woman business. There have been a lot of helpers when things get crazy, but I sew every stitch, and mostly cut every piece. (I've had two or three friends help with cutting when a show is looming large!) Otherwise, it's the three kitties and me. They are in the shop, since the shop is in my house. So please know that before you buy.

    Owner, Designer

    I'm a full-time accountant for a nonprofit, but my passion is sewing and knitting. So with Nana Sadie Rose, I can do both. Nana Sadie Rose is the art of my heart.

  • The Meezer

    Assistant

    Our dearly departed first Sewing Assistant, We have muddled thru since her passing in July 2017. No one else has measured up to her high standards, but the three remaining staff try very hard. We miss you Miss Meezer.

  • The Tonk

    Assistant

    I'm the Ironing Assistant, but mostly I sleep. Unless I'm playing with something. I chase the pins Meezer drops. I'm trying to teach the Assistant in Training to do my job so I can sleep more.

  • Moji

    Assistant

    I'm the Assistant in Training because I haven't been here very long. Tonk says I'm better at his job because I watch and don't mind the steam. Nana Sadie Rose has to be watched, because she'll occasionally iron in a crease. I spot them for her.

  • Mimi Mignon

    Customer Service

    I came on board in August 2017. I’m not suited for work in the sewing room so Nana Sadie said I could work with you all!
