SewnByJo is taking a short break
All items are made lovingly by me. I work with old linens; sheets, napkins, tablecloths and gently used clothing and give them a new life. Some of the textiles are actual antiques, some vintage.
I recycle, repurpose, upcycle, reuse, remake - its too much fun not to! I lust after new fabric too. Dotted Swiss, Irish linen, dupioni silk - all sound like dessert names to me and make me drool.
I embroider because I must. I love the feel of the thread, the magic of a work in progress, the zen of of concentrated sewing, the joy of a completed piece of work.
I choose to make childrens' clothes because babies are pure joy, toddlers are a wonder and I want to see them in clothing that echos their inner beauty.
If you have a vintage linen or a piece of fabric you love I hope you will let me make something for you or your child.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I learned about the magic of sewing when I was very little. One morning my rag doll had new clothes! I had no idea one could MAKE things using bits of fabric and needle & thread. My mom taught me to sew simple things and I fell head over heels!
