Morganton, North Carolina | 1,110 Sales

Announcement    Welcome! I specialize in one of a kind landscape and nature postcards featuring outdoor scenes. These handmade quilted fabric postcard art quilts can actually be mailed and when received, they can be framed. A card and gift all in one!

These little pieces of art make appreciated hostess gifts for under $20. Need wedding party gifts? These are the perfect solution. Each one can be customized to reflect the recipient's personality.

Most of the pieces in the shop are 4" by 6", some are 5" by 7" but I can make any size up to 11" by 14". I love the challenge of a custom order. I can customize using your photo.

Gift wrapping and shipping directly to the recipient of the gift is a service I gladly provide. Add a message when ordering or send a conversation through ETSY.

The quilted fabric postcards are made by adding layers of fabric to create the design and then stitching each layer. It's a multi step process. Each quilted fabric postcard is individually made.

About SewUpscale

Sales 1,110
On Etsy since 2007

Affordable small quilts that can be sent in the mail and kept forever.

When I first heard about Etsy, I joined as a buyer and later decided to add a shop. I first sold purses and children's clothing. Since I didn't like the first name I chose, after a few months, I opened a new shop with a new name. Thus, Sew Upscale was born in 2007. It took awhile for me to find my niche but when I started making the landscape quilted fabric postcards, I knew it was my market. In addition to Etsy, my postcards and are offered for sell at Hamilton Williams Gallery in Morganton, NC. In the past, my quilted magnet and postcards were sold in the gift shop at the Texas Quilt Museum and Mountain Made in Asheville, NC. My fabric art has been published in Art Quilting Studio Summer 2015, Winter 2019, and Autumn 2019 and Sew Somerset Winter 2018. I also made some artwork for RJR Fabric using Danscapes fabric that was used for advertising. I have many pieces on display at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

I am a one person operation and everything is handmade by me.

I have decided to add some vintage items so from time to time, I will have a variety of vintage items for sale.

Frequently asked questions
Can the post cards actually be sent in the mail?

Yes they can. The address can be written directly on the back of the postcard and then inserted into the clear vinyl mailer provided. It is better to have it hand stamped instead of sending through the machine. It costs about $1.00 to mail.

Can the postcards be framed?

Yes. They are 4” by 6” or 5” by 7” and fit nicely into a standard inexpensive frame.

I have a special photo. Can you do a custom piece for me?

I love doing custom pieces. If you have a photo you would like made into fabric, pleas send me a message.

Is your artwork original?

Yes, it is always my own design. I make one of a kind pieces. Sometimes the designs are similar but the fabric will be different.
