About

Sheri Sew Sweet Story

Creating and crafting has been a part of my life ever since I can remember. My mom taught me to sew on a wonderful 1960s ZigZag Singer sewing machine and she is always inspiring my creativity by calling me weekly with ideas to try. I just wish I had time to try all her suggestions! I've been in the retail/ecommerce space for over 20 years. My husband and I bought a retail store in the early 1990s, and before we sold it, I had made 1/2 of the store into a gift shop that made 50% of the profits. It grew from a little 5' corner to almost totally overtaking the store square footage.

Finding Etsy was a wonderful outlet for me to put my creative ideas into one place. I opened my shop in September of 2010 and was so excited to have a sale in the first 24 hours of opening my shop! I began making burlap banners towards the end of 2010 and keep adding more burlap products monthly. Being featured on Extreme Home Makeover TV show and Bride's Magazine AUS, have been two of my biggest Etsy career highlights.

All my products are handmade by me in my studio. Our dog, Zoe, loves to come and hang out here too! Because burlap is so fibrous, my house, clothes, shipping tape, etc.... are covered in burlap fibers! I go through a lot of lint rolls! :)

You can purchase with confidence from SheriSewSweet. Here's a little about my process.
*I begin by purchasing good, tightly-woven burlap. I inspect each bolt before purchasing to be sure it is of good quality and can handle the painting process.
*Next I iron out the wrinkles and cut the burlap to the size and shape needed for orders. I use a self-healing cutting mat and rotary cutters to get nice straight cutting lines
*Banner flag edges are lightly treated to prevent extreme fraying. Banners then get their top flaps ironed down and prepared for sewing
*Banners are sewn onto jute string with a zig zag stitch to keep them securely in place
*Pillows are fully lined and machine sewn with matching thread
*Banners are painted and glittered very carefully. I'm very particular that all my letters are straight so your banner will look professionally completed
*Glitter is treated to help reduce glitter shed
*Pillows are nicely stuffed with polyfill and hand-sewn up carefully
*Orders are then gently placed into their shipping packaging with a business card
*I'm always happy to gift wrap and attach a note/card for free
*Shipping is fulfilled through USPS Priority mail so your item is trackable and arrives quickly after shipment.
*Then I love to hear back from customers with pictures of how my products were used

I'm thankful for this opportunity to use my Etsy income to help with my children's college tuition. Seeing them happy and being able to help them is extremely important to me.

My favorite things are hearing the stories of those who need custom work and receiving pictures from customers who have decorated with my products. It makes me so proud to know that I deliver items that are high quality and that they will be proud to display them at their events.

A few of my favorite orders have been sending several star banners to a huge USO party in California for some of the first soldiers coming back from Afghanistan, making custom made pillows for the names that grandchildren called their grandparents, and seeing the lovely blog from a beautiful wedding in France that featured several of my banners and over 600 feet of plain banners that hung from roof to roof over a cobblestone driveway that held the wedding's luncheon.

I hope I can continue to design and bring great products to my customers for a long time to come!
