About the Owner
Hi, I'm Stephanie! My background is in marketing and web design but when I was expecting my second daughter, I decided to learn to sew. I was hooked from the first stitch! I was working from home as a graphic designer and started an Etsy business on the side. Eventually, I started selling fabric as well. I love teaching others to sew and I started releasing patterns and tutorials on my website and teaching at local shops. Last year, I decided to pursue this business full time and open a brick and mortar location so I could set up my own classroom and expand the fabric I offered. I have lived in Melrose my whole life, and I knew I wanted to open my shop here.
I have been very encouraged by the response, especially from kids! My goal is to make it easy to learn to sew. For most classes, students can just show up. We have all of the machines, tools and materials needed for classes. People can learn to sew without making a costly investment in supplies. Please feel free to stop in and check out the shop, even if you don’t sew. We also have a variety of handmade gifts, so there is something for everyone. Our motto is Shop, Learn, Make!SaveSave
