It all began long long ago when I was just eleven…a nurse gave me an old (but dependable) sewing machine. I started by making pillowcases and it escalated from there.
Fast forward ten years and I’m making baby quilts, clothes and other baby necessities.
When my aunt joined a great company called It Works still a couple years later, she asked me to design a strap to make things easier for her business. That’s when the wrap strap was born and I began to sell them in 2010. The Wrap Strap business slowly evolved into a baby wear business. When customers asked me to create an item I had no pattern for, I made my own. It was in 2013 that I created and sold my first pattern, Beanstalk Britches, after a strong push from a sewing group I was active in. The outpour of support that I constantly receive from customers, testers, and my admin is what led Stitch Upon a Time to what it is today.

I’m Jennifer, mother to one boy, Jase, since March 2012, and one girl, Ginnevieve, since September 2016, wife since 2017, and happily a small business owner since October 2010. Sewing and Photography are my biggest passions, along with teaching, helping, and problem solving. I’m so happy to tie a neat bow around all that I love using Stitch Upon a Time as the ribbon.

    Your patterns have never failed and are so easy to follow with their clear directions. Looking forward to see what you have in store for the next patterns!

  10. I love these patterns. THANK YOU for the FREE Magnolia… big help to those of us outside the US.

    By the time I paid the conversion fee and the overseas bank charge, the cost was the same as full price. WHAT a delight to have the discount and free pattern mean I paid the same as anyone purchasing in the US…..
