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.
