How did Sewphisticated Handcrafts originate?

Sewing is my passion. With my mother’s wonderful guidance, I made my first doll at the age of six. When I was ten, my mom’s best friend Marcella guided me through a surprise dress for my mom for Christmas. I always wondered why that dress fit so perfectly. With these two sewing experiences and many more in between, my love of selecting fabric and creating a finished product developed.

From 1985 to 1997, sewing took a back seat while I operated a gift and ice cream shop in Chocorua, NH. I loved every minute of running my businesses. However, in the summer of 1997, I came to the realization that something was missing from my life – it was the sewing. With the arrival of fall, I went on a fabric buying trip, then sat down at my sewing machine and started creating the products that I had been thinking about for many months. In January 1998, I shipped my first order.

In 2002, I sold my gift and ice cream shop and put my full energy into Sewphisticated Handcrafts.

Sewphisticated Handcrafts extensive product line is carried by many specialty gift shops from coast to coast.

I hope you will consider purchasing Sewphisticated Handcrafts American made products from unique fabric combinations.
