5 years and still stitching....

When Debbie discovered a way to blend family ministry support with her quilting and sewing skills Sew Many Stitches was born.    Five years later, I am still discovering what can be made by recycling used neck ties, T-Shirts, antique linens, uniforms and leftover clothes. It is my hope that  the items created, bring you hours of joyful memories as they are used and shared in your home.   I am honored that you continue to share your stories and allow me to be a part of your life as you celebrate family milestones from cradle to grave. Hearing the stories behind the projects helps me to develop a means of telling your family story that reflects the occasion as well a the personality that continues to live through these memory quilts, pillows and memorial bears.
