Our Story

Stitch Ups was founded in 2001 as an outlet to share my original designs of hand crafted textile and fiber products. My products range from pillows, purses, tote bags to backpacks, socks and finger-less mittens. My purses and bags are my own designs and created from custom quilted fabrics while our fiber products are created from custom hand dyed yarns.

My love of sewing and knitting started when I was young. My grandmother was seamstress specializing in hand sewing Japanese Kimonos. Through her I learned the joys of creating patterns for my own designs, and to bring them to a finished product. Later, I had the opportunity to attend a number of fabric and fiber symposiums In Salem Massachusetts and Williamsburg Virginia.

Employee of the Month

There is nothing I love more than spending time with my favorite employee of the month whether walking along our favorite hiking trails or cuddling on the couch.

I found this little girl at an ASPCA and she's such a joy. After taking her on our first walk together I realized we needed something to prevent littering so, after returning home, the very next thing I did was to design a Poop Bag just for her.
