We are a mother-daughter design team, best friends, and obsessed with all things quilting. Our company, Stitches of Love, is a dream come true that we imagined and planned for years. Now that our dream has become a reality, we constantly say to each other, “Is this really happening?!”
Julie always had the creativity and designs in her mind and first began bringing her ideas to life in the late 90's. She designed jumpers for teachers that featured an array of whimsical applique scenes. As she became more interested in quilting, the focus shifted to designing applique quilts for her friends, family and home. Soon, she began hearing the question, “Where did you get that pattern? I have to buy it!” The answer was always that Julie had designed the quilt and so began the journey to publishing her patterns.
Brittany was also very focused on making Stitches of Love a reality. Even during grad school, she focused all of her projects around the idea of Stitches of Love and building a business through online marketing. After graduation, Brittany built the Stitches of Love website, started marketing through Facebook and worked to build an audience for Julie’s designs. We were amazed to see how quickly our patterns and kits gained popularity. We loved that a traditional craft like quilting was still alive and kicking...and tech savvy!
As we look to the future we continue to focus on bringing fresh, fun and unique applique quilt patterns, laser cut kits and fabrics to quilters and quilt shops around the globe. We are constantly thinking of ways to provide entertainment and add value to our quilt and craft community. We hope you enjoy our first line of fabrics with Henry Glass and look forward to sharing our love of stitching with you!
