Whit Stitches

Seamstress, teacher,

mender, fixer and lover of sewing

 

Hi.  I'm Whitney.  I've been sewing for 35 years.  In that time I've sewn almost all the Disney Princess costumes, various cartoon/gaming costumes and I've sewn for the costume director at The American School in Japan and where ever else my children participated in theater productions.  I sew purses,  home décor and holiday decorations.  I do mending and alterations for family and friends.  I manage my son's high school marching and concert band uniform department.    I sew tshirt quilts.  I sew clothes and I'm currently in the process of replacing my wardrobe with an entirely me made ensemble.  I am also looking to learn new things and expand my knowledge base to patternmaking and expert fitting for custom made garments.

I love to spread the love of sewing.  I've taught friends, neighbors and school kids the basics of sewing.  I love watching the joy in a person's face when they've made something of their own.

Now with mostly grown kids and a traveling husband I have a lot of sewing time on my hands.  My goal for sewing is to grow my skill every day and enjoy the craft my family has passed down for generations.  I hope to meet others who sew and spread my love of sewing to beginners.
