“Like mother, like daughter.” Thats how the saying goes right?!?
Well… we couldn’t agree more!
My name is Jackie. So glad you stopped by! My husband and I retired to sunny, HOT southern Arizona a few years back, but prior to that we lived in upstate New York. I love living near my children now, which gives us tons of time with our grandkids!
When I am not sewing or quilting, you will find me spending my days outside. Growing up, I learned all about gardening, canning, and how to love the outdoors! I became a self taught seamstress and quilter after getting married, sewing most of my children’s clothing and my own for a long time. Sharing all the things that I love with my daughter, is how our adventure began!

My name is Amanda, and I am the other half of this duo. I spent 7 years teaching art integration in both DC and AZ and I am now grateful to spend my days at home with my 2 sons and our dog Moose.
I have always thrived in a creative environment and knew from a young age I wanted to do something that challenged that creativity. It wasn’t until I moved to Albuquerque and really had time to dive into sewing that I realized I loved it! A whole new door had opened. I am sure my husband was just rolling his eyes at ANOTHER craft habit to fund (because lets be real I love ALL things crafty). My new hobby soon turned into an Etsy business with my mom (because she’s also a fabric hoarder!) and well here we are today…
When I am not locked in my studio, I am spending time gardening with my son, hiking and exploring the Sandia Mountains with my family, and building our dream farmhouse outside of Albuquerque.
