Here at Stitches by Sturman we celebrate June 13th as National Sewing Machine Day (yes, it's a thing) honoring the English inventor of the sewing machine,Thomas Saint, in 1790. This invention makes the work we do here possible. I started sewing as a small child, around 7 years old. My first project was a pair of pajamas and from there I designed and made many doll clothes along with most of my own back in the day. In high school, I began taking in sewing for friends and family and continued this into adulthood. In 1989, was the official beginning... Continue reading

Although I work with designers everyday, I am always amazed at how creative they can be. To take all of these different patterns and textures and place them in the same room is amazing. Me? I would have never chosen this combination, but absolutely love them together. This is why we all need designers in our lives. It's days like this I love my job! Continue reading

These little knit bunnies were my first attempt to knit a soft toy for our little babes. I had been trying to come up with something special for their Easter baskets. When I saw the Bonbon pattern over on Susan Claudino instagram I knew this would be the perfect addition to their Easter baskets. They were much easier than I anticipated. As I say, "If you take it one row at a time you can knit anything." I purchased the yarn from one of my favorite yarn dyers, Knitted Wit. The little guy on the left is out of colorway,...

There is something comforting to me that every morning is a fresh start. The day is clear of yesterday and just waiting for me to make it something more exciting, beautiful, and productive than the day before. Every day is a new day: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 Continue reading

I started a new online study today from She Reads Truth. Right now, they are offering a free study in Proverbs for the next 28 days. These gals have a great way to offer Bible study along with beautiful books and other helps. You don’t have to purchase the books to participate and there is always a helpful online discussion in the She Reads Truth community. This was the little nugget that jumped off my tablet.

First sewing project, for my special little gals. ‪#‎grandmaprep ‬‪#‎stitchesbysturman‬ ‪#‎twinsare2timestheblessing‬ I received these little onesies from a friend who had twins at Christmas time a couple of years ago and she knew that I would want them. And, yes, of course they are perfect for our up coming little cuties coming this December. I could not find a pattern for leggings that was small enough for newborns so I purchased a pair 0 to 3 months and made my own. I even made them smaller so they would fit our girlies a soon as possible. Continue reading

What’s in the workroom. #itsmyjob #stitchesbysturman Sometimes what’s in the workroom stays right here. This is the fabric I have chosen for our family room draperies. I have decided to go with a more monochromatic look with the color in the accessories. Continue reading

When you have an abundance of zucchini, you make a lot of bread. This batch is lemon zucchini bread. I am amazed when my recipe actually turns out to look like the picture I was working from. This is the Lemon Zucchini Bread recipe I used. I am always looking for new ways to used zucchini rather than the traditional bread because of the abundance that two small zucchini vines provide. Here is one my favorites. Continue reading
