Hello, my name is Carey and I am the owner and creator of Sticks & Stitches and I bet you're wondering how we came up with such a crazy name! Our business started with my love for sewing, quilting and creating. My family and friends always asked me, "What are you stitching today?" As our business grew we added the carpentry talents of my husband, Richard. Now you have it, Sticks for our custom wood products and Stitches for our sewn product line!
|This is the little Singer hand crank sewing machine that my Mom used as a child. Her Mom and Dad gave it to her when she was about 9 or 10. My Mom spent countless hours teaching me how to sew doll clothes using this very machine when I was 8 years old. Can you imagine, turning that crank for hours at a time? During the summer of my 10th birthday I graduated to an electric machine and I have been sewing ever since! Unfortunately my Mom passed away on Oct 13, 2002 but this little beauty sits on a shelf near my sewing machine; keeping dear memories of Mom's encouragement and lessons near by.|
|Our business blossomed in 1989 with the renovation of an old farm building near our in central New York. Although we do not have a retail showroom for customers please consider becoming a fan of our Facebook page to learn of upcoming events, new products, and special sales.|
