Our Story

It started a long time ago ... a girl, a favorite doll, visions of Parisian couture for dolls and a grandma with a sewing machine.  Soon I was designing outfits for my dolls and my sweet grandma taught me how to operate her trusty Singer sewing machine (You know, the one that DOESN'T plug in). It's been a love affair ever since ... coordinating fabric, paper, colors, patterns ... but most of all fibers and texture ... it has to feel right!

Since those early days at my Oma's house in Germany, I've  been blessed with my own family and my own grandchildren. The joy of gaining fresh ideas and inspiration is never-ending, and as I sit here looking at fabric swatches and teaching my granddaughter how to operate the "Sew Cute" sewing machine that was given to her,  I can't help but imagine the visions of Parisian doll couture that might be dancing in her head.  And so it continues ... It feels right.


Family is everything and I hope you and your family will enjoy the collection of products we've lovingly created or chosen to represent.

Warmest of Wishes,
