The Sew and Tell Project

We are a group of friends who love life, our families, our shared Catholic faith, and using our free time to create!

We love to support independent designers and share our creations with one another. Now we want to share them with you.

Emily Headshot



Emily is a wife and mother to three energetic and creative little people. When she isn’t admiring their artistic endeavors or preventing disasters, she loves to sew, craft and design. She has been making messes and fun creations for as long as she can remember. Her newest hobby is photography since she has so many willing models in her house. She sews all sorts of clothing for her children and especially loves any sort of costuming. She also loves ice cream, chocolate, and staying up until midnight.







Genie Head Shot



Genie is a wife and mother of three beautiful children. Professionally, she is a portrait photographer, but her true passion lies in crafting. She learned sewing and the other domestic arts from her grandmother (who was a designer in New York) and mother (who is a home ec teacher), and has many happy memories of sewing, needlepointing, cooking, and baking with them. As an adult, she has picked up scrapbooking, card making, and creating mixed media pieces.
