Welcome to Sew French!
In a little home near apple orchards and the ocean, I design original cross stitch patterns inspired by vintage linens, flower gardens and French motifs. I adore the colors of sunsets and seashells. Raspberry, gold and shell-pink are my favorite colors.
I hope you have a cozy time stitching my patterns. Put the kettle on, relax and create a heartwarming piece of hand-embroidered art. Stitch your stress away while flowers flow from your needle. Personalize your home and turn up the soulful charm with sweet stitchery.
My goal is to provide you with pretty patterns that promote peaceful stitching. My wish is for you to discover the gentle beauty of hand-embroidery.
My patterns have been featured around the web and in Homespun Magazine and Boston Magazine. I find my bliss in cross stitch.
I live with my husband, Tom, and rescued beagle, Ellie, in a tiny home. My husband is a scientist. I work part time as a counselor in a crisis center. We reside in coastal New England, on the North Shore of Boston.
I enjoy riding my vintage bike in summer and walking my dog on winter-beaches. Ordinary days and quiet moments bring me joy. God, prayer, social justice and keeping a mellowness of heart are most important to me. I'm addicted to red lipstick. We all have our vices. ;)
