Welcome to Love and Stitches! Many of you "know" me and watched my family grow up on the pages of Sew Beautiful magazine.  Sewing has always been my passion!  Have fun browsing through our online collection of tailored smocked, appliqué and heirloom coordinates.  Class info including project photos has been posted for my classes and schools.  We are in the process of updating the site, adding new items and additional pages constantly..... so visit often!   We'd love to receive your comments and photos of your love and stitches creations (email debbie@loveandstitches.com)

With Love and Stitches,        

"What a person needs most in this weary old world isn't glory or wealth without end, but a comforting hand to hold on to and the solace of one good friend" (Patrick Regan)

In May 2015 we sold our home in Aiken, and I moved into a one bedroom apartment in Charleston, SC to oversee renovations on our "new" forever home in Mt Pleasant.  Our plan was for a quick & easy turn around, but the best laid plans find us still awaiting completion of the house in after recovering from my third neck surgery in August.  Once we get in the house I'll resume holding Making Machine Magic seminars (possibly in my glorious new sewing room overlooking the water), but for now I'm still travelling to teach "Hometown Retreats" for individuals and guilds, plus teaching private classes locally.  For Info contact debbie@loveandstitches.com
