What's left say!? All I do is talk about myself :)
Strike Team Leader
My dream all came to life after our daughter was born. A friend of mine had given us some handmade drool bibs as a baby shower gift which I instantly fell in love with. Doing our laundry one day with the few bibs we had I thought to myself I can definitely sew one of these.
My mother in law let me borrow one of her machines to whip up a few up, and just like that it all exploded from there!
Friends and family immediately asked if they could buy some.
From there it expanded to booties and fast forward 5 years, dresses, hoodies, pants, rompers the list goes on and on.
I had finally found something I truly loved doing.
Trendysoles is my business and dream come true 🖤
Head of Moral Support/Strike Sewist
My husband and I run a large ranch (500 + cows) with our 2 little cowboys (2 and 5) and his parents in northern Saskatchewan. I also work full time off the farm with an agriculture company. When I find a free moment or two I like to hide away at my sewing machine in my office. I started sewing receiving and minky blankets just before my oldest was born. I think they call it nesting 🤷🏻♀️. I sewed the odd one here and there for gifts but when I had my second babe Angela came for a visit and brought my oldest a hoodie. I was in aahhh of her talent when she said “You can make them, you sew minky and that is harder than this”. She referred me to a free hoodie pattern and I was hooked! I love being able to create unique items for our boys and as gifts for friends. Nothing makes me prouder than my oldest telling people “My mama made it”. 😊
Shop Staff/Right Hand Woman
Courtney is a full time super mom to two little boys. In her spare time ( ha ha ) she comes to keep me ( Angela ) organized and makes sure your orders get out on time. Courtney is not a sewist but she is uber crafty and her mom and grandma both sew and quilt. So if you ever need to know a co-ordinate and she is in the shop that day she is happy to help out! We may just get her sewing yet!
Strike Sewist/Social Media Guru
I started about 5 years ago when I needed a cushion for our new farmhouse table. Thinking it would be cheaper to make one, I bought a machine, foam, fabric and thread and taught myself to sew. Button holes and box corners included. It turned out great and I was hooked. I later started selling baby blankets, infinity scarves and un-paper towels at tradeshows to go along with my handmade beauty and cleaning products. Once our kids came along I took a break from selling, but still sewed the odd square thing for my kids (bum wipes, receiving blankets, etc). I only got into garment making a year ago when I decided to start up a new business to support the family lifestyle we are working towards. I now operate a custom business as well as a YouTube channel and local sewing classes.
I started my business almost a year ago. I had always had a love for sewing but my passion to sew started just over a year ago when my daughter was diagnosed with autism. My daughter is very sensitive to clothing so I have to make everything she wears. It was when I had many people asking about her clothes when I decided I had to make to sell. Then, I had my son. I had a hard time finding cute boy clothes so I made everything for him as well! Now my passion is growing into a thriving business and I couldn't be happier.
I've always been a crafty gal! I started with hand sewing, cross stitch and loom knitting as a kid. At around 12, I moved on to hand quilting in a guild for a brief time then learned to sew wovens on a machine. Fast forward to a little over 5 years ago...I borrowed a friends sewing machine to repair my littles cloth diapers. While shopping for Maxaloones on HyenaCart (remember that! I still shop there on occasion 😉), I realized I could make them. Off to the local fabric shop I went in search of knits. That's how Quoddy Creations was born!
You can find my items at North of 49 Handmade Auction House or if you're local, Hello Handmade Boutique
I never dipped into sewing much until my son was born. I sewed in high school but to be honest, wasn’t very good! I started by sewing a pair of the classic harems in the Pinterest photos with a beanie, and I was hooked! My best friend and I started Small Town Baby - which is the perfect mix in our already busy lives. I am very excited to be involved in the Shear Perfection family and can’t wait to see this company grow!
Someone very influential in my life was a quilter and I had always admired her work so I asked for a sewing machine one year for Christmas. When I received one I made a few quilts, bibs, dabbled a little in dog collars and realized there was only one thing I wanted to really make and it was clothing! So I started with a pair of fleece pants for my oldest and took off running after that. I still have a ton of things to ‘one day, someday’ learn but one sew at a time, right? I’m so excited to be part of the team and so excited to see what the future holds for Shear Perfection!
Crafts and DIYs have been a passion of mine since I was a tot. I've dabbled in a ton of different hobbies including wood working and wood burning, sign painting etc but I first learned to sew when I was getting married and wanted to make the flower girls matching dresses. I decided to also sew the ties for the men, and then got addicted to trying out new items. For a while I had my own dog collar business, however I grew bored of sewing the same thing over and over. Many quilts, bibs, bowties and clothing items later - my sewing/craft partner Brooke and I decided running a business together would be fun! Kangaboo Clothing was born and is still kinda in the growing stages since we are both full time moms and lead very busy lifestyles! But we are having a great time sewing custom orders and continuing to learn new things 💞
Sewing is my therapy 🤣 It’s mandatory!! Haha
I started sewing over 15 years ago, studied two years in fashion design haute couture in Ottawa and discovered the sewing community and custom knit in 2016 when I was pregnant of my first boy. I was mostly sewing for my two boys and my small business for the last three years, this year I’m making it all about me. 😜😂 Selfishsewingx10000
I started sewing 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my first boy. I started making clothes a bit later and I fell in love with sewing knit! I owned a kid’s and women’s clothing business for 3 years but I stopped to focus on my family (3 kids now!) and my other business (dance school!!) So now, sewing is all about creativity for my family and dance costumes!
I am a sewing addict! I was actually terrified of sewing most of my life thinking it must be so difficult to use a sewing machine. How did people even sew a straight line?! Then, a new girl moved into town and made the most amazing dresses you have ever seen for her little girl. Having just had a baby girl, I wanted to learn so bad! I asked the new girl, who I quickly became best friends with, and the rest is history. Now I've got a girl, a boy and a new one on the way to sew
It all started when my Grandma gave me her serger! I am a Mom of two boys and was looking for a creative outlet while needing to be at home. I fell in love with all the beautiful knit fabric and the ease (admittedly dangerous ease) of having it delivered to my home. I do own a small business where I primarily make custom items. My absolute favourite creations are gifts - there isn’t a better feeling then I child truly loving a gift made just for them. Hence my business name To You From Me. I truly am honoured to be apart of this very talented team and can’t wait to see all of the beautiful unique fabric creations.
My love for sewing started fairly early when as a child I discovered I could create fairy costumes for my poor Shih Tzu. I started up again by making lovely boutique style dresses for my daughters and eventually opening up shop a few years ago. It has taken over our lives, and sometimes the entire house, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. So happy to be part of the Shear Perfection team!
