Just getting started...

So here we are trying to get this blog together so that we can share with the world who we are and what we do. First off Sew To Speak is an actual, physical store, located in Columbus, Ohio at
4610 N. High Street in Clintonville.
We are a do it yourself style shoppe for apparel and home decor. We offer lots of unique fabrics, fun patterns, books, sewing classes and more.

And you might be wondering who are "we"? We are... shoppe owner and awesome crafter Anita Bowman, and myself April Rhodes, daughter of Anita, shoppe helper and bloggster spokesperson (for lack of a better title). Also we must introduce the third generation, my daughter and often our inspiration, Aelyn Virginia. Fondly known as our Squishy. Seen below on her first quilt, made by Anita(known to Squishy as Grammy, like the awards)

This large scale baby quilt is made up almost entirely of Amy Butler fabric. Amy is one of our favorite designers along with the wonderful Anna Maria Horner, Alexander Henry, Joel Dewberry, Heather Bailey, Denyse Schmidt and more. You can find all of these designer's fabrics in our shoppe. In fact Friday's UPS delivery just brought in the latest collection from Amy Butler, August Fields. Also this coming week we expect a huge shipment of gorgeous new wares, including Michael Miller fabrics, new Heather Bailey and more new Amy Butler.

So that's us... very exciting stuff happening here.
Drop by again soon. Please. Thanks - Sew To Speak
