The Cutters & Cloth story all starts with the gift of a sewing machine.
I come from a family of sewists. Both Grandmas, my mother and my sister were (and are) accomplished sewists. I have spent a lifetime peering over their shoulders, watching with envy as they create – quilts, costumes, baby clothes and related accoutrement, you name it. Myself, I kept it to simpler fare – plunking away on my 1960’s era hand-me-down machine, fighting with tension and stitch length, never satisfied completely with what I had created. Then, for my birthday my family gifted me a brand-new sewing machine and I was hooked. The day my eye set upon a certain bib overall pattern (you know the one), my journey into garment sewing began. I ate, slept and dreamt about sewing. However, when I went in search of quality garment fabric, I became frustrated with the limitations of my local big-box store. “But where else can I source fabric in Canada?”, I wondered. And so, Cutters & Cloth was born.
