We grew up without realizing that some people actually bought curtains and pillows, instead of making them themselves. Almost every lady in our family is or has been an artist or seamstress of some kind! When we were very little girls, we sold our handmade creations to the neighbors (who still have some of our popular potholders). So marie-madeline studio - named after our grandmother and great-grandmother - was launched in December of 2007, with a vision for encouraging and inspiring others into making beautiful things. Our exclusive line of sewing patterns debuted that same year, and our online fabric store opened soon after. The custom items we offer are all handcrafted, by the five of us, in our happy home studio. We're forever grateful to God for blessing us with the ability to stay at home, doing what we love while being together! We share the joy with our dad, three brothers, and two collies named Bo and Blayde.
