About 28 Sides Designs & Crafts
28 Sides Designs & Crafts is run by a stay at home mom and crafter with help from her technology savvy partner and husband and is located in the scenic foothills of the Blue Mountains outside of Winchester, VA. Everything for sale is created at home by Cecily using her trusty sewing machine (a Bernina Activa 125, fantastic machine)
The creative process begins with a whim or desire, either Cecily’s or a client’s. The desire is then communicated to Cecily (either by her subconscious or by the client). Then starts the fun part. If it is a custom item for a client, Cecily asks pertinent questions (such as, color, measurement, what is it for, what will you be wearing with it/too). Cecily, then, is off to the fabric store with a delightful skip to her step or to her stash (which amounts to the same thing). She then put the article together (whether it be clothing or non-clothing) with care and joy. And Voilà! A finished product lovingly created and finished that will hold up for years.
Check out the shopfor ever-growing selection of clothing and non-clothing handmade items we supply.
Our aim is to create quality handmade clothing and embroidered goods (and feed the fabric habit in a non-bank account clearing kind of way). We specialize in hand-embroidered goods, handmade clothing, handmade costume pieces, and any other crafts that happen to catch the eye of Cecily.
Cecily: Owner & Domestic Goddess
I love to make clothing and costumes. I got into sewing to make myself Ren Faire clothing that I couldn’t afford to buy. I am home taught (by my mother) and then took classes in college to supplement. My love of crafting has gone beyond just sewing and expands into other needlecrafts (hand-embroidery and knitting), jewelry-making, scrapbooking.
