We're Minnesota girls!

Born and raised in rural Minnesota, a sewing machine has always been part of our home "decor"! Our grandmother was a sewist, our mom was a creative-everything, and we have always loved designing and making things together. Mom's love of "making" was a gift she gave to both her girls.... and now this gift has given us an opportunity to work together at something we both love!
Thanks MOM!!


SewQuiltCraft.com is the online extension of our design business Tailormade by Design. Joanie manages the day-to-day duties of the business, she designs and sews many creations, she plans and teaches classes and workshops and she finds time to bake, garden and "grandma"!  Melanie enjoys SewQuiltCraft as her "side-gig"~ she "'relaxes" by sorting, folding and bundling fabrics and helps with the nuts and bolts of the business.

As many of you know "quilting" is the friendliest industry.  We LOVE our quilty friends and truly enjoy our connections with our customers. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for something specific or have questions. Joanie would love to teach a class or workshop for your retreat, guild or quilt shop.  Please email for more information.
