Hello! I’m Tami Meyer and I’m the designer behind Love Notions Sewing
Patterns. I’ve been sewing since I was 10 but my business was born shortly
after my daughter, Mallory. What started out as a necessity from cloth
diapering blossomed into a full-scale custom clothing boutique. After 10
years of running that I made the leap into offering my original designs in
PDF format for the home sewist.

Again, the business took off and today I work hard to deliver easy to use and easy to wear designs with an emphasis on ‘tweens and stretch fabrics. I feel so blessed to be able to share my creative side with the sewing world: from the rookie sewist to the seasoned
professional.

So how did I become involved in the sewing world 28 years  ago? Well, my mom grew up on a farm with a big family and parents who were extremely resourceful and handy at everything. My grandparents passed the tradition of crafting beautiful, homemade, useful items onto my mother and me: cooking, canning, farming, gardening, animal caretaking and, of course, sewing. In fact, to this day my eighty year old Grandma can still step just
out her front door and create a meal for eight with just the contents in
her garden and her canning pantry.

So, when I was about 10 my grandma taught me how to sew. I can still remember our first project — a pair of pajamas using some turquoise shirting she was going to use for my grandpa. I so wish I still had those PJ’s! Fast forward a couple decades and I have
my own family who inspire my creations, with a little bit of graphic design
help from my artistic husband. Now Mallory is 12 and fairly confident with
my sewing machine though Sam, my 9 year old son, would rather just take it
apart to see how it works. No matter the medium, I hope they can continue
the family tradition of crafting useful, beautiful things.
