Introducing Crosscut Sewing Co!


I am so excited to share the big news!  Two More Minutes is now Crosscut Sewing Co.   Why the change?  Well, it’s a long story but here’s the sort of summed up version.

I started Two More Minutes as a blog in 2013.  I posted a variety of recipes, craft projects and sewing tutorials.  I was working full time as a web designer and I had a newborn and a 2-year-old, so I was pretty busy.  I blogged when I had time. 

Over time, I needed more flexibility so I stopped taking on as much design work.  I had more time to sew and I decided to sign up for a craft fair, which I had always wanted to try.  I sewed like a crazy person for that first fair and afterwards, I had some handmade items left so I listed them on Etsy and on my website.  Then I signed up for more craft fairs, and well, you get the idea.

As I started buying more fabric, I listed that on my site as well.  I have been torn between the handmade and fabric sides of the business for a while.  I have been talking to my family for years now about committing to the fabric and sewing side and I am finally taking the leap.

I have been teaching sewing classes locally and I love it!  I love packing orders and seeing what combinations you come up with.  I love helping people with sewing questions and picking out fabrics.  I obviously love fabric and I now have more than I can fit in my home studio, so I am branching out.  I will soon have a brick and mortar location.  More on that to come!

What does this mean for you?

  • Same great customer service
  • Same super fast shipping – all orders received by 3:00EST Mon-Fri are shipped same day
  • Even more fabric!  Please tell me what you want to see!
  • Expanded notions and sewing supplies
  • More classes!  I will be adding all levels of sewing classes for adults and children.
  • A chance to shop in person if you live near or visit Massachusetts
  • New patterns and tutorials on this site
  • New website – coming soon!
  • Loyalty program – coming soon!
  • New handmade items and custom sewing options

I’d like to thank my customers, sewing friends and family for their support in this venture.  I have had the pleasure of traveling around the country to sewing conventions, classes and retreats and I love being a part of such a wonderful community.

Thanks and happy sewing!
