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!

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!
