Meet Jenn

Creating must be in my DNA because I can't remember a time when I wasn't making something.

After spending a decade producing my own clothing line, I fell in love with pattern design and development.


I'm extremely detail oriented, totally impatient

and a blast at a party... 


My obsession for creating a perfect sewing pattern is challenged by my need to create things fast and efficiently. 

I leave in my creative wake, extensive patterns that are fun and fast to stitch up. 

I created Sew & Tell Patterns out of a passion for sewing & pattern making. Here, I share my experience, prowess and good vibes hoping to help you master all things sewn. 

I'm Jenn. A seamster, badass pattern maker, mom to two and your new sewing bestie. Together, let's change the way we sew.
