My mission is to serve others in their sewing endeavors in such a way that God is glorified as He brings a profit to my efforts. My desire is for The Sewing Basket to be a respected and admired business because of God’s Hand in it. It brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart to see the excitement and enthusiasm of my students when they are able to answer the question, “Where did you get that?” with “I made it myself! We carry beautiful quilt kits, quilting fabric, and notions!

– Proverbs 31:13, 21-22, 24-25 NASB
