Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Jesy Anderson, Owner/Creator of Needle, Ink and Thread and Former Co-Owner of Sew Dayton, a small fabric and sewing studio located in the Oregon District of Downtown Dayton, Ohio. Sew Dayton was open from Sept 14, 2012 – August 16, 2014. The doors ended up closing and using what I learned after four years in business, I opened Needle, Ink and Thread. I am now focusing on teaching, alterations and some custom work.
When I started…
When I started down my creative path, I chose to focus on sewing. I started September of 2010, I have been crazy for it ever since. Growing my skill over the last years from novice to teacher. By teaching, I have learned so much more about sewing and the techniques. And, Watching the eyes of my students light up as the process “clicks”. As a teacher, there is nothing better! I love sharing my skills and knowledge.
Having multiple artistic outlets is the only way I can function, I can’t just do one thing or focus on one study. Keeping myself energized by trying all types of crafts, mediums, and designs. Sewing, it’s a passion, but THE passion is still in design work. Branding, typography and anything with art. I have started to dabble with surface design (designing fabrics and embroidery patterns)!
I am going to fill this site with lots of inspiration, tutorials, reviews, design, sewn items, paintings, and possibly some personal cooking recipes.. did I mention I LOVE to cook?
Also, this site where be a place to book private one on one sewing lesson with me! Also group classes and workshops, birthday parties, baby showers, DIY wedding classes and so much more! Contact me through the site if you have idea’s on classes or questions about a class!
I love being creative and helping people find their creative path and I can’t wait to meet you! Again, Don’t forget if you ever have an idea for a post, please contact me!
