ABOUT SIMPLE GRACE DESIGN
I am a mom of two young boys and wife to a fabulous and supportive husband. What started out as a creative adventure putting together my boys nurseries turned into a full blown job! I love working with a variety of textiles, sewing and continuing to create beautiful and organic items for my home and children. Prior to starting Simple Grace Design I taught 4th grade to children with learning disabilities through the University of Chicago. When I am not sewing or running around after two little boys, you can find me trying to figure out how to stay on my new triathalon bike or reading!
After becoming a mom, I began spending more time sewing and Simple Grace Design was born! Many people ask “why the name Grace?” Good question! Grace means “simple elegance” and while it was originally my first choice for a baby girl name, I was blessed with two boys. So, Simple Grace Design seemed like the perfect choice for my new adventure. I have been on Etsy since 2014 and am thrilled to be opening our first store front location in the beautiful Evanston, Illinois. I am hoping to provide a unique sense of community by offering sewing classes to all ages, as well as the ability to come in, rent a sewing machine, and work on your own projects with a group of like minded individuals!
