Meet the Owner and Designer Eve Cecelia
“Originally from New England, raised in upstate NY. I moved west to Alaska for work and 4 years later found myself drawn to Seattle after falling in love with the city on extended layovers. The closeness of the mountains and water to the city was alluring and easy to fall for. It took until my early 30’s to pursue handcraft professionally, starting up in 2016 after finding myself unsatisfied managing other people's businesses. I managed everything from coffee shops in Brooklyn NY to Sensory deprivation spas in Seattle, and landed in the bustling industry of Architecture and Design for 3 years before deciding to join the makers community and develop Cecelia Stitch into a full time gig. I use materials like waxed canvas that speak to the Pacific Northwest’s damp environment and wool that has been woven here for over 100 years, with the goal to produce durable & timeless goods in small batch quantities.”

We source materials from companies like Hermann Oak, Pendleton Woolen mills, YKK and Local shops like Macphersons Leather, Seattle Fabrics, for a high quality end product and design.
We use commercial grade waxed canvas that is technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand. the waxed canvas we use is an environmentally friendly blend of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous. This unique formula gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather and as the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
Growing up my mother constantly demonstrated a love for art and creativity, she always encouraged and supported my desire to discover and learn crafts. I will forever be impressed and impacted by her ability to illustrate, paint signs, beautiful portraits, and lead a room of children in an art lesson with a special kind of magic. *Cecelia was her mother’s name and it is also my middle name.
VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER
General strap careSimple oils such as mineral oil, neatsfoot oil work well. Simply rub in a light coat evenly, then buff it with a clean dry rag. You can repeat these steps as many times as you like, but keep in mind that conditioning leather usually darkens it slightly (this is normal). New vegetable tanned leather straps will darken to a caramel color with time and use, getting better with age.
WAXED CANVAS CARE
Shake or brush off dirt, sand or any other abrasive material.For small spots, use cold water and mild soap, and a sponge or brush. With a little soap, gently massage the spotted surface. Rinse with a sponge and cold water. Let the bag air dry. Never store wet. If re-waxing I highly recommend Otter wax.
PENDLETON WOOL CARE
Spot clean only, brush with a lint brush and air out between wearings.
Preventing Moth Damage.
Moth damage typically occurs during storage or when wool garments aren’t worn regularly. Brush your wool regularly with a lint brush..
Clean wool articles before storing. Soiled wools (even those with invisible body oils) are more likely to attract moths.• After cleaning, store wools in an airtight bag or container.• Mothballs and crystals are very effective.
