MEET EVE CECELIA
New mama to Arden Lou, wife of graphic designer Ryan Williams (Holy Mountain Brewery) and lover of crafted goods.
Cecelia Stitch was established in 2016 as a creative side project/outlet to a daily 9-5 hustle while working within the bustling industry of Architecture & Design in Seattle,WA.
The motivation to make it a full time business came when she was recruited to a larger corporate firm that lacked creativity and personality. She quickly decided to resign to pursue her passion for handcraft and I hasn't looked back since.
Over the past two years her skills and desire to create products that bring beauty and comfort to the lives of their owners has only strengthened and expanded. "Working with my hands is where I find myself most true and I hope each Cecelia Stitch piece demonstrates that love" ~ Eve Cecelia
Growing up my mother constantly demonstrated a love of art and creativity, she always tenderly supported my desire to discover and learn many crafts, and I will forever be impressed and impacted by her ability to illustrate, paint signs, portraits, and lead a room of children in an art lesson with a special kind of magic.
*Cecelia was my grandmothers name and is also my middle name.
I source high quality materials from companies like Hermann Oak, Martexin, Cotton & Steel, Osborn, YKK and Local shops like Macphersons Leather, Seattle Fabrics and Pendleton Woolenmills, for a high quality end product and design.
I use commercial grade waxed canvas that is technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand. Tex Wax 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.
