The Sewing House is a family-owned shop. Owner Jennifer Reith has a great team and you may see her daughter Morgan and son-in-law Paxton (or son Joshua) helping on a busy Saturday.

Jennifer’s youngest daughter Ellie teaches youth sewing classes during breaks from college and works at the shop helping customers. She’s been sewing for years. Ellie and Jennifer have volunteered their time helping organizations serve our community through sewing projects, as well as donated fabric and machines.

Jackie Watson is a life-long sewing enthusiast. After years of sewing clothes, stuffed dolls, and band color guard flags, friends introduced her to quilting 15+ years ago. She’s made countless quilts for family, friends, and coworkers.

Patrice Lewis does an excellent job serving customers and making kits! Everyone loves a “grab & go” project complete with measured fabric and pattern ready to create.


Patrice Lewis has been a sewist for 50 years. She has recently renewed her love for quilting and loves to teach sewing on many levels from handwork to machine work.

Jessica Lyons learned to sew 15 years ago when her Granny taught her to hand quilt. Her favorite type of sewing is classic vintage children’s garments in fun prints! She teaches children’s garment classes.

She advanced her skills as a Home Ec major at UTM and created smocked clothing for her children, home decor, and now makes quilts for family and friends.
