About Us


I have such fond memories of growing up in a quilt shop, my grandmother was the proprietor of “The Beehive” in southern Alabama. Where kids today are entertained by electronics and videos, I was entertained by learning to smock and sew. If fact, most days, it was not a choice it was a requirement. I was either outside being chased by the rooster on her property or inside doing something with fabrics and thread. I think back at how talented she was at matching colors and creating designs of her own. She would be in awe of all the amazing quilting notions, longarm machines, and how far fabrics have come over the years. Carrying on her legacy by owning a quilt shop was never a plan I had for myself, but somehow, I ended up here and I know she would be very proud.

I love meeting all the new quilty people that are becoming my friends. Happy sewing y’all! Come and see us soon!”

Lace Cottage

We are pleased to bring you The Lace Cottage as a member of our Sewing House family! With our expansion to a new larger space in July 2023 at the Collierville shop, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to become the new owners of this longstanding community treasure!

“When I was young, I would frequently visit my grandmother at her quilt shop in Alabama. It was fascinating to watch her create her incredibly beautiful quilts and I have one of my favorites on display in my office. Watching her sew and design, being surrounded by vibrant fabrics and a rainbow of yarn felt magical! She taught me to sew and quilt, and it has been a very special dream to carry on her love of sewing and quilting with The Sewing House.

As a young Mother, I made clothes for my three babies and it was incredibly special to pick out the fabrics and patterns and see them wearing outfits I created myself. Now that they’re grown, I still show my love through quilting and garment making. I’m now making quilts and outfits for our grandbabies! Like every home sewist, I put my love into every single stitch!

Through the years, I’ve always admired heirloom garments. The intricate smocking designs are incredible artwork! Heirloom sewing always intimidated me so I never ventured past simple garments for years. I didn’t know where to start! When my oldest daughter was a senior in high school, I was determined to make her a beautiful graduation dress. I was working full-time and busy with three kids but it was important for me to make her a special dress. I’ll never forget how my experience with the Lace Cottage made this goal possible.

Rose and Kit showed me what a gift they both have for teaching. They made me feel like I belonged at Lace Cottage. Their patience and generosity with their time and knowledge impressed me beyond measure. These ladies made me truly fall in love with heirloom creativity! During this time, I started to use my vacation days to learn at Lace Cottage - I was determined and had a deadline! Rose and Kit both helped me sew the most beautiful graduation dress for Morgan. I will always be grateful to them!”
