I am Marti Tolbert, owner of That's Sew Marti LLC. My last "real job" was working for 12 years as manager for Elegant Stitches in Cary, NC. That is a lovely smocking and heirloom sewing shop that evolved into quilting and crafting during my years there. Retiring in 2012 to beautiful Belhaven, NC, gave me the time to finally do all the things I taught my customers to do! Along with my husband Larry and our two Shi-Poo’s, Mini Pupcake and Purl Jam, life has definitely refocused!
I am enjoying creating beautiful things with all my accumulated fabric! The fabric I envisioned as a quilt may now become a Tuffet! I also love to do machine embroidery, my favorite items being custom cozies and kitchen/hand towels with whimsical sayings!
Teaching Tuffet classes in Eastern NC as a Certified Tuffet Source Affiliate has also become part of my life. Tuffet Source is the tuffet pattern company founded by Sharyn Cole, the Tuffet Queen. I am the Tuffet Princess of Eastern North Carolina! Along with many "Tuffet Sisters" who teach classes throughout the US and other parts of the world, we are "Building the Tuffet Nation...one Tuffet at a time!"
My goal is to put a smile on someone's face with lovely handmade gifts! I do hope you will find something to tickle your fancy!
