PJ Cartwright learned to sew in 1955 at the age of 9 in an effort to earn her Girl Scouts “Sewing” badge. She continued sewing until the age of 17 when an unpleasant experience with the zipper on her spring formal gown led her to vow “No more zippers” and abandon the art sewing. After a decade of absence, Cartwright once again took up sewing classes – this time quality knits – only to find that she enjoyed purchasing fabric more than she enjoyed sewing with it. After making custom fitted pants, tops, and bathing suits galore, she again abandoned the craft with over 250 yards of color coordinated fabric to her name.
Forty years later, Cartwright decided to take a series of quilting classes, and her love affair with fabric was rekindled. She continues to build her personal fabric collection and create beautiful quilts and tuffets for herself and her family to this day. Through her flourishing online store, she now also shares her passion for fabric with the world. Cartwright’s Sew Celebrate continues to be a growing resource for quilters, tuffet-makers, fabric lovers, and more around the globe.
