Sew Celebrate

Sew Celebrate is an online fabric shop owned by PJ Cartwright.

About the Shop

Sew Celebrate is an online shop offering fabrics from the Kaffe Fassett Collective, Tula Pink, and other fine Free Spirit designers. Headquartered in Celebration, FL (the town created by Walt Disney just outside the entrance of Walt Disney World), the online shop evolved from owner PJ Cartwright’s desire for quality fabrics to use in her tuffet making business. Upon the closing of a local quilt shop which left her with nowhere to purchase fabric locally, Cartwright expanded her online tuffet business to include her fabric of choice, Free Spirit.

In the fall of 2017, Cartwright attended a design class by Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably where she realized that the secret to the Kaffe Fassett Collective’s wonderful quilts lies in the beauty of the richly designed patterns and color combinations. When the 2018 Kaffe Fassett Collective Mystery Quilt program was officially launched, Sew Celebrate quickly enrolled, seeing it as a wonderful opportunity to introduce Kaffe Fassett Collective fabrics to quilters world-wide.

About the Owner

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.

My favorite part of the program is hearing from quilters who have never quilted, or never used these fabrics, and sharing with them the wondrous world we know simply as “Kaffe”. It has been exciting to see the explosion of interest again in quilting by so many.
