40+ Years of Sewing

More than 40 years ago, four Nashville young women had a vision of sharing their love and experience of sewing with others across the country. This vision became Children's Corner. In the 1970s, there were not many options readily available for sewing patterns for children, especially heirloom-inspired pieces. Children's Corner Patterns soon became the gold standard of children's heirloom sewing patterns. To this day, Children’s Corner celebrates the art of sewing through our quality fabric, patterns, notions and instruction.
