About Us

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.

Karen Gooch & Emily Douglas, Owners

It’s been a whirlwind for Emily Douglas and Karen Gooch since they became the owners of The Children’s Corner Store in 2013. Both longtime customers and avid seamstresses, the duo has put their own stamp on the shop, while honoring and maintaining its traditions and heirloom legacy of more than 40 years. We are excited to see our sewing community grow!

Children’s Corner Patterns designs sewing patterns & smocking plates for girls and boys with classic, timeless styles for the modern child.

While we continue to create sewing pattern designs for the girl of today, we are committed to our roots in classic, heirloom and smocked styles such as our smocked Bishop dress and Lee, the classic yoke dress.
