Stitches of Love is a dream come true for both us … Julie Love and Brittany Love Bonda. We are a mother-daughter team working everyday to bring fun and happiness to the quilting world. That truly is our mission … to make happy things. From the little mug rugs and charm pads to the big quilts like Spoolie Bird, everything we do is meant to make you smile with happiness.
Julie is the talented designer behind Stitches of Love while Brittany is the business development and marketing side of the business. Together we make a pretty darn good team … even if we do disagree sometimes as all mother-daughter teams do.
Julie’s sewing talent dates back … well she won’t let me tell you how far back … but let’s just say there was no internet or even cruise control in cars. Julie learned to sew from her Grandmother Britt and her mother, Yvonne. Her artistic side comes from her Grandmother Love who was somewhat of a famous artist in and around the Florida Panhandle in the days of yesteryear. As you can see from Julie’s designs, she leans towards the whimsical side of life and is always sketching quilts on napkins, table paper (from her past life as an MRI Tech) and even sometimes on the computer.
Brittany’s love of business dates back to her high school years. Working with small businesses during summer jobs she saw that building a business versus working for the man was the path for her. Brittany is not the artistic one of this team but she brings creativity through marketing, website design and other avenues of business development. Brittany is always making a schedule and trying to make everyone follow it!
We are very lucky to have incredible and supportive people all around us and it would be terrible if we didn’t say thank you to our family and friends who continue to believe in us, support us when the days are long by pepping us up and by helping at the drop of a dime, even if it means stuffing patterns in bags into the wee hours of the morning. The picture collage is definitely not complete with everyone but here are a few of the many people who help us so much!
