Heidi the Cycling Seamstress


Welcome Intrepid Explorers!

Welcome! you have landed at my website! I am Heidi the cycling seamstress. Why the cycling seamstress? Well, I ride a big cargo bike around as my transportation. It is known as my pedal powered mini van!  I am also a seamstress/sewist/maker who spends her days sewing, embroidering and creating! I like to say if it is fabric and has stitching in it, there is a good chance I can make it.

I offer custom sewing and embroidery. I sell items I make at my online store. Those items range from reusable bags, unpaper towels and lovely embroidered things. I embroider patches, banners, small stuffies, towels and clothing. I can embroider those monograms and add fun and funky additions to ready made clothing.  I can create clothing from scratch or alter ready made clothing to fit you better.

While we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, I will be offering masks in adult and children sizes. Also when we have safely past the pandemic I will resume giving sewing lessons. I can teach basic sewing skills and also basic skills on operating and sewing on a serger.

      A little taste of goodies I have made!
