Hello and welcome to my new Website for my business Sew-Ellen. My name is Theresa and I am the owner of Sew-Ellen my little fabric and haberdashery shop based in a little town called Gleneely in Co Donegal Ireland . Ive always had a passion for sewing as I grew up watching my mother “Ellen” ( the reason for my business name) who was and still is a very talented seamstress/sewer , I left school early and went to work with her at a local shirt factory where I was an overlocker for a few years. I’ve always loved sewing and being creative and making things with lots of colour.
Fast forward a good few years a husband and two little boys later . When my boys reached the age of school/Play school I joined a few dress making classes and sewing classes which re-ignited my love for sewing and the passion for owning my very own fabric shop. I opened up my shop in September 2017 at my home and very quickly it went from strength to strength, which has now led to the new website and also a move into bigger premises to carry my ever growing fabric collection. I hope you have enjoyed reading a little bit about me and my business Sew-Ellen and I hope you love the website or my shop as much as I do.
