Hello, my name is Stephanie and I’m the owner and designer behind the Ollie & Annie Collection. The Ollie & Annie Collection is a series of modern children’s clothing patterns with a classic twist and now includes fabric!

A little About Me

My passion for sewing started at a young age as I learned how to sew from my Mom. Starting with simple projects to eventually making clothing and blankets for myself and friends. I was always interested in creating something whether it was sewing, knitting or crocheting. It wasn’t until I became a stay at home Mom, and was introduced into the PDF community, that I grew passionate about sewing for my children more and more. My background knowledge of sewing and patterns quickly developed into an interest in designing the creations stirring around in my head. I love fabric, buttons, ribbon and trim. After years of getting an MBA in Business Marketing, working in the corporate world and then becoming a stay at home mom, I have finally found my dream job. A job that is a perfect combination of being there for my children, using my sewing and business knowledge and working on what I am passionate about...creating beautiful clothing! I am married and have four children.

History of Ollie & Annie Collection

After learning about the PDF community, and buying many patterns that interested me, I decided to start a business selling handmade children’s clothing. Sewing and selling the clothing lasted only a short time. It was at that point that I decided designing the patterns was more interesting. In Fall 2013, I designed my first pattern followed by my second and third patterns the following year. From that point on, I continued to add patterns to the collection. Designing children’s clothing patterns for the sewing community is exciting to me. I am constantly thinking about different designs to create.

In 2013, I started to slowly add in fabric sales to my business, but recently, I decided it was time to invest more in fabric sales. I am excited to work with knits more and incorporate beautiful fabric with my pattern creations. The best is yet to come!
