I'm Anna, the creator and stitcher behind Seedling Design.
I want you to feel at home in the kitchen. Whether you've just mastered boiling water or you make it a habit of cooking three course dinners for friends, I want you to enter the kitchen with confidence and delight. You know there is something special in that space where simple ingredients are turned into a nourishing meal. It is a place where you can embrace creative abandon and be close to the ones you love. If making a meal took you twenty minutes or two hours, it was time well spent that deserves a pause in your day and a gathering of loved ones at the table.
You know that good food nourishes more than your body. Friendships flourish around the table. A well-loved apron, like favorite recipe, can be passed down for generations. You want your friends and family to know the taste of lovingly prepared food. It's not about impressing anyone. It's not about perfection. It is about joy.
You don't have to build your dream kitchen or set the perfect table, but I want you to have the right accessories to feel at home wherever you are. A set of napkins that add something special to everyday meals, a sturdy bag for carrying your farmer's market haul, the apron you wear when making your family's favorite pasta sauce. I love combining vibrant colors, fabric patterns, stitching, and appliqué to make something that you will want to use all the time. I choose quality fabrics and carefully sew each piece to make sure it will last for years.
I am passionate about food and greatly value the time I spend in the kitchen. I want to share this with you by making things that are part of the rhythm of growing, cooking, and eating. I learned to sew when I was young and grew up experimenting with food and fabric. I've worked on farms and in restaurants, but I love what I can create and grow in my own space. I dream of living on a farm, but now I spend most of my days sewing and cooking in the Saint Paul, Minnesota apartment that I share with my husband, several bicycles, and growing collections of cookbooks and fabric.
