My name is Cynthia and I am the owner of Cynthia’s Weighted Blankets and Crafts. In 2018, I started sewing weighted blankets and making them for friends and family. In November 2019, I had approached a local business that was making weighted blankets to get some pellets. After a lovely discussion with them, I finally decided that it was time to start making my sewing available to everyone. I love it when I can make someone smile because I made a one-of-a-kind item that is special to them.
My mother taught me to sew when I was a child and I have been sewing ever since. She has taught me how to sew, crochet, and knit. I was always working on some kind of project and she was always patient teaching me what I needed to do next to complete it. I am so grateful to have learned these skills from her and will always cherish the memories of this time spent together.
Over the years, I’ve tried many other arts such as scrapbooking, cross stitching, painting and any kind of craft that came my way. In the end, I would always end up back to my sewing machine. I started by making clothing for myself and when my children were born, I started sewing clothing for them. As they grew my sewing changed to quilting and useful household products. I continued to teach myself to sew items such as cushions, quilts, blankets and anything else you can make with fabric. If I was bored I would always try to find something to make whether it was for myself, for my home or something that a family member had requested.
I wouldn’t be able to go through this journey without the support of my husband and my children. Thank you for being there for me. As my business continues to grow, I also want to thank you all for following, liking, commenting, and sharing my posts. As a small business these little actions mean the world to me.
If there is a certain item you are looking for I would be happy to make it for you. After all, your wishes are my stitches.
