The Story of



I started sewing after my daughter was born in 2007 and my "how hard can it be" attitude has gotten me into all sorts of trouble since! 


In 2008 I launched my first handmade business selling kids costumes at a local market.  However it wasn't until 2010 when I found my niche selling party dresses that Ainslee Fox really took off! 


In 2013 I pivoted and started selling PDF patterns for my party dresses under the name Ainslee Fox Boutique Patterns and later that year I launched One Thimble (a digital sewing magazine).  In 2019 I sold One Thimble to focus on my family and get back to sewing for fun. 


In 2020 I started teaching friends and family to sew and this has led to the most recent evolution of Ainslee Fox.  These days Ainslee Fox is a home based sewing school ... for now!


I dream of having a little shop downtown with a sewing retreat space upstairs where people can come and learn to sew or purchase items made by my students. 


I'm so pleased to have YOU along on this journey!
