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!
