This is our story.....

Hello there!  We're Jenny and John - the owners of Sew Fabulous Quilt Shop. Here are a few random facts about us:

Here are a few random facts about us:

-We left sunny Florida after 13 years and moved to central California in June, 2013 for John's dream job.  We're just a few hours away from of my favorite places on earth!

-We met at a sushi restaurant in Destin on August 31, 2000.  The friend I was with was trying to set me up with Mr. Sew Fab's best friend.  Things didn't work out as she had planned.....

-John (a.k.a. Mr. Sew Fab) is an F-15 pilot and military guy by day.....and a mover of large boxes of fabric and fixer of computer problems by night.

-When I'm not being a quilt shop owner I'm also a veterinarian.  I only practice occasionally now.....I got a little burned out in my former profession.   The quilting world is a much happier place!  One day in the spring of 2009 I decided I'd had enough of the vet world and that I wanted to open a quilt shop.  So I jumped off that "cliff" and never looked back! Mr. Sew Fab was 100% on board.  That's just the kind of guy he is!  

-I grew up in Oxford, Ohio - the home of Miami University!  I went to college at Miami and Vet School at Ohio State.

-We have three dogs, Emma Jane, Sammy and Baxter and two cats, Cassi and Bailey.  They are our kids!

-I love pink.  Pink is not just a's a way of life!

-I love Hello Kitty.  

-I love running.  I discovered that randomly when I was trying to lose vacation weight after we overindulged on a trip to Napa in August, 2011.  I was walking for exercise and one day I decided that walking was too slow so I just started running.  I ran 6 miles my first day. I am now training for a marathon.  The most I've ever ran at once is 20 miles.

-I love cooking, baking, sipping wine and making most of our food from scratch.  

-I love Italian food.  

-I love to eat raw cookie dough.  Yes.  I live on the edge.

-I love building dollhouses.  

-I don't drink soda or anything with caffeine. 

-I live in yoga clothes or pajamas or running clothes.  It's one of the many benefits of working from home.

-I went to Hawaii once via Japan.  It's a long story.  I've also been to Paris, London, Brussels, Venice, Cinque Terre (Italian Riviera), Tuscany, Holland and Germany.  My favorite places are Tuscany, Napa and anywhere with snowy mountains.

-I learned to sew when I was 5 years old.  My Mom was working on a needlepoint project and when she left for a moment I just picked it up and started sewing.  And I haven't stopped since.

And that's my life in a nutshell!  Thanks for stopping by!
Jenny (a.k.a. Dr. Sew Fab)
