MEET THE CREW
Sincerely Rylee Fabric Shop has a story that spans from coast to coast. A tale of ordinary beginnings turning into a sweater knit haven for seamstresses from all over! One day I was organizing my all-consuming, yet extremely lovely, stash of floral knits! I quickly realized *maybe* I had a hoarding problem. I had fabric in every nook and cranny of my house. Instead of calling TLC to get on the next season of "Hoarding Buried Alive" I did what any logical seamstress would do... I went directly to the biggest fabric network there was at the time and showcased my pretty fabric for all to see! The response was overwhelming!!! It went from a "look at the pretties!' post to my inbox and original thread receiving hundreds of request for me to help others build their stash! And so, a business was born! Through a few moves, some hiccups, and major changes, Sincerely Rylee has grown into the flourishing business I could have only dreamed of and I can't wait to continue on the SR journey with all of you!
Who is Sincerely Rylee?
This isn't just a straight forward answer! Sincerely Rylee is made up of many people who are devoted each and every day at providing the best customer service we can! Lets get to know who is behind Sincerely Rylee.
Meet Darcey and Chris Kelly (Owners)
Sincerely Rylee was founded by myself (Darcey) in 2014. Though before that I was just a mom crafting my way through naps, baths and endless… well I’m sure you can finish that one. I never knew how much I loved sewing before having my daughter (Rylee). During my nesting stage with Rylee I found myself taking on project after project. From headbands to baby clothes I just wanted to sew! Those days are far, few, and in-between lately! After added a second little one to the crew (Sawyer) I found I had no more extra time to create and sewing had to became a special privilege! Although, surprisingly over the years my love for sewing has really turned into a love of fabric! I find it fascinating to learn every bit of information my field provides. It's been so exciting learning the shop as it grows! My husband Chris is also a member of the Sincerely Rylee team and an important one at that! He does all things shipping, bookkeeping, excel files, you name it! As a previous high school math teacher, it was the perfect fit for him in the fabric business. SRF wouldn’t be able to be ran without his amazing help!
Kelli is where SR all started! Years ago when normal people slept in... our Saturdays were filled with fabric shopping together. I'm sure every customer of mine can agree that we'd take the chance at fabric shopping over warm pancakes if it meant you got all the pretties!! And no worries.. we usually almost always ended our fabric date with some yummy Starbucks instead. When it comes to moral support she's the bees knees! Kelli has been there through every typical entrepreneur moment I've had over the years. From the ups and downs of owning your own business she is so good at empowering me, bringing me to my senses, and just down right laying it all out for me. She is a special gem. So full of love. We are so lucky to have been on the journey with you from the very beginning!
