About this project

Why Quilts?

Many of us remember the blankie our mother or grandmother gave us as a kid (some of us even still have ours as adults). Because these were a gift from a loved one, they are a treasure, and that’s what we want to help provide when anyone orders a custom quilt from STITCHED.

A quilt is a tangible representation of comfort & security. It’s much more than just a blanket made up of fabric and thread: a quilt tells the story of its owner and demonstrates the love of the person who gives it.

Each person has a unique story, yet we all have in common the longing for security & comfort. Nothing provides comfort & security quite like a quilt! Our mission is to provide everyone the tools to design a one-of-a-kind quilt to represent each story-- making the world a softer, gentler place one story at a time.

Our Software

You no longer have to know how to quilt to be able to give the gift of a quilt. With our web application, you can design and order a quilt for a loved one to cuddle with. No sewing, no cutting, no previous craft or DIY experience necessary, and we've made it user-friendly for all ages.

We’re constantly adding unique patterns and fabric to our site giving unlimited design options. Pick from a designer pattern or use our block designer to design our own. Just drag and drop fabrics into your pattern.

Our Manufacturing

A quilt has three pieces. A top (the part you design), soft Cuddle® minky fabric on the back to make it snuggly, and batting in the middle to give it weight and warmth. Then it’s stitched together in a pattern to complement the design of your top and bound around the edges.

We print your design directly onto fabric for the top. Our printer lays ink down on the surface of the fabric, much like the conventional inkjet printers you find in the home or office - just supersized! The benefit is that we can achieve a very high level of detail in our designs, and every single quilt we produce can be completely custom. You're able to design a quilt that is truly unique to you, that no one else in the world has. However, because it isn’t pieced like a traditional quilt, it can be produced in a fraction of the time for a fraction of the price traditional pieced quilts are sold for.

We strongly believe in US manufacturing and are proud to say our quilts are printed and assembled in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Our Materials

Our quilts are made of the finest materials to ensure lasting comfort. Our tops are 100% cotton, and have undergone rigorous testing to ensure color-fastness through multiple washings. Our batting is a blend of cotton & polyester, which provides exceptional strength and durability during the quilting process. The backs of our quilts feature Cuddle® fabric, one of the softest fabrics in the world.

Doing Good

Quilts represent and provide comfort and security. Unfortunately, there are many people whose lives have been anything but comfortable and secure. To help accomplish our mission, Stitched quilts are made by refugees living in our community. It’s our hope that by providing a flexible work environment along with fair wages and additional skills-based training, we can contribute something positive to their remarkable life stories.

A Perfect Gift

We have designed default quilt patterns that would be ideal for a number of life events. 

  • New baby 
  • Graduation 
  • New home 
  • Wedding 
  • Sickness 
  • Loss of loved one
  • Just because

Risks and challenges

Production for our first set of quilt rewards should take 2 months or less based on our plans to hire additional workers and finance additional equipment to guarantee these turnaround times.

We have spent the last few months vetting printing processes, materials, and working through quilting and binding techniques to ensure we can deliver a beautiful product with consistent quality. We have shipped 75 beta orders to gather feedback and improve our quality in prep for this campaign and are confident we have answered our unknowns and will be able to deliver. We have several additional refugees and sewers interested in working at Stitched, and we will start training our new team members as soon as our campaign funds.
