WHO WE ARE
Hello, my name is Jessica Barrera (Kapitanski) and I'm the Founder and Owner of Sallie Tomato. Lucky for me, I’ve been around sewing and quilting all my life! I originally opened my shop in 2014 as another source of income to fund my college tuition. I began by selling items that I had sewn myself. It wasn’t until 2016 that I released my first pattern, the Puppy Pillow. Now, my passion is to design quality sewing patterns, so you can create too! My business has rapidly grown over the past few years. Sallie Tomato is now a team of over 20, hard-working individuals, dedicated to providing you with the best bag making supplies on the market and to helping you create!
WHAT WE SELL
Sallie Tomato provides sewing patterns, purse hardware, handbag zippers, cork fabric, and select sewing supplies for bag making. Each pattern is complete with step-by-step graphics to help make the written directions easier to understand. Included are many sewing techniques and tips to help you achieve a quality, finished project. Each pattern is designed to help you learn and expand your sewing skills! Each pattern is available as an Instant Download PDF file, or you may purchase a paper copy to have shipped to you. Recently, I’ve added select sewing supplies to my shop. My hope is that it will be more convenient for you to find the supplies to go along with each of my patterns.
SHOP NAME HISTORY
The name of my shop developed around my middle name, Sallie. Also, the tomato pin cushion is the main part of my name and logo design because I create sewing patterns. Thank you for visiting my website!
