I'm Katie

FOUNDER OF EDGEWATER AVE.

I got into sewing swimwear at age 18 when I found that the swimsuits I would have loved to buy cost upwards of $100. I knew there had to be a better way, and there was!

Through an astonishing amount of trial and error, I started sewing swimwear for myself and even started a business. One day I had the urge to post a tutorial on YouTube showing how I made my swimwear. I have NO idea what brought me to that idea, but it was the best decision I ever made for this business. As you might be able to guess, those tutorials completely took off and Edgewater Avenue was officially born.

Years later, Edgewater Avenue is my full time job and there is a huge community sewing swimwear. The best part of my job is watching so many of my customers use my patterns to start their own successful swimwear businesses.

So whether you’ve never used a sewing machine in your life or you’re a seasoned pro, I invite you try out some Edgewater patterns. Soon enough you’ll be addicted to sewing swimwear like the rest of us!
