Meet Emma, shop owner
Hi, I'm Emma. I learned how to sew when I was 10 years old, taught by my grandmother, and my father who owned a commercial sewing and repair shop. My love for uniquely sourced textiles has grown over the years and my interior design background has sparked a passion for creating beautiful pieces. Together, the combination brought me here. I opened Defined Designs as a pillow shop in 2017 - sharing my love for textiles and pillows with my customers.
In 2023, we rebranded to Millhaus Sewing Co. to allign more with our new line of leather bags and share the story of how the handcraft of sewing was passed down generations.
A Note from Emma:
Growing up in New England, my grandparents owned an old farmhouse on family land, it was in the family for ages. In that house on Mill St. is where I learned to sew. My grandmother and my father were both sewers and for as long as I can remember there was always fabric and sewing machines throughout the house and barn. Every summer, I chose a new pattern for my grandmother to teach me and in that house, the craft of sewing was passed on.
