Oh, Sew Urban by Liz Urban

Oh, Sew Urban is a collection which conceptualized and has grown thanks to Anchor No.5 Boutique.  After discussing projects and the boutique with her co-worker Nadine Medina (NadineMedinaDesigns), Liz developed the idea for her Cloth Wine Bags.

"I started with the wine bags because I thought it was a great addition to an easy gift when you go to a party or around the holidays. Everything sort of grew from there. I love going into Anchor No. 5 to bounce ideas off of Petra because she has so much experience, and from those chat sessions the collection grew to include a lot of cute things for the house - placemats, coasters, napkins, etc."

Liz picked up sewing in college, but really got into it when she started the tradition of making her own dresses to wear to her company's Christmas parties.  This led her to sewing queen size quilts for each of her siblings and falling in the love with the craft.

Oh So Urban wine bags, placemats, coasters, and napkins are now available at Anchor No.5, and Liz is very excited to introduce her new collection of aprons.  All of her products come in fun colors and prints, making wonderful accents for your home.  All are 100% cotton, making them machine washable, and are made up of contrasting fabrics and colors, whether they're reversible like the placemats or coasters; or are two toned like the wine bags.

Liz has many projects in the works, and the enthusiasm to follow through on them.

"I have a laundry list of ideas to keep the home/kitchen line fresh with table runners and whatever else I can think of. "

Custom orders are available upon request.  That includes items sold at Anchor No.5 Boutique in custom patterns or colors, and quilts of any size.

Join us this Troy Night Out to celebrate the work of one of the newest members to the Anchor No.5 family, Liz Urban.
