Meet Stephanie

 Welcome to “My Sewing Needle”, I’m Stephanie Grams the owner/operator of this company. I am married with many children, 6 to be exact (four living and two in heaven.) I am an accomplished nonprofit professional with a proven track record of bringing in large amounts of funds to combat homelessness in Tuscarawas County, Ohio. I now reside in Mount Vernon, Ohio.

These days you can find me educating women in business how to ‘Brand’ themselves through online tutorials and my self-published book titled, “Brand You! The Busy Women’s Reference Book”.

My sewist profession began at the age of 7 when my mother and paternal grandmother handed me a sewing box that contained a needle, thread, and scraps of fabric and told me to go try to make something (this was their way of getting me out from under their feet while they were busy sewing clothes!) Little did they know that one day those hand-sewing skills would help pay the rent and put food on the table for my children. Today you can find me building a sewist studio (sewing and artist). Perhaps you can relate to the love of sewing, the hum of the sewing machine, the feel of the thread between your fingertips, and the excitement of a finished product.

My professional background includes:

  • 1982 – current  Sewist, Educator, Outreach, Arts & Education
  • 2006-2016        Marketing and Publicity Coordinator
  • 2015- 2016       Assistant Membership Director for the Paul and Carol David YMCA
  • 2013                  Assistant Program Director for HARCATUS Tri-County C.A.O.
  • 2012                  Donations Director for “The Community Nest” program

I look forward to teaching you the art of sewing!
