About Sew Good and Trendy

Rachel Shelton is the designer and seamstress behind Sew Good and Trendy.  She began this endeavor in 2009 because she wondered if there was an easier and more fashionable way to use reusable shopping bags.  Rachel, an avid sewer, and having a great respect for God and our planet, started looking for eco-friendly materials appropriate for creating bags. She was so delighted and inspired with all of the lovely and durable materials she found, she decided to create Sew Good and Trendy.  Creating this small handmade and eco-friendly business was a perfect fit for Rachel because it gave her a creative outlet and allowed her to show others the many lovely green materials available.   The mission of Sew Good and Trendy is to “Show the world that environmentally conscious choices can be made without sacrificing personal style and convenience.”  Rachel started with creating market totes, but now her designs include fashion purses, cross body bags, wristlets, and even reusable snack sacks! 

Rachel also wanted to show her children that no matter what obstacles we face, they can be overcome. One obstacle Rachel deals with everyday is Stargardt’s Disease (juvenile onset of macular degeneration) which has significantly decreased her vision and is uncorrectable. Rachel has not let this disease slow her down.  She completed a BS in Nuclear Engineering and now is an active mother to two darling girls. Rachel wants to show the world that ANYONE can make a GREEN difference!   She hopes you truly enjoy her designs and feel wonderful using them.
