About My Business
Smocked Treasures was founded in 1995 by Marianne Schubbe, who does all of the custom sewing for the shop. I specialize in heirloom sewing for special occasions, including baby's christening, First Holy Communion, and weddings.
In 1998, I was chosen to be in a national TV commercial along with my daughters, Maria and Laura, advertising Berninas latest computerized "Artista" sewing machine. Magazine ads for Bernina's "Portrait of an Artist" campaign, featuring my daughters and I have appeared in Martha Stewart's "Living", Sew Beautiful, Creative Needle, Threads, Sew News and various other sewing magazines. I have created numerous original designs which have been published in Martha Pullen's Sew Beautiful magazine, including my daughters First Holy Communion dresses, my signature smocked baby bonnet, my family's personalized Christmas tree skirt, Magic Hanky infant bonnet and embroidered baby quilts. Most recently in November 2003, my boys christening ensemble with detachable gown was featured and in January 2004, the back cover original pattern design was my girls smocked and embroidered a-line dress for communion.
Each item created for Smocked Treasures is made using only the finest fabrics and laces with attention to detail. Custom touches, including personalization, make each item you purchase truly a family keepsake. If there are any questions or inquiries regarding any of the items or about the shop, please do not hesitate to contact me ~ I look forward to creating your families treasures!
