Stitch Thru Time started in the 1960s with Old Fashioned aprons like our Grandma and Mother used to wear. We have expanded our apron line to sizes for women and girls and many pretty fabrics and styles. We have also developed our own line of microwave heating pads specializing on the neck back and the entire body. Our neck heating pad special design is the most comfortable neck heating pad on the market and all of our heating pads deliver deep heat to your sore muscles.

Old fashioned aprons are becoming extinct and they deserve to be passed on to other generations. Who does not have a memory of a mother or grandmother in an apron. Stitch Thru Time wants our children and grandchildren to have memories of home and loved ones in their old fashioned aprons. To have a memory as a child in a little apron like moms in the kitchen cooking together. It should not be just for past generations but future generations should have those wonderful memories also.

We have extended our apron line with a wide assortment of old fashioned fabrics, beautiful floral, ginghams and Holiday styles. An assortment of sizes has also been added as one size does not fit all.

Stitch Thru Time want you to enjoy your aprons just like your mother and grandmother did while keeping yourself clean.

Our apron line has continued to grow, the aprons you remember so well. We have matching mother and daughter ones, even some for a toddler as well as men and boys.

The Holidays are a special time at home in the kitchen and we want the kids to have fun in the kitchen and look like mom and grandma.

Our design department is constantly working on new items with an old flare. Ideas for our aprons were inspired from ones of our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers and designs from vintage aprons. We have taken those designs and improved on them, kept the old fashioned look while improving on their function and beauty. It is important to make sure these do not disappear, we want to preserve them and also the memories they evoke for our future generations to enjoy.

After listening to our customers on what their needs were we now have our custom designed neck, back, large and square heating pads that are unique and can not be found anywhere else. Our neck heating pad is the Cadillac of heating pads. Each heating pad is made specifically for a certain part of the body to fit comfortably, but they may be used anywhere. We have many customers that buy our heating pads for their cats and dogs.

Stitch Thru Time has been located in Arizona and Utah. We are currently nestled in a beautiful valley less then half an hour from Zions National Park, close also to Bryce Canyon, Lake Powell and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Make memories in the kitchen for dinner with family in your beautiful old fashioned apron



What is a pioneer woman?  In this time it could be about anyone who is working toward something new in life.  For me it was moving to a new location where I lived for six years off the grid with no electricity and used only generators that sometimes worked and many times did not.  I come from a larger city so I always had the conveniences of home, electricity, furnaces for heat and I lived in a finished home. 
After moving here I had to wash my clothes using an antique Maytag washing machine with a small generator running it.  For you who do not know, a small generator will usually not run a large modern day washing machine because it has a larger motor.   I used ice I bought to keep the perishables cold and had candles for light at night and usually went to bed early.  The small generator would warm up a small electric water heater, but when the generator was not working I would warm up water on the wood burning stove to wash and bath.   I have a business and sell aprons and heating pads so at that time my sewing machine ran off the small generator.  You learn what you can and cannot use at the same time when you have limited electricity. 
My husband and I built our home with a small generator and are still working it but do have electricity now.   We heat our home with wood burning stoves and with that comes making sure you have wood for the winter.  On the ranch we have gardens, greenhouses cows, chickens, a reservoir with ducks and geese and of course dogs and cats. We live up a canyon on a small ranch outside of a small town, around five hundred people now but when I moved here there were less.  My daughter Vanessa has been a big help at home and on the ranch and if hard times come she would make the best of it.




Our heart apron was on the cover of the Washington Post magazine May 4 2008

Heart apron on the Washington Post magazine

The principle use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath, but along with that, it served as a holder for removing hot pans from the oven. It was wonderful for drying children tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.

From the chicken-coop the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven.

The aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids when company came. And when the weather was cold, grandma wrapped it around her arms. Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow bent over the hot wood stove.

Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron. From the garden it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled it carried out the hulls. In the fall the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees.

When unexpected company drove up the road it was surprising how much furniture that old apron could dust in a matter of seconds.

When dinner was ready Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron and the men knew it was time to come in from the fields to dinner.

Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her Granddaughters set theirs on the window still to thaw"

It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that "old-time apron" that served so many purposes.
