Maker Artistry Series with Sadie & June


Popularly known for their hand-embroidered heart maps which were born out of their belief that love knows no borders.
The classic and simple red heart boldly stands out on each map. The heart can carry many meanings: where you love, where you met your love, where your heart remains, etc. In 2017, they both made the decision to embroider their customers' unique stories full-time.
Just like the red heart, your story gets stitched into a special piece that is made to be a reminder of the places, people, and adventures you hold dear.
