Simply Notes & Totes


My name is Sherry Jones - I live with by wonderful husband of 26 years in the heart of North Carolina in a small town called Franklinville. We have three awesome children: Kelly, married with two adorable children; Katie, a newlywed and soon to be graduate from WCU and our handsome son, Kasey, a junior at WCU (Western Carolina University).

Simply Notes and Totes was started in 2005 after much prayer. My husband and I have a small (mom and pop) commercial printing company and with the changes in technology and economic conditions - our business began to take on many changes - and I needed something to do to supplement our income - After receiving a sewing machine very unexpectedly for Christmas in 2004, I felt that was an open door and my answer to prayer. 

I hope that when people/friends visit my shop that they can tell that I take great pride in trying to make the very best totes and accessories that I can. I use high quality cotton prints and try to make something for the young and the young at heart.
SN&T is a family operation. My sister-in-law, Ann, my husband, Sam and both
Katie and Kasey help with cutting, ironing and tagging.

When we aren't sewing, printing or traveling to our craft fairs, we play music together and enjoy our church family. I play piano, my husband, drums, Kasey plays saxophone, piano and sings, and our daughter, Katie plays the keyboard, flute and sings. We love the outdoors as well and like to garden and plant flowers.

I do home parties and enjoy watching the host pick out her favorite tote for hosting a party. 

Staying motivated is easy when doing something you love gives you such joy. I can have a very stressful day (in my other job) - and get behind my sewing machine and its like everything goes away - it brings me much peace.
