Modern American Vintage tools are the perfect combination of form meets function. Crafting heirloom quilts with heirloom-quality products makes the sewing process even more fun! I love this company and hope they continue expanding their handmade sewing tool selection.

Chris creates the most beautiful handmade sewing tools. I find myself reaching for my seam ripper often...if we need to seam rip let’s do it in style! 😄 And as a hand quilter, I really enjoy using the Hera marker to mark my quilting lines. It’s such a treat having beautiful and functional sewing tools!

I am not much for fads or the newest gadget. But a beautifully created handmade tool, gets me every single time. I simply cannot say enough good things about how beautiful these tools are and how good they feel in my hand and how much I am enjoying using them! This might sound funny... but I feel like these are "grown up" quilting tools and I adore them. Well done Chris!

The first time I ever saw these handmade tools, I just knew I needed a set. They are hands down the most beautifully crafted tools I've ever used and I'm so grateful they exist. Using handmade tools to make handmade quilts, to me, is such a beautiful thing and just elevates the entire experience as a quilter. The tools are not only gorgeous but they’re also really comfortable to use. I really can't recommend Chris's work enough. These are the types of tools you will want to pass down to future generations of quilters.

The craftsmanship of Modern American Vintage tools is outstanding. They're not only functional and well-made, but truly works-of-art. I anticipate them not only being enjoyed and well-loved by myself, but future generations of quilt makers as well. Thanks, Chris, for sharing your talent with us sewists!

I like how they feel and smell. Especially the seam ripper is my best pal now!
