About Stephanie


Stephanie's creativity and passion for sewing stems from her family. She was raised surrounded by the talents of her grandmother, and aunts, all accomplished seamstresses. Her grandmother even made dresses for Stephanie and her siblings to wear every holiday and special occasion. It's not a surprise that Stephanie to began hand sewing at an early age and, with those initial projects, discovered a joy in the making process that continued into young adulthood.

Stephanie became a full time maker and creative small business owner. in 2013. Work at the studio has always focused on custom projects as getting to work one on one with clients is one Stephanie's favorite parts of the job. At first, the studio was centered around custom home decor work for Boston locals. However, as the business grew, so did Stephanie's interest in quilting. In 2016, just in time for the studio's three year anniversary, Stephanie transitioned her work to match her passion, focusing on custom memory quilts.

In her spare time, Stephanie also works on creating her own quilts and is a member of the Cambridge Modern Quilt Guild.


Our Work


Welcome to Stephanie Cave Design Studio! We're a small custom quilting and sewing studio located in Boston, MA. Stephanie Cave, who has sewn since she was old enough to pick up a needle, opened the studio in 2013, following her dream to become a creative business owner and full time maker. Growing out of custom home interior work, our studio now focuses on Stephanie's true sewing passion - quilting. All our projects, designed and handmade entirely at SCDS, range from custom memory and photograph quilts to ready made throws and wall hangings. We also offer a variety of other services from quilt repair and long arm quilting to custom embroidery and private lessons.

Custom Quilting Projects

We work one-on-one with clients to craft memory quilts, wall hangings, and pillows from t-shirts, other textiles, and photographs. Through careful consultation and a time honored craft we produce unique and thoughtful quilts that preserve memories for generations to come. For more information, see our Custom Quilts.

Ready Made Quilts

In addition to custom work, we offer a variety of quilts that are ready to purchase. These quilts are designed and handmade with care in our JP studio. Our ready made quilts feature designs that we loved so much, we couldn't make just one. To view our current selection, see our Ready Made Quilts shop.
