About

 

Figgy's is a creation stemmed from love, passion & dedication. What started with the idea of a sewing company and one single pattern became the acclaimed Patterns by Figgy's and transformed yet again into the company that it was always meant to be; Figgy's. We create simple to make patterns with modern style and contemporary taste that won't be out of style in a season or two. Alongside those attributes you will find well written instructions, professional illustrations & the security of knowing that each of our patterns has been tested by professional and non-professional sewists. There is an African proverb that states "It takes a village to raise a child" and at Figgy's it is no different. Here is who works and lives in our village.

Shelly Figueroa - the heart and soul of Figgy's. It was her vision that brought Figgy's to life and her relentless dedication to where it is today. She is the co-author of the well-loved book “Sewing for Boys", Wiley Publishing 2011, a contributing designer for the book “Sewn Hats”, Wiley Publishing 2012. She is a sewing instructor for Craftsy online and in her home studio to over 320 kids and is well known at the local fabric shops in in Portland, Oregon for workshops and pattern design. Patterns by Figgys & Figgy's (2008-2011) (2011- current) has been featured on the pages of Sewing World, Sew Hip , Sew Wow, Craftzine, Making, Cloth and Simply Homemade magazines and on numerous sewing/crafting blogs around the world.

Born and raised in Westerville, Ohio, she currently resides in the “Creative Capital of the USA”: Portland, Oregon with her husband Adam and two sons. In her spare time…..um what spare time? :) You can usually find her volunteering at her sons schools, reading young adult novels, knitting while sipping lavender tea and dreaming about one day going to Hawaii!
