Nikki Howard Handmade

Come See Us!

Nikki and David

Hi! My name is Nikki, and I am the owner and designer for Nikki Howard Handmade. My love for sewing started with helping my grandmother and mother with their sewing projects when I was small. In my middle and high school years, my best friend’s mother was a master at a sewing machine and could sew anything. I spent many weekends over at their house hand sewing barbie clothes for our Barbie Dolls. I dabbled with quilts for a few years before deciding that my true love (besides my amazing husband) is sewing custom bags.

I am a wife, a mother to 3 amazing boys, a gram to 3 darling grands and dog mom to 4 rescue dogs (the two pictured are our deaf girls). I love a good cup of coffee, spending time with family and friends and sitting on the beach with a book in one hand and a pina colada in the other.

This business is truly a family affair. From my mother and I doing the majority of the sewing, my husband doing a lot of the behind the scenes the work, to the kids running packages to the post office and picking up extra chores and helping load/unload the vehicles after a vendor event. Our niece Crystal oversees taking pictures for the products on the website as well as one of our models. Not by blood but definitely family is our friend, Brittany. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her. From watching our dogs while we are at expos, to helping plan our layouts, and helping set up & tear down at events, she is my “what do you need me to do?” person and for that I am so thankful.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something that you love!
