Meet Our Team

Samantha Stolinski

Owner and Designer

Welcome to our little creative space on the internet, we hope you love our designs and products. My name is Samantha. I started SMD in the Fall of 2020 right after I had my second daughter. I was in a postpartum funk and I needed an outlet for creativity. I began doing seamless designs and since then SMD has grown into more than I could have imagined. Our goal is for SMD to be a space where everyone feels welcome and everyone can learn from each other. 

Thank you for your support and we are so happy to have you here! 

Hannah Garcia

Sewing Pattern Designer

Hello! I am Hannah and I am so honored to be one of the designers here at SMD!

I am a full time Family and Consumer Sciences teacher, small shop owner, mother to two beautiful girls and a wife to my husband Sean. We live on a small little goat farm in Stedman, NC with our dogs and cats. Sewing has been a passion of mine since a very young age, and most days you can find me behind the machine creating one of a kind designs for my kiddos and Samantha Marie Design. I love all things creative and crafting, watching baseball and football with my family and I constantly have some sort of caffeine in my hands. I can’t wait to see all of your beautiful makes!

Kirstin Krug

Sewing Pattern Designer

Hey, I’m Kirstin! I am a pattern designer for Samantha Marie Design. I also have a handmade clothing shop called Naptime Creations Co. I started sewing clothing for fun in my free time in August of 2019, just shortly after my son was born (hence the Naptime Creations). I had previously sewn beginner quilts but clothing was a whole new ballgame to me. My passion continued to grow and turned into a little side business instead of just a hobby. In October of 2021, I decided to jump in feet first into a whole new sewing adventure and started pattern designing. Along with pattern designing and sewing, I am a wife and a mama of 2 beautiful babies (Aiden and Oaklynn). You will see them advertising my patterns a lot because they are rather good at it! (But I might be a little biased). We live in a VERY small town in Wisconsin of about only 40 people so I really appreciate my online sewing friends & community!

Hey! I'm Tia! My Husband Brian & I live in Western Wisconsin with our three energetic boys. I am a small shop owner and a photographer.
I have always had a passion for creating and crafting. As a young girl, I would sit alongside my mom as she sewed countless items. I picked up on it quickly and have enjoyed it ever since. After my first son was born, I picked up my machine after a few years and it was so refreshing to have some "me-time" during those newborn & toddler years and I've never looked back.
I love sharing in others success and seeing every creation come to life!
When I'm not behind my machines, you will find me enjoying the summer sun (probably at my husbands baseball games) or spending our winters on the slopes or on the trails.
I am so thankful to be apart of this SMD team and community.
