Creating is my passion

My name is Geneviève Juillet and I am a craft lover! I love to create in different ways, I bake, I cook, I sew, I paint and I am also a jeweller since 2005.

My mother taught me to sew when I was a teenager. She is an excellent seamstress and she used to make clothes for my sisters and I when we were younger. She has always been an inspiration for me. I learned a lot from her.

When I had my first daughter in 2013, I started to make all kinds of things with my hands; finger puppets, wall hangings, baby mobiles. After I had my second daughter, I started to make some handmade gifts to people around me. I received a lot of compliments on my creations and it's at that moment that I decided that I wanted to try and have a second business. I wanted to share my passion for crafts and fashion.

So, I created Sweet July in 2017 making patchwork scarves and slowly adding new products to my collection. I simply love colourful pattern fabrics and I enjoy finding quality prints and fabrics for my creations.
