Greetings from the Friendly Island St.Maarten!

My name is Lyseth Olaria, 


I am quilter, sewist, and the owner of A Stitch at a Time. Originally started from my home in St. Maarten, my business has thrived as the popularity of quilting and sewing in the Caribbean has increased. With a desire to meet the growing needs of my customers, I expanded into a larger, brick and mortar location at Orange Grove Plaza, Unit 3C, where I have more room to accommodate a wider range of products and services.

My fabric collection, selected from among today’s most respected manufacturers (such as Moda, Michael Miller, Art Gallery, Classic Cottons, Benartex and Blend Fabrics includes stunning batiks, fun childrens' prints, 100% cottons, fine linens, fabrics for garment sewing, and much more!

I also carry an assortment of sewing notions, quilting tools, and patterns to support your passion for stitching, along with innovative sewing machines from Singer, Husqvarna, Brother and Bernina. 

I provide a full schedule of sewing, quilting, and garment making classes (projects include everything from handbags and pillowcases, to home decor and fashion items), where I'll give you helpful guidelines (like how to manipulate patterns to make your own unique items) to inspire your creativity and allow you to succeed on your own.

I believe it’s time to bring the women of the Caribbean together in a friendly gathering place where they can learn, share, socialize, and inspire one another as they craft beautiful handmade items from fabrics and threads. I’m passionate about teaching others the time honored skills of sewing and quilting, arming them with the knowledge and skills to enhance their hobbies.
