About Us

We - Rachel, Harley, Oscar & Sam - are a husband, wife, and dog team living on the coast of Maine. In July of 2016, just over a decade after our first date (pizza on a Friday after school), we (Harley and Rachel) finally tied the knot!

Rachel started sewing when she was about eight years old and has loved it ever since. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, she worked in industry and also created her own business designing and making handbags.

Harley joined the Marine Corps immediately after high school, deploying as a rifleman to both Iraq and Afghanistan. He is now a demolition contractor (but still has time to help pick out fabric!)

Oscar is a handsome chocolate lab. He likes swimming, catching tennis balls, and digging enormous holes at the beach. Sam is an adorable hound/boxer mix that we rescued shortly after getting married. He likes eating, snuggling, and chewing his toys. Oscar and Sam love playing and running around together. 

With shared entrepreneurial dreams and complementary skill sets, it was a natural decision for us to start our own small business, and Saltwater Fabrics was born in the fall of 2014.  Thank you for stopping by!
