Nancy's Sewing Basket is a family owned and operated store that has been in business
for over 34 years. Nancy’s Sewing

Basket was opened in the Queen Anne
neighborhood of Seattle Washington in by John and Jacqueline Rossi with their
daughter Nancy as manager. Their dream was to have a retail store that would serve
the community which their family has been a part of since
1902. Nancy's Sewing
Basket was the first new business to open on Queen Anne in many years and helped
to revive the community business district.4

The original location, ½ a block from the current Nancy’s Sewing Basket, was
opened in what long time resident
s of Queen Anne will fondly remember as Elsie’s
Five & Dime, and current residents know as Café Ladro. John Rossi was a constant
presence on Queen Anne Avenue and well known to everyone. He took pride in the
community and his business that doubled in size
in 1979 and expanded again in 1980.
For the first 6 years John could be seen every morning opening the shop, sweeping the
sidewalk and greeting customers and friends. John also worked with the community
to bring trees to beautify Queen Anne Avenue. Because

of his dedication, Queen
Anne has trees that line the Avenue today. In the spring of 1983 he received an award
from Mayor Royer for his work in the community.

In 1994 while the rest of the country was crazy
for quilting we decided to expand our ribbon
selection. The classroom space in the store
became “The Ribbon Room”. The Ribbon
Room has become a destination for our local
customers as well as
visitors from out of town.
Our cutomers tell us it is the largest ribbon
selection outside of New York. Even Susan and
Tamara, the wonderfully inspiring women who
work in the Ribbon Room are celebrities in
certain circles.

auctions, local clothing designers and programs such as Sanctuary Arts
