Meet Bayne Dangerfield, owner of Soda City Sewing
A little about me: For 11 years, I raised money professionally for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (via Team in Training and Light the Night). Prior to that, at Clemson, I studied engineering. I guess you would say I was destined for a career in sewing! Ok maybe not! In 2015, after the birth of Soda City Sewing’s new favorite model, Leo, I took the sewing business full time to enjoy more flexible hours and time with him. Leo, my husband Brook, and I live in a historic home in downtown Columbia, SC. (AKA Cola, AKA Soda City: Hence the name Soda City Sewing!)
In 2015, I started getting help from some amazing women! I currently have a small team of 4-8 ladies who work a few hours per week or per month from their own homes, helping to put together the clothing. Sarah, Catarina, Deanna, & Catherine help cut fabric. Mylea helps sew tags and hems pants for us. And Jan, & Pamela help serge some of the pieces. So grateful for these ladies to help me keep your orders going with a quick-for-handmade turnaround times! Thanks to YOU for supporting small businesses that can help generate a little extra, flexible, and convenient income for so many families!
I make monogrammed, appliqued, and boutique baby clothes and accessories for both boys and girls. There is a classic, Southern, or vintage feel to my clothes. I also make and monogram gifts for women such as vests, bags, shirts, and more.
I started sewing around 2010. After making some home decor projects for myself, I started making baby clothes for friends. While the early versions were pretty awful (huge thanks to friends who encouraged me anyway!), I kept working at it… And here we are today, 4 sewing machine upgrades and almost 5000 Etsy sales later!
My shop on Etsy and on this website is where most of the action happens, but I can also be found at some South Carolina craft fairs and the occasional retail location. Please see Craft Fairs tab to find me at the next show! I can also take custom orders if you email me. I occasionally take local pick up & drop-off orders, so I would love to be your local Columbia, SC seamstress or monogrammer!
