Sew White – The Name Game
One of the questions I am asked most is where did the name Sew White come from so I thought I would write a little blog post to say why it’s called what it’s called. Plus with Sew White being nearly 2 years old it’s about time. Most people think it’s to do with me making/sewing things for the website and my surname.
It is a little silly but here goes.
When I was little I loved Disney movies – I’m sure we all did. My favourite was Snow White. I watched it a few hundred times easily.

When I was 5 (I think) I went to Disneyland Paris with my mum and dad and I was dressed up as Snow White the whole time! I had a little cotton version of the dress with snow white embroidered on the front. I loved that dress! I was cute if I say so myself.
I really wanted to be called Snow White partly as we had the same surname (good child logic) and my dad said that I couldn’t be Snow White but I could be SEW White as SEW are my initials. Since then the nickname Sew White stuck. Plus nicknames with a name like Sisley were very limited I only ever had the nickname ‘Sis’.I was thinking about having my little business as sisleywhite.com but in the end it was sewwhite.com which stuck. And it’s still technically my name.
I bet you didn’t think that was the reason. heehee.
