Hello! My name is Amanda Henry, I am the owner & designer of Anchors Aweigh Designs. My husband, Josh, is a United States Navy Veteran & spent 11 years serving our country. We have 4 children & live in Central California. For as long as I can remember, I have been considered to be "crafty". I love experimenting with different fonts, graphics, fabrics & patterns, putting them all together & creating something awesome! New patterns & design concepts make me happy!
Anchors Aweigh Designs launched in July 2013, one month after my youngest daughter was born. What started with vinyl decals & acrylic tumblers, turned into wood signs & eventually I found my niche with t-shirts. In October 2016, I decided expand my business & learn how to sew (with lots of help from a very talented friend). After several months of instruction, pattern testing, trial & error, I finally felt confident enough to add baby & toddler leggings, harem pants, hats & headbands to my inventory. Local shoppers can find my items at Vivily Vintage & Handmade in Fresno, CA & at various shows & events throughout the valley.
