About Sweat Threadz
My mission is to provide
The Benefits of Sweat Threadz Custom Apparel
Stretch or structure? Solids or Prints? Anti-wicking, anti-microbial, UV-protection? There are so many options. Choose from stock fabrics or special order to create the perfect garment for you. I use only high-quality athletic fabrics and you can be assured that your finished items will perform and fit properly for whatever activities you enjoy.
I use sewing techniques designed to reduce chafing and increase seam strength to move with you for maximum performance. Functional details like hoods, pockets, mesh inserts, zippers and contouring seams within the design, complete the ultimate garment construction.
You are a unique shape and size, and your clothes should fit! Using your individual body measurements, pattern designs are customized and combined with your choice of fabrics to fit your body and your lifestyle. Need help measuring? No problem. Contact me and I will help!

Super sturdy and great fit. Comfy and they wash great.
They are one of my two “go-to” tights for working out and love the color too!
The wide waistband feels very comfy and the tights hold my butt and thighs in without restriction! I hate going for a run and feeling my butt jiggling!! These pants actually encourage me to run in them because I don’t have to feel the jiggle! They stay in place so no need to adjust them when I’m running.
I love my tights! The level of support feels great and seems to help my legs feel better during my cardio workout. Cuts down of the love handle jiggles too
Fitness, outdoor adventures and sewing, I love them all! I know, a quirky combination, but I honestly cannot remember a time when these activities were not a big part of my life.
My mother taught me how to sew at a young age and I have never stopped. Educating myself through research, trial and error, and taking classes helped to hone this hobby into a proficient skill. Over the years I have made draperies, duvet covers, prom dresses, my own wedding dress, pants, shorts, and of course the quintessential Halloween costumes. In more recent years, I have focused on creating fitness and active wear. As friends and family began asking me to make them items for their unique sizes and lifestyles, the concept of Sweat Threadz was born. I absolutely love the process of turning a pile of fabric into a functional piece of performance clothing that fits properly.
The fitness/adventure part of me is equally as diverse. I enjoy training, competing or just being active and outdoors all year round. I am not an overly unusual size as far as ready-to-wear clothes are concerned, but I do have certain ahem, assets, that sometimes make it a challenge to find well-fitting technical and workout apparel. Making my own properly fitted apparel to wear during my active endeavors has been its own satisfying and rewarding adventure.
I look forward to sewing for you! -Lisa
