About Us



My husband and I have 6 children, 6 grandchildren and 3 dogs. We have also hosted 6 foreign exchange students from Brazil, Germany, and China. Our most cherished times are when the family gets together! I also enjoy traveling, gardening, hiking, camping, kayaking, birding, cooking, swimming, crafts, home remodeling, and reading. I whole-heartedly thank our loving God for all my blessings!




I have been sewing for over 40 years. My grandmother sewed and I was intrigued. But I developed an extreme interest during high school home economics classes. I truly enjoy sewing crafts, clothing and quilts.


In 1995, I opened my first sewing studio in Ohio, where I accepted alterations and custom sewing orders (bridal gowns/prom dresses, home decor, costumes, etc.). I received 2 awards for items created; "best pageant gown" and "best costume" for a beautiful baby contest. I moved to New York in 1996, where I opened a shop in my hometown. But, as my children grew and left the nest, I moved my business into spare rooms in my home for  several years. Now I am relocating to Tennessee due to my husband's new job. 




I define my success by providing:


* The highest level of customer satisfaction.
* Unique and creative custom-made clothing and accessories using a variety of  

   specially designed patterns.
* Items that are carefully and thoughtfully created in a smoke-free environment to

   assure excellently hand-crafted merchandise.
* Orders that are fulfilled quickly, packaged professionally and shipped in a timely

* Prompt and satisfactory resolution, should there be a concern with an order.
