I have been producing residential and business window dressings since 2003. Years ago, I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Industrial Design, and since have been a design consultant for exhibits, sign graphics, and commercial interiors. I’ve been committed that each product be original.
Today my skills have brought me to my love of fabrics for the home.I am dedicated to maintaining the home improvement industry’s reputation for high quality craftsmanship by attending workshops, trade shows, and industry events. I am constantly learning in this changing trade and appreciate challenges to coordinate the right fabrics with the correct style to compliment clients and designers.
My cozy, efficient studio is a fulfillment of my passion for design, fabrics, fine craftsmanship, and industrial independence. I have the joy of fulfilling creative orders for many excellent designers.
The “Ah, I love it!” moments are kudos I live for!
Sewing is My Passion
“What could you do for hours without looking at the clock?”
“Sewing”, I replied.
“Then do that”, said Wilma.
The sewing workroom is a quaint, 500-square-foot, stone building located on my property in the hills of Burlington Connecticut. This country setting was originally home to a Czechoslovakian lumberjack and his six children (see blog) in the early 1900s. He made wood kitchen utensils and buckets which he sold in local towns. It is now a “ladies” machine shop, restored and equipped with industrial sewing machines and large gridded tables along with tons of trims and fabrics!
