Who Am I?
I am proud to be continuing the tradition of 4 Generations of British Seamstresses. I was born in Yorkshire, England and have been sewing and designing since I was a little girl. I moved to Georgia in the 1980's after living in Italy for a couple of years where my interest in detail and craftsmanship was enhanced. I have been operating my own business since 1990's as well as contracting my services for a number of bridal stores.
I was so lucky to be born into a family of naturally talented "Creative & Strong" females! Nothing was too tough to tackle!
My Mother opened a Costume Store first then a Bridal Store in Yorkshire, England called "Something Special" in the late 70's - 90's. She is retired living in a small country village and concentrates on her Porcelain Doll Business.
But being from a creative family whose talents ranged from:
Dressmaking for Theater & Dance, Fancy Dress Costumes. Bridal & Formal Wear.
Period Doll Costumes, Needlework & Embroidery.
Water Color and Oil Painting to Home Decorating and Remodeling Projects. It just seemed so natural to go into the bridal business and work on so many beautiful gowns.
I remember it was so much fun to create and play dress-up, Bride after Bride and families became friends!
I made my first outfit at 10 years old have over 30 years of sewing experience and I am not afraid to "Tackle" anything either!
