Capi and Deb's Profile

About

We have been friends since 1987 when Capi asked Deb to teach her to smock. We lived near each other for almost 25 years, and only after Capi relocated to Chattanooga, TN did we decide to start working together. Thank you, Etsy.

For years Deb smocked and sewed for her daughter and now does the same for her grandchildren. She has also done custom dressmaking for children and she sold smocked dresses and doll clothes at her family's stand at Root's Market in Lancaster, PA. Lately she has become a "bag lady," enjoying selecting interesting fabrics and making purses, bags, and totes for the people she loves. Now you can own one, too.

Capi started sewing at age 5 and was encouraged to continue by her sweet mom who undid her mistakes instead of making her do it. She loves to smock, embroider, quilt, and design pretty and useful treasures.
