The sewing started Spring 2010. I had mentioned to my husband that I wanted to start sewing and he surprised me one day with a vintage 1940s/early 50s Singer. He had researched them and found that these models could even sew through leather. Though this was not my original intention, I felt I needed to try it. After I had designed and created over a half a dozen purses, for myself of course, I found it was something I truly loved.

Each purse is designed and created solely by me and a couple of vintage Singer sewing machines.Each inside seam, leather & fabric, is double stitched with a tough upholstery thread. The purse linings are a variety of things - from vintage to upholstery fabrics. The hardware used is largely saddlery and tack hooks, clasps and buckles, so they are strong and durable.

Your new custom bag is meant to be a friend; wherever life takes you, faithfully on your shoulder.
