On Etsy since 2009

Semi-retirement has enabled me to design and create whatever I want!

After being in the tent & fabric structure business for 25 years, my personal situation changed and I found myself able to recreate my work life! I had a little bit of income to support myself, so took a little breather of a few months to regroup. Since I could sew just about anything, I put the word out and soon had customers coming to me for clothing alterations, jacket zippers, boat cover repairs, etc. During this time, I'd started feeding an interest in working with leather. After making my daughter a bag, the juices started flowing and as I was working on projects, my customers would see my work around the shop. People started placing custom orders, and I was amazed at my design sense, though there were and still are rough spots. I'm pretty much self-taught, buying books here and there and gleaning info from other sources.
In my former business, which was a fabric structure company, we used a mesh fabric that generated lots of "waste". Part of my deal as I was leaving the business, was that I would carry these scraps away. I make a myriad of bags from this polyethylene mesh, mixing it with leather or by itself creating a vegan line. Canvas is also a favorite fabric of mine. I like to combine it with leather.
I personally cut, sew and ship everything I sell, a true one-person operation!
Along with Etsy sales, I also wholesale to a couple of local shops and have a few contract jobs. I love the diversity of my work...it's never boring! In early 2015, I bought a small house, in which I live and work happily.
