Sewing Is In Our Blood
I am a third generation seamstress. My grandmother taught my mother how to sew when she was 8 years old. Grand-moo sews only when she has too now. But she loves pulling apart many of our materials for quicker reconstruction. My mother earned a living sewing most of her life. She worked in line production in the 1970's, manufactured from home in the 80's and 90's, and turned to strictly alterations in the late 1990's.
My mom made most of my clothing when I was growing up. I was very hard to fit. I wanted to fit in with the other kids when I was a teenager and resented my handmade one of a kind wardrobe. The only sewing I wanted to learn was for my Barbie doll, she only came in a bathing suit back then, lol. My attitude changed after my first 4 years in Active Duty Army. Wearing a camouflage uniform and blending in with everyone around me, I was finally ready to learn my mother's skills so I could guarantee no one else would be wearing what I wore! Didn't take long before my friends wanted me to sew for them. Custom orders turned into making inventory for local festivals. Within a year I realized how important an online shop would be for keeping my local customers and expanding outside our area. I found a great online home with loyal customers in Etsy!
When we opened Sewsomer, mom and I were both creating the inventory. Six months later we opened Cbrendasew to expand our clientele and post vintage items. We built a duplex log cabin on the lake while I was Active Duty Army. I lived up stairs for the first five years, then after my son was born, my husband and I moved about 25 minutes away. Our shop is in mom's spare bedroom on the main floor. Hundreds of pieces of inventory, piles of jeans, racks of things to recycle, and 40 years of mom's fabric addiction take up her dining room and formal living room!
In fall of 2011 I had a son, Laken Breeze. After he learned to walk, my time for sewing inventory disappeared. I handle all the computer portion of both Etsy stores, while mom gets to have all the creative fun sewing! Next year Laken will start school and I look forward to sewing inventory again.
Looking ahead for 2016:
Cbrendasew will be closing so we can focus more on Sewsomer and build up the shop's inventory. Cbrendasew's shop inventory marked down for quick sale. We stopped vending local festivals in 2015. My son starts school in August and I return to the sewing shop to create my wearable treasures again!!
