How did Southern Yankee happen?

I was a fashion design major, so I decided to put my sewing and creative talents to work. After graduation, I moved to NYC and worked for Perry Ellis Menswear. It was Christmas of 1998 when my latest business took off! The only problem of starting a new company, is what do you name it? Mom asked, “What best describes you?” Well…. I was born & raised in Dallas, TX and married a Yankee…

Since it was my first “married” Christmas, I wanted to do something fun & cute as our first Christmas card. As luck would have it, a sorority sister (ZTA) was opening a Papyrus store on the Upper West Side, and agreed to let me launch my line there. I have since kept busy creating handmade items made with vintage linens and other up-cycled fabrics… and haven’t stopped since! I enjoy creating all sorts of new things with old things!

So, with a little help from my husband and 3 kids, I present to you Southern Yankee.

Y’all enjoy!

Many thanks to for the amazing photos!

    My grandmother, Inez, learned to sew at a very young age. She then taught my mom, Nancy, when she was little. My mom taught me and now I am teaching my daughter…. See a trend? Please enjoy my little business... many years in the making!
