About this Exhibitor / Bio:
I have been working with fiber and color for over forty- five years. Currently I am designing my own woven jacquard fabrics. These fabrics are the culmination of all of my past experience. I work closely with one of the last jacquard mills in this country to ensure that my fabrics are not only beautiful but also high quality and American made. I have also integrated lighter weight fabrics into my line of jackets. Many of the silks that I use are pieced, pleated and embroidered. I now work with my daughter who has become an excellent pattern maker and seamstress. We make our own patterns and alter them for each customer to provide a custom fit. We pride ourselves on making beautiful, well fitting garments for everyone regardless of size or shape. All of our work is made in our studio in Vermont. We make all of our own trims and our buttons are made in house on reconditioned turn of the century button equipment. I am fortunate to have made a living doing what I love.
