Custom Sewing

“My brother in Omaha raised chinchillas for many years. He had given me some pelts that he could not use. I had them put away when Pat came to our community. I took them to her, asking if she could do anything with them to make a dress, or whatever. She took them and made me a beautiful black suit with chinchilla cuffs and collar, which are made to take off if I want to use other decorations on the suit. I have had so many compliments on the beauty and originality of it. Pat can do anything!!!!”

“Here is a picture of the kids in their stocking hats that you created and personalized for us with embroidery!  They were tickled. Thanks.”
Joni Burns

“We had our Christmas yesterday. We always watch the little kids open theirs first.  After they both opened their pillows, plus another family member that I can’t remember who it was, I heard someone say “I bet we have pillows too!”   So the search for pillows was on.  They all liked them. Michael asked how you got the “skull” on his pillow (I digitized his logo from his business card). But my son-in-law, Owen, is the one that was really interested and would like to have you embroider approximately 6 coats, jackets or shirts with: Owen Shaw Quarter Horses & Horseshoeing. It could be about the size of a football.   He asked if you could give him a bid.   And another thought is can you embroider caps?  (Yes I do)”

Wedding Dress Alterations

“Hi Pat,
I loved the re-working of my dress and I still think of it often. You did a great job! Still the most beautiful wedding dress I’ve ever seen.”
