Due to a previous custom inquiry, I still had our own Coleman Stove out waiting for a carrier for it. We have kept it in its box, which is in great condition, yet transferring the box to the truck when we prepared to go camping, it would still slip around. For both my husband and I, it was just one of those things, that we simply did not want to worry about it slipping out and getting damaged. In addition, I wanted to reline my husbands corduroy jacket, yet after many washings, he didn’t want me to spend the time. He knew the time elementRead More →

This past week, I asked my husband if he would model a new mask style, that would allow one to wear their mask with an elastic to go over the head and around the neck. Those who know me, understand that my desire is never to create something fast, but rather take the time to create what a consumer would want. Fortunately, my husband is great at providing me the critique that I am looking for. In order to make this style fit best, he provided me the feedback that I was looking for, requiring that I take it apart, and make the necessary adjustments.Read More →

I have acquired a few requests for variations in the masks that I create. But two have prompted me to work on a few different designs to cover the neck area, which was the result of one who has a device on his neck due to the effects of larynx cancer; and the other a school teacher who would love something that would be easy to pull up, then when there are no students in the classroom take down while looking a little stylish. This is my first design. It is similar to that of a bandana (one layer) with an attached 2-layer mask underneath.Read More →

While working on the continuation of the Living Room update, I snuck away into the sewing room while David worked on some of the work he did not need me for. I’ve actually been working on these all week in between other activities, home updates, and sewing. In doing so, I was able to complete a couple requests plus a few others. With the following custom requests, I think I will need to provide a new, larger sized option for those with a little larger face than some. Once I receive feedback from those who acquire the masks discussed below, I will be able toRead More →

Yesterday afternoon after communicating with a friend and repeat customer discussing the details of what he was looking for in his next mask, I later received a group message in which he had shared with all his contacts. I am truly humbled by his kind words and positive feedback, while sharing with others, his personal views and endorsement of my sewing as well as the product of face masks, in which he and his wife Leisa received.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   “Friends, Customized face masks made in USA by a seamstess friend!

One thing that has become evident during this COVID-19 crisis, is that not only are supplies in limited supplies, but the shipping/mailing has had an impact. Sometimes the checks will arrive 5-8 days after being mailed, and priority mail (which I currently ship all packages) are arriving sometimes the next day, while other times 5+ days, despite my payment for 1-2 day delivery. NOTE: Since I have found a way to print labels and ship First Class, that is now an option to save on shipping costs. Sadly, this is not something that I personally have any control over, yet with the tracking I canRead More →
