One stop sewing shop catering to horses and horse power. We also have a riding and boarding stable which gives lessons to able bodied and challenged riders
I was having trouble finding good quality gifts for my equestrian friends, and was also spending a good deal of time repairing my horse equipment, so decided to make it myself because of my sewing skills.
It allows me to be creative, show my personality and make money doing what I love to do.
Injury in 2007 took me from the workforce so I decided to start a business using my skills.
My husband had a stroke in 2005 and can no longer drive-since I work from home, I can take him to and from work without having to worry about my "work" schedule.
My friends have been referring work to me and giving "word of mouth" accolades. Joining the Orillia Farmers Market Association and attending market weekly has given it another boost.
The goal is to have the business and farm (lessons and boarding of horses) at a high enough income level that Todd can stay home and work with me. We would like to build a "store" on the property so that I am not working out of the basement. This is a 5 year goal.
I was the recipient of the Simcoe North Investors Group "Business Excellence" award in 2010.
With over 30 years of sewing experience, I am committed to providing quality economical sewn products for your equine and automotive needs. I will strive to make each sewing project, large or small, into a masterpiece that meets or exceeds customer expectations. By becoming a "one stop sewing shop" I can sew all objects large and small and strive to promote quality, reliability and customer service with each and every job.
Believe in yourself and your product, never be afraid to ask for help (particularly when you need it).
Live is short, live it to the fullest and be sure to take time for yourself.
One important key to success is self-confidence. An important key to self-confidence in preparation. Arther Ashe
