In 1997, my mother got me started in the doily business sewing a doily, table runner or a dresser scarf. She taught me to sew when I was a little girl, and I've been sewing ever since. We both have sewing rooms in our homes where we love to sew. I also get to design embroidery work and then take it to the next level and sew Christmas tree skirts, table toppers, mantle scarves, and table runners with lace around them.
Mom is a seamstress by trade and immigrated from Germany to the USA before I was born. She likes to tell the story about how it took her four trips before she could finally stay. She loved America and knew that she wanted to be here. German by Heritage, but American by Heart. Mom started Doily Boutique in 1985 and participated in craft shows in NW Indiana and the Chicagoland area. Today she is retired and enjoying her crocheting where she supports St. Michael's Labor of Love. She definitely still loves creating!
