"Theresa did a beautiful job on my custom pillow and window seat, with great attention to detail. As a designer, I was happy to find someone local that does such beautiful work." - KV Design
Hi, I'm Theresa
Since I was twelve I’ve had a love affair with sewing and fabric. To me the process of creating something that’s never existed is fascinating!
In 2006 I met a Bed & Breakfast owner who was converting a historic carriage house into two suites. She needed custom window treatments, chair cushions, bolsters, pillows, you get the idea! After three months of fabricating soft furnishings and seeing how they helped transform her space, I was hooked. Afterwards, I started All the Trimmings and connected with decorators, interior designers, and retail clients who needed window treatments and soft furnishings. I ran this workroom until an out-of-state move in 2010.
After resettling and taking care of family concerns it was time to pursue my creative dream again. In 2018 All the Trimmings Shop, a second incarnation of my workroom, was born.
In addition to over 40 years of sewing experience I have a BFA in Communication Arts & Design, and decades of positive customer service experience working with clients and customers in some type of endeavor. From employment coaching to teaching classes, to identifying the best match for retail shoppers, I have learned how to listen so I can identify and meet consumer needs. I consider it a privilege to work with clients and earn their trust through clear communication and meticulous craftsmanship.
In 2020 I was honored to be awarded the Jill Robson Memorial New Member Scholarship by the Window Coverings Association of America. The Jill Robson Scholarship was founded to promote education in the window coverings industry.
