The Football That Started It All
Rachel has been sewing for friends and family since 1995, but her love for sewing began in a 6th grade home economics class. She made her first project in that class: a pillow in the shape of a football. The pillow was supposed to have six rows of laces across the top, but Rachel insisted it should have eight.
When the pillow was short two grommets, Rachel convinced the teacher to get more. The dream of the football pillow, made the way Rachel wanted it to be made, was realized! Ever since, Rachel has loved the idea of taking a piece of fabric and transforming it into something with dimension, functionality and beauty.
Rachel has passed that same passion and training on to Bryan, and they both personally train and supervise every Sewing Loft employee. Bryan has become not only an active and experienced fabricator, but the face and voice of The Sewing Loft as well.
