When I was quite young our family lived in a little Cape Cod on a hill. The house was located on Day Street in Granby, Connecticut. It was there that I remember the sewing machine running nearly constantly as my mother sewed everything from doll clothes to curtains. When naming my business my goal was to honor my mom and the gift she gave me by teaching me to sew.
Several moves later our family ended up in Wisconsin where I attended University of Wisconsin – Stout. I earned a bachelors degree in Fashion Merchandising and over the years worked in retail management, customer service and outside sales. All the while I yearned to do something more creative and return to my love of sewing, textiles and design. People occasionally asked me to sew items for their homes and finally in 2000 I decided to jump in completely and Day Street Designs was born.
Other things I love: color theory, mid century design, knitting, thrifting, repurposing, slow fashion and of course my boys at home.
