Meet the Seam Team behind That Sewing Place

 

Jaret

Service, Support, Education, Sales, Store Owner

Jaret started his career in a family sewing machine business when he was a young man and learned the business first hand. Eventually, his parents sold that business and retired. Soon after that, in 2010, Jaret decided to open his own business and that was the beginning of That Sewing Place. Jaret may still be young, but he has over 25 years of experience in sewing machine repair and education. Jaret’s in-depth knowledge helps machine owners find just the right comfort level to make their machine sing.

Sharon

Support, Education, Sales

Sharon started sewing as a young girl and got her own sewing machine when she was a teenager. Sewing has always been a passion. She enjoys making garmentry, home dec, embroidery and quilting. Sharon retired from a full-time career in administration in the early 2000’s. After a while, the life of leisure needed something more. She started working at That Sewing Place in September 2014 and is a Certified Embroidery Specialist.

Ute

Education - Garmentry

For most of Ute’s career she worked for a pattern company teaching consumer seminars coast to coast. Sewing and teaching are her passion. She loves sewing garments of all kinds and knows all there is to know about patterns, fabrics and how to make the best of both.

Sondra

Support, Sales

Sondra started sewing as a teenager on a treadle machine --does anyone remember these? They were a great machine! And in some cases, still are. When Sondra was 25, she got her own sewing machine – a Bernina 830. She certainly knew what she wanted! She is now retired from a full-time job. Sondra is still an avid sewist, a quilter and embroiderer. She loves spending time at That Sewing Place, meeting new people and sharing her knowledge, experience and advise.

Mikaela

Support, Sales

As one of our youngest team members, Mikaela keeps us all up to date on what the younger generation likes and dislikes. She has always had a passion towards visual arts and drawings. She is also an accomplished musician and artist. She has recently discovered the ScanNCut machine and uses her creative edge to make projects out of sign vinyl, heat transfer vinyl and paper crafting. She looks forward to meeting new ScanNCutters and giving out tips and tricks.

Marlene

Support, Sales


Lea

Support, Sales

Lea was introduced to sewing in her high school home economics classes and it took off from there. She sewed her own clothes, and then later on in life when she had her own daughters, she sewed everything for them. Her career took to a work for “another” sewing store as a manager. When we heard she was retiring from her full-time job, we convinced her to work for us. Lea brings many years of sewing, embroidery and product knowledge with her.

Diane

Education - ScanNCut

Diane’s passion is riding her motorcycle with her husband of 42 years. Unfortunately, in the winter she cannot ride, so she falls back on her second passion which is embroidering with her Brother 2500D and her Bernina 180. She is also a Certified Embroidery Specialist. Diane also gets great pleasure out of creating cute projects on her Brother Scan and Cut for family and friends. With 9 grandkids and 1 on the way there is never a dull moment, or a lack of requests for, “hey mom/Bobbie can you..... and I’d like it yesterday.”

Barb

Education - Kid's Classes

Barb’s sewing background spans the last 55 years. She started making Barbie doll clothes. As a teenager she made complete outfits for herself and her Mom. She later studied how to make upholstery, winter parkas and window treatments. Her latest conquest was into the world of quilting. She now has her own business in quilts and children’s clothes. Barb is an accomplished teacher with twenty years experience. She has recently retired from a rewarding career as a design colour consultant for a major paint store. Barb has combined all these skills and career choices and now applies them in teaching our kid’s classes. She is “so looking forward to teaching the next group of young sewists!”.
