I am the queen of saving money. I have have some great ways to save on a limited show budget. One of the best ways is to make my own show clothing. I have been using Suitability.com as my go to for all my pattern needs. Recently found another website that is a one stop shopping from the patterns, to the fabric and then on to the embellishments.
I asked the own to send me a little something about her business. All her information is below.
My business originated because I had three daughters showing western, hunt seat, saddle seat, gymkhana, etc. etc. Along with that, my son was riding 4-H rodeo events. I made almost all of their clothing. As time went on, people noticed the outfits and I began sewing custom clothing. My business has expanded to include not only custom clothing, but all of the supplies needed for the home seamstress to Sew Their Own Show Clothes.
I offer sewing patterns, rhinestones, fabric, lambskin, ultra suede, shirt and chap zippers, glue and hot affix applicators and other sewing supplies. I teach sewing lessons - private and group with special discounts for 4-H groups. I have written four books about sewing equestrian wear (#5 in the works) and produced two instructional sewing DVDs - one for making chaps and one for sewing a rail shirt.
You can find me online at www.showclothesunlimited.com, at multiple trade shows (Equine Affaire - ohio, Midwest Horse Fair - WI and Pinto World in OK). People are welcome to call me directly with their sewing questions and supply needs. If I don't carry something, I am more than willing to search for it. 8110-346-2305 firstname.lastname@example.org
