THERESE AND FABRICATIONS STUDIO
Therese grew up in Michigan where she learned to sew with her Grandmother by making Barbie doll dresses on a treadle sewing machine (the very one pictured below). This inspired her to earn a B.S. in Clothing & Textiles from Michigan State University.
In the course of her diverse professional career she has developed an eye for fine detail (through work in tailoring and bridal fashions) as well as an expansive knowledge of construction and fabrication techniques (working in drapery workrooms).
Therese lives in Barrington, Illinois with her husband Mike and 2 boys, Owen and Zane. Plus a wonderful coonhound mix, and a ginger cat.
