I am a partner with my husband at Brace Drapery. I began my career making draperies first in 1984-working for KenCor in Lansing, Michigan-then started my own business in 1987. I retired from sewing draperies in 2015 and now help maintain the installation services of Brace Drapery. I live near Austin, Texas with my husband and son.
Kelly Rinik, founder of Sew Lovely By Kelly, has been sewing and constructing handmade custom roman shades, curtains and cushions since 2013, when she started up her own Etsy shop. Up until recently, Sew Lovely mostly worked with customer provided material, but now she offers many fabric options for customers to select from, as well.
