Hi, I am Teresa McNinch with R&T Designs. I have been sewing
professionally for the public 25 years.

Let me tell you how I became to love sewing as much as I do.

My father and grandfather ran saw mills. I have heard many times my dad say sawdust was in his blood. So I say that fabric is in mine.

My mother started teaching me to sew when I was almost to small to reach
the pedal on her old sewing machine. I love that old machine, as I do love
the new machines of today.

I have been a judge in many pageants and enjoy it all most as much as I
do sewing. My husband and I have 3 grown daughters that have competed
in pageants most of their lives. I made most of their pageant wear from
formal wear; sports wear, western wear, and special events. I have also made
them for other contestants as well. My husband has judged pageants as well
and helps me set up and runs the sewing machines as well as I can. We both
work together and we have a lot of fun doing this as a team.

I have made wedding gowns, bride maid dresses, christening gowns,
cheerleading uniforms, majorette uniforms and band uniforms. Baby quilts
and many other baby items. I have been making satin sashes for the past
15 years and in the last 2 years I have started making boy crowns.

When some one calls and ask me how I am doing I just say oh you
know “sew sew”, so I guess I must have fabric in my blood.

I am very proud of our products, because we put a lot of love and care in
everything we make.

Thank you for visiting us and letting me share our story with you.

Teresa McNinch
