Growing up in the 50’s & 60’s in the Midwest was, for me, a time of great values & beauty in our American life. My mother was an attractive woman and had a great sense of style. My father was an environmentalist and entrepreneur. Both had a strong work ethic, believing that anything was possible. My family’s lifestyle guided me to take on my creative talents and in 1983 open my own business, Magnolia Lane Soft Home Furnishings, Inc. I discovered that I could transform homes and businesses into beautiful environments. In the beginning I single-handedly measured, estimated, cut & sewed and installed every project. This has evolved to my current workroom and staff of fine project managers and seamstresses.
From an early age I was instilled with a deep sense of the importance of sustainability. I worked in my father’s tree nursery, alongside my siblings. My personal life embraces a raw/whole food diet and a love of nature. My passion for a healthy environment is an integral direction for my company. I was motivated to find natural and organic fabrics and bring these to our industry with Magnolia Lane’s new Classic Naturals Collection (CNC).
