Upholstery: Kristin Osborne

Kristin learned the art of sewing from her mother, who is a master seamstress working in Wisconsin.  From the time she was old enough to push a peddle on a sewing machine, she was designing and fabricating dresses, blankets, curtains and bags.  She continued working in the business around the country both working for companies and also for herself in the marine industry.


The Business
