New Wrinkles In Seweing
"This business has been successful because we have something people really need," says Mrs. June Kroenke, head of June Tailor, Inc., Hartland, Wis. The firm, launched 12 years ago, offers 24 different pressing aids for home sewers.
It all started with a red vest Mrs. Kroenke was making for her husband, Roger. "The facing was impossible to press," she recalls. To solve the problem, she worked up a design for a pressing board out of cardboard and then had a wood model made from the pattern. It proved so useful that she had duplicates of her Tailor Board made up and began selling it out of her home.
Today, the business is housed in a new manufacturing plant and operates nationwide.
June Tailor doesn't think today's upsurge in creative homesewing is a faddish trend: "With rapid advances in all fields of the home sewing industry, including patterns, fabrics, trims, sewing notions, pressing aids, etc., the home sewing movement has been built on a very solid foundation and has become an established part of the American way of life. This, along with the consumer having more and more time to use creatively, means home sewing is here to stay."
