My wife LaRee is a dressmaker dedicated to Old World couture skill and quality. She understands the dynamics of fabric, design and drafting, the subtleties of colour and draping, technique and theme, Her well equipped sewing room occupies half the basement in our house. Perhaps a more appropriate term is 'studio'. LaRee has taught sewing for years but her real love is imagining, doing, creating.
We have been blessed with five grandchildren (soon to be six) for whom she can create garments with an exquisite "LaRee" flare! Our oldest grandson and granddaughter have modelled for Sears and The Bay department stores' catalogues in Canada.

The wealth of my family is found in ideas and inspiration.

 The Collins American Dictionary defines the Arts and Crafts Movement as "a social and artistic movement of the second half of the 19th cent. emphasizing a return to handwork, skilled craftsmanship, and attention to design in the decorative arts, from the mechanization and mass production of the Industrial Revolution."
