Theresa was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At the tender age of twelve, she learned sewing from her seamstress mother, who was her inspiration. She showed all of her daughters how to sew, but Theresa was the one to pursue it. She went to Rufus King for clothing and textiles and on to MATC for tailoring. After a different career, she has returned to school at the Art Institute to study Fashion Design. She loves to sew and design clothes for herself and others. Sewing is her passion!
