Meet Colleen Serkaian
“My passion for sewing began when I was 7 or 8 years old. My mom and grandmother, a professional seamstress, taught me to sew. From then on sewing was always a part of my life. In high school I sewed my own prom gowns. I graduated from college wearing a skirt I made between finals and graduation. And my home has been the workshop for the latest trends in décor and window treatments.
“It is amazing to me that I have over 40 years of sewing experience to offer my clients. Sewing has been such a big part of my life that to this day when I need to get centered or am looking for a creative solution to a problem, I go to my sewing room to get lost in a creative project.
“My background in sewing has helped me to design and create wonderful window treatments for my clients.”
A Passion for Fabric
“Besides maintaining the highest standards in craftsmanship, the process of choosing and combining fabrics gives me the greatest satisfaction. Helping clients to select the right type of fabric for a particular project and then bringing together patterns and colors to really “rock a room” is so satisfying.
I love meeting with clients or designers to help them decide on the elements of a project. For me, customer satisfaction means that my clients are totally satisfied with my work.”
