Roxann Mills has been sewing for 40 years. After all those years of practice, she’s now sharing her skills with the Capital region from her new
storefront. Mills’ business, Sew Creative
, offers such services as alterations, slipcovers, pillows, window treatments and more.
It’s basically sewing for you and your home," says Mills, 55 of Grand Ledge. "We’ll even go into your home and help you decorate."
Sew Creative opened its doors in October, and so far, the 850 square foot shop at 214-C S Bridge Street has been booming. Her clients include both residential and corporate customers.
"We’ve been very well received," Mills says. "I’m actually off the main road, but you can see our sign from Jefferson. We’ve been doing very well."
Mills often works in partnership with another local Grand Ledge business, Lamb’s Gate Antiques
, reupholstering vintage furniture and restoring antiques.
"I refurbish,” she says. “I like to fix things up and recycle."
The current workspace works well for Sew Creative’s sewing operations, but as Mills spends more and more time working with antiques, she hopes to expand her space to sell resale items of her own.
