Dorian’s Angels Sew What?

Sofa set needs re-uphostery? – Sew What! Boat Cushions need repair? – Sew What! Patio deck in need of shades? – Sew What! Worry no more, Sew What, is the place your looking for! Dorian’s Angels had to wonderful opportunity to sew up a few things with Ms. Kate Vincent of Sew What!

Kate welcomed us to her workshop and introduced us to her friendly workers, Letty Hernandez and Sabina Ack, both of whom were pleased to be our teachers for the day. Letty and Sabina were busy working on an re-upholstery of a sofa set and Perlita wasted no time in helping Letty place the new covers.

Under the supervision of Kate the Angels were given the opportunity to make their own pillows. There are many fabrics and patterns to choose from and Kate was more than happy to lend us a helping hand and showing us the fabrics and explaining to us the quality of each type of fabric.

After having chosen our fabric we got to measuring and cutting our fabric and off to sew up our pillow covers. Letty and Sabina were very helpful and showed us step by step on how to use their machines and made sure we were doing things properly. Who would have thought the Angels would be sewing? LOL! That is the great part of our job, we experience just about everything. We actually did pretty well for our first sewing attempt and proud to have made our own beautiful, not to mention extra soft pillows.
