L.A.P. of Luxury: About Us

L.A.P. of Luxury was started as a home sewing business in September of 2005. I was a frustrated artist working in the engineering field for 18 years. Lacking a hobby, I decided to resurrect my sewing machine and make some much needed curtains for my den. I realized how much I had missed working with my hands and creating beautiful things. I spent most of my childhood doing just that—designing, sewing, and crafting. After so many years working in a field that stifled my creativity, I decided to turn this hobby into a business.

Approximately 6 months later, I was offered a job with a small textile company in Hartford, Connecticut called Greenhorn Trading. There, I was responsible for all of the production of their in-house product line. I spent almost five years with Greenhorn until the owners retired in the fall of 2010, at which point I opened my own workshop taking over their bedding, table top, and nightwear collections.

While working part-time from home to build my business, I developed many long-term clients which I assist in their sewing needs as well. My experience with these clients includes Equestrian show costumes, custom t-shirts, sports team emblems, and military tactical gear to name a few.

I look forward to working with you, meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations in specialty items as well as our main line of products.

I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to my family, friends, former bosses from Greenhorn, loyal customers and colleagues for their amazing help and support during the last five years to get this business started. Without all of you mentioned above, I would not be writing this thank you for the world to see. You have all played a huge role in the success of this business with your words of encouragement, countless hours of time and services offered to me when I could not have done it alone. There is no gift large enough to express my gratitude for each and every one of your gifts to me. I am truly blessed with all of the people I have in my life.
