Meet the Maker
I am the sole owner of Dale Rae Designs. I have around 50 years (yes, I am old!) of professional sewing experience: earned a degree in theatrical costume design (worked in the field for 5 years), spent 10 years as a professional dressmaker, had an exercise and dance wear business during the 80s and 15+ years designing and making doll clothes for a variety of dolls. Additionally, I have taught many sewing classes and workshops -- beginner - advanced.
Over the last 6 years I have sold my pop culture items at several local conventions.
In 2019 my sales booth at Denver Pop Culture Convention was named one of the "top ten surprises from day one (May 31, 2019) at Denver Pop Culture Con" in the Denver Westworld publication. https://www.westword.com/arts/...
