Quality Control

Every item I create leaves my home with my name on it, with my business card enclosed and with a thank you note with my contact information, therefore, I want to ensure those items are as perfect as possible.

I use a very simple yet effective, quality control tool - my iron.

I wash and iron each completed item before it goes on its way to its new home.  Ironing provides me with an opportunity to go over all the details in my latest creation - every nook and cranny.
As I iron I am always on the lookout for problem areas, such as loose or dangling threads,

missed stitches, fabric caught in a stitch or any other potential problem.

When I find a problem, I stop immediately and make the necessary repairs so I won't forget.
I continue ironing and checking until the entire item meets my approval. Once ironed / inspected, the entire outfit is ready to head to the home of my customer.

Ironing and inspecting each item before it leaves my home allows me to be sure every item is in perfect condition before shipping.
