THE PROPRIETRESS AND HER ENTOURAGE
Tifeni has been sewing since Girl Scouts, but didn’t really get the proper concept until she was waiting for her first child. Since then, she has sewn a little bit and a lot of everything. “God gave me this wonderful gift and I try to use it to create beautiful clothing and costumes for others to enjoy,” She is best known for her historically correct costumes and bridal attire. An award winning entrant in the California State Fair, she was head seamstress for a San Francisco designer, who supplied her with nothing but drawings, measurements and fabric. She designed and produced a line of folk wear clothing that sold in boutiques in Northern California, has tailored men’s suits, and costumed many a lass in theatre productions from the Wizard of Oz to Jekyll & Hyde. Although Victorian garb is her specialty, she really enjoys doing Renaissance Nobility. A western re-enactor, she creates all kinds of western wear from historical to modern rhinestone cowgirls. She currently teaches beginning through couture sewing, costuming at Hobby Lobby stores, home making, etiquette, and manages her online shoppe, Sew Creative. She taught her classes at Sky High Party Zone, in Murrieta, California. She also teaches a bible study class every Monday evening online through Masters Touch Healing School. A proud mother of 4 and grandmother of 8.
