A Stitch In Time

As you can see from my picture, I have had a passion for purses since I was three years old. "A girl can never have too many purses!" They are now my livelihood. I love the selection of fabrics, the creation of each purse and the excitement of going to the next show to provide for the needs to so many women. Purses have taken me to many places not found on any map; regardless, they have been exotic, exciting, and exceptional. Places such as refuge, rest, creativity, overcoming fears, refreshment, security, and a comforting sense of self. Along life's journey there are many heartaches and joys. In each, there are defining moments that produce destiny and expose gems of creativity, faith, passion, and lessons on flourishing.

Robin and her motherMy mother designed these purses in 1981 to meet the needs of the women she knew. Purses By Robin are washable, reversible, and contain many pockets. They include an adjustable strap, are light weight, and are made from denim, twill, cotton, or upholstery fabrics. They model current fashions and are a staple, essential to every woman's ensemble. It is an adventure visiting every fabric store envisioning what will be the end result of my labors on my industrial sewing machine. I have purses in boutiques in New York, Michigan, Florida, Maryland, and have sold to customers from around the world.

I have been a crafter since 1981. My children grew up at shows and learned valuable lessons from making change to communicating with all types of people. Living outside the box has always been a passion in allowing me a career path to fit life's situations and an opportunity to grow my own business. As my mother is retired now, it is up to me to keep this second generation cottage industry thriving.

Women often comment on my craftsmanship, selection of fabrics, coordinating styles, and the curb appeal of my purses. Almost weekly, I am given suggestions for improving my product, marketing, accessories, and technology of my business. I have the benefit of a kinship with my regular customers who desire to be a part of my success. I am so thankful for their suggestions and support.

I realize that there will come a day when I will have to turn the business over to the next generation; therefore, I am always planning for the continuance of Purses By Robin. In the foreseeable future, I will begin training women in my style so that they will be able to reproduce qualtiy products that made it possible for a single mother to provide for her four sons.
