A Stitch in Time...

 

Skunk Mountain Sewing is a Northern Arizona grown project, started by local seamstress and designer Katie Preston. Our goal is to make durable, creative, and functional sewn goods. With a passion for vintage sewing machines, Skunk Mountain Sewing's work is done primarily on a 1940's treadle sewing machine, a Juki Industrial Straight Stitch, with help from a 1960's Brother machine, and a Singer "Patcher" treadle shoe repair machine. Whenever possible, materials used are reclaimed from thrift store or recycled garments.
