OWNER/DESIGNER/ HEAD SEAMSTRESS
Horseback Riding, Crafting, and Art are my three biggest passions, aside from my family of wonderful people and pets. I love to make things and am always up for a challenge.
I began sewing and doing yarn crafts as a child with my grandmothers and my mom. I feel that I was incredibly lucky to have three wonderful teachers helping me to hone my skills from a very young age. Since then my appreciation for creating things and bringing my dreams to life has never faded.
I started riding horses when I was 8 years old. As a child, I made silly costumes for the horses I rode for various halloween and holiday barn parties and events. Shortly after I began making my own saddle pads and polo wraps in many different styles.
My current horse, Amber, is a Clydesdale Cross who just doesn't fit into standard horse sized items! I began making my own fly bonnets because I was tired of the difficulty of finding ones that fit her, and disappointed by the limited selection of colors and options. Friends and barn-mates took notice of my work and began asking if I could make some items for them. The requests continued to come in and "Kins' Customs" was created!
Thanks for stopping by!
