Home is where one comes from. It all truly started in a 500 square foot cottage in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Annie’s mother would alter clothing and drapery for clients out of their little cottage, allowing her to stay at home and raise Annie and her sister. Always a mother first, even still this business grew and grew into a household name. From a young age Annie was surrounded by the most beautiful textiles known to man. Threads on her clothing and lugging fabric bolts were commonplace and consequently, a love affair was born.
