What kinds of things do you carry / what services do you provide?
I teach sewing, design and quilting classes.  I have a sewing program that allows Home Schoolers the opportunity to earn scholastic achievement  in Family & Consumer Sciences.  As a dressmaker, I specialize in bridal gown alterations and custom clothing.

How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
I feel as though I've been in this business all of my lifetime. I became interested in sewing at the age of ten.  I continued my studies in Commercial Sewing & Business Management.   I have been sewing for over forty years! I am achieving a lifetime dream of creating apparel and teaching others the valuable life skill of sewing.  In 2015, LEONAs GALLERY Sewing Studio took up residence at the Historic Savage Mill.  What a  wonderful back drop to be in such an historical place that speaks to the overall craft and textile industry. 

What's your favorite thing about owning your own business?

The ability to handle day to day operations that are based on my level of integrity.  Living a lifestyle that's spiritual, balanced, healthy and passionate.
