Tori James has been sewing as a hobby for 12 years ever since her oldest child was a baby, and she went into business selling purses a couple of years later. She still sells handmade purses, stockings, and for the last four years, purse sewing patterns. Tori loves sewing all sorts of things, and so many of her projects have begun after thinking, “why buy it when I can make it for cheaper and better quality?” She makes all of her own clothing and most of her kids’ clothing as well. Tori has four children ages 2 to 12, and lives in Dover, Delaware with her husband and their small brood. She has turned the dining room into a sewing studio and loves being able to work from home while her toddler plays nearby. Designing functional and unique sewing patterns is her passion!
