How does one sum up the journeys that lead my hands down an
amazing path to sewing and designing?
I can start by saying I had allot of help
along the way. I truly believe that God does everything for a reason and when
you find yourself giving up on your passions and dreams to pursue other
ventures. God has a way of making you whole again and bringing back to your
true talents and passions. I discovered my love for the arts as a young girl; I
became an amazing artist and poetry writer. One day while shopping with my mother, I purchased a needle and
thread kit and I began sewing and mending everything
I could get my hands on. But I quickly put away my passions as I approached
adulthood. After the birth of my daughter and marrying young, I found myself
taking on the corporate world at a young age.
I worked in many
areas from Legal, Telecommunication and Accounting but my favorite was the
healthcare field. I always managed to find joy in caring for the sick and
shut-in. Two years before the birth of my son Ty, I begun working on my
Bachelors in Biology, while working full-time at a CPA firm. With a full load
on my shoulders I still manage to find a few hours a week to enjoy some crafts
with my favorite two ladies Judy H. and Robyn C. Little did these two know that
they had set off a sewing explosion and my business journey begun. The name Ty’Lamer
was created utilizing the names of my favorite two people, my son Ty and my
daughter Lameria. It’s the Ty’Lamer brand to embrace all sizes and my hard work
ethics keeps me challenging myself with every item I create.
I’m proud to say that
every Ty’Lamer item has been handmade and kissed by my sewing machine.
