as a teenager, working at Brunswick Reupholstering Co.

This picture was taken when I was a teenager, working at the family business, Brunswick Reupholstering Co. The business had been on a "hiatus" for twenty years after my parents retired. Recently, I've resurrected the business. We're located in Brunswick, Me., we have been here for the last 50 years.
Prior to this, I worked at L.L. Bean where I was responsible for the quality for their entire indoor and outdoor furniture line.
In this picture, I'm hand sewing an outside back.....I still do this when many others who reupholster shy away from hand sewing. I think it adds that extra special touch.
