Marguerite Swope, Manufacturer
After a long teaching career at Penn State, I left academia to pursue my passion for design and sewing. I started by making things in my studio to sell on eBay, then at craft shows, then wholesale.
In 2015, a fallow factory just 30 minutes from my home was offered to me, completely outfitted, and so I have a huge work space and proper equipment.
I live in State College, PA with my husband and youngest son and am fortunate enough to have my oldest son's family (and two grandsons!) here as well.
