Anita Cooper learned how to sew when she was 14 years old. She’s the third oldest out of 10 children – so, it was sort of a necessity.
She sewed clothing for her and her siblings, creating dresses, skirts, shirts and scarves, whatever was desired.
It became a passion of hers that branched into creating accessories such as jewelry, tote bags, wallets and pouches.
You name it, Cooper could create it.
Cooper always thought about opening a boutique to sell her work. But it was a wayside idea that burned the back of her brain, occasionally boiling to the surface and eventually simmering down to the backburner.
