Susan Sertain

Susan has lived in Asheville over 20 years and graduated from University of North Carolina Asheville in 1998 with a major in Communications and minor in Theatre.

As former owner of The Asheville Costume Shoppe, Susan has costumed for Mars Hill College, Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre and Asheville Lyric Opera. She has been featured in Verve magazine and her fashion designs are often seen in the Sophie magazine.

Susan’s love for hand sewing and embroidery started as a child as she learned to sew from her mother and grandmother.

Susan is a costumer and seamstress working with redesign and vintage lace, but embroidery and embellishment has her heart.
