About the owner Nancy Horner
Nancy Horner has been creating costumes for Opera, Theater and corporate events since 2006. A life time of sewing and crafting combined with a unique combination of creativity and resourcefulness laid the stage for Nancy to launch her career in costume design. Her years of experience as an accountant, property manager, business owner, mother and homeschool teacher developed good planning, organizational and people skills so important to meeting the challenges of costuming for stage. She is adept at energizing and utilizing a paid or volunteer staff to assist with costuming.
Nancy is commited to providing quality costumes using cost effective means to make the most out of the budget available. She is capable of creating amazing items from the simplest materials but most often begins a costume with a high quailty garment found while treasure hunting at local thrift stores. This saves time and money that can be directed to the costumes and details that are most important in telling the story and portraying the director's vision.
