Suzi Friesen - Seamstress
Hi there! I am the seamstress and business owner of Linen and Lace. I am a mother of 4 children and have had the amazing opportunity to welcome two in laws into the family this past year. We run a family grain farming operation and are living on a growing animal hobby farm near La Crete, Alberta.
I began sewing at the age of 9 and began taking custom orders when I was 15! Sewing was something passed onto me from my mother and she has continued to inspire me throughout the years.
I've always wanted to start my own business and with only one child at home I decided that now was the time to make my dream happen.
Shirlee Friesen - Shipping
Hey! I'm Shirlee, daughter in-law to Suzi and I'm taking care of the shipping and packaging at Linen + Lace.
I love that I married into a farming family and absolutely love being outdoors and working with my hands. I love my time in the sewing room with Suzi and have learnt to sew scrunchies, tags and aprons!
I am currently working full time at Fully Promoted so I'm the face you see when you choose local pickup. I'm happy to help wherever I can with this new family business and can't wait to see where it goes!
Clairesse Friesen - Marketing
Hi, I'm Clairesse, the second oldest daughter of Suzi and I'm taking care of marketing and product design for Linen + Lace.
I am currently a university student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University and have completed my first year in the faculty of science and Horticulture.
I have spent many years in the sewing room helping my mother and am so excited to see her chasing her dreams. I love working together as a family, designing and creating new items and am excited to see where the business takes us.
