We are thrilled to announce the addition of Bev Nokes to our Bridge Team as a workroom assistant.Bev is a native of Rolla who moved to Springfield when she attended SMSU, now Missouri State University. She’s the mother of one married daughter, Tarah, and is happily married and living in southern Springfield with her husband Dave.
Bev has been sewing since a young age. Her mother was a home economics teacher and taught Bev to sew. Bev made a lot of her own clothing growing up. She is a still a great apparel and home decor seamstress. She has a great eye for upholstery and drapery fabrics and is wonderful at color coordination. Bev is having a blast learning about upholstery and draperies and loves the Bridge work for the creative outlet that it gives her.
Bev is already a great asset to the Bridge Upholstery and Drapery workroom and is enabling us to complete projects much more quickly and efficiently. She hit the ground running by stripping furniture, cutting fabric for an upholstered chair and ottoman and learning to use the Janome and Seiko sewing machines in the shop – and that was just the first day!
Contact us if you’d like Bev and the Bridge Team to help with your next upholstery or drapery project.
