With 30 plus years of sewing experience, a family hunting heritage, and outdoor chores on the dairy farm, I designed my first warm outerwear to endure the Midwestern winters. The garments were sewn in our small Illinois farm shop along Rush Creek—warmed by a wood burning stove and the conversation of close neighbors.
Word spread about the products, and three more sewing machines were added to the shop to keep up with requests by local outdoorsmen and women. Several years of trade shows, product development and field trials soon put Rush Creek Originals on the radar as one of the few outdoor gear and hunting clothes businesses with a unique focus on custom-built products that are backed by skillful construction techniques.
Now located in southern Wisconsin, the passion behind Rush Creek Originals still burns. A new line of products for agricultural producers has been developed, and the hunting clothes portion of the business has moved toward a special focus on traditional bowhunting clothes.
My mission at Rush Creek Originals has been, and will continue to be, the preservation of the art of sewing to serve folks connected to the land.
