Hi! I’m Janet

Janet KileJanet began sewing as a young girl under the instruction of her mother. She continued throughout her childhood and young adulthood.

She received a degree in teaching and during this time, she discovered the world of theatre and costumes. She has spent the last 10 years creating costumes for theatres, opera, and video.

As an experienced professional, Janet studied costume history and construction at the University of South Carolina, stitched for the Utah Shakespeare Company and worked wardrobe in Italy for La Musica Lirica.
