How It All Began
Hello! Abby here, owner of Pincushion. I started this business with the dream of having a co-working space for the creative minds of Las Vegas. When I moved 5 years ago, I immediately fell in love with the creative energy of this city. I have been inspired by each and every person I have worked with and I have been developing the idea for Pincushion ever since I moved here. But first, here's a little bit about my journey.
I hail from Wichita, Kansas where I started my sewing journey. I am the third generation of stitchers; both of my grandmothers were excellent seamstresses and my mother was the mastermind behind every homemade formal dress in our house. I studied Theatre at Wichita State University and worked in the costume shop on campus. After college I worked in costumes for a few production companies and eventually I headed out west and landed here in the city of neon lights.
In my time here I have had the privilege of working with several theatre, entertainment, and production companies. It is in all of this work that I had fully developed the idea behind Pincushion. I understand the struggle of trying to create something great in a tiny space in my home. I also understand the frustration of finding the perfect piece of clothing that just doesn't fit right. I also appreciate the amazing work done by so many local artisans.
I knew Pincushion had to be a place where people could showcase their work, share creative ideas, and learn something new.
