Mother, daughter team enjoys business together

LAUREL — Area residents no longer have to leave Laurel to get some unique creations.

Kayla Detlefsen works on another one of her designs.

In December 2016, Janet Macklin and her daughter Kayla Detlefsen opened a store front on second street in one of the offices in the old Napa Auto parts store.
“When I was in high school I took Home Economics and hated it. I had to sew an outfit. I had to rip out and rip out and I said I’d never sew again,” said Janet.
Janet eventually started to like sewing. She sewed all her children’s clothes. I made my children’s jeans and they got to design the pockets.
“I wanted to have a serger and had to get a job. I started sewing coats for $3 a coat,” remembered Janet. A serger makes a more professional durable seam than a regular sewing machine.
