As owner of Jill”s Lingerie located in San Diego California, I developed a line of lounge wear that involved designing and developing new product and creating custom fit lounge apparel made to order for each customer. This business developed my experience in working with very light weight materials and stretch fabrics.
In 1985 I moved into the residential, commercial and marine upholstery business, opening a shop in Michigan. Woods Upholstery broadened my experience with upholstery weight fabrics. In this capacity I reupholstered, redesigned and created from scratch, residential furniture, boat seats, covers, and awnings. The shop expanded to include wicker restoration services.
Since 1990 I have worked as a pattern maker for a prominent office furniture manufacturer working with product development teams, fabric development, as well as working with the production teams and cutting and sewing departments. This experience has enabled me to develop an expertise in pattern making, prototype development, and sewing and upholstery assessment skills.
J.Woods Enterprises, llc is here to help you with your pattern making and prototyping needs whether you are creating furniture, toys, sporting goods, safety tools, health care products, theater props, costumes, after market auto products, pet products or other fabric based products. See our projects page for examples of past projects.
