A little more than a year ago, Lynda Glumac in Port Elgin decided to go to work for herself and she hasn't looked back.

Today 'Sew What?' is a thriving business and  Glumac specializes in ... what else?  Sewing.

From alterations to creating one-of-a-kind designs, draperies to men's suits, she has never been busier or happier.

"Sometimes all an outfit, dress, suit or pants needs is a small alteration to make things fit properly," says Glumac.

Whether it's a simple hemming of slacks or pants to a more intricate prom dress adjustment, Glumac's business continues to grow.

"I've also been fortunate enough to build working relationships with other seamstresses so that we learn from and help each other," says Glumac.  She also works for many retailers in Saugeen Shores helping them keep their customers satisfied.

Some of the more unusual tasks she has had is to create a cape based on the movie 'Frozen' and patching a pair of jeans with black kerchiefs. 

'Everyone is unique and sometimes so are their sewing needs," Glumac says, "and while working for yourself is not for everyone, it's perfect for me."
