Hello, I am Prudence, owner of
"Simply Prudence Creations". I take great pride in the quality of the
materials and the work I put into every one of the products I create. My
mother, Mary Jane Trahan, and Grandmother, Lois Trahan, encouraged and taught
me to be very precise in whatever I do. I put in a full day's work at my sewing
machine. I personally hand select and coordinate every bit of material that
goes into my Catcher Bag. I have a lot of fun mixing and matching the fabrics. I thought that
people would like to have a larger selection of fabric coordinated to match
their personality or home decor.
I have been sewing for many years
now. I am originally from Houma, Louisiana but in the year 2000 I moved to
Bangor, Maine to be closer to my Acadian roots. In 2005, I married David and
have been enjoying creating costumes like the ones at the bottom of the HOME
page. David and I enjoy traveling and visiting all the historical sites in the
Maritimes of Canada and the United States.
While attending a sewing class I
noticed some of my classmates were using a handmade product to catch their
sewing scraps. I wondered what it would
be like with different pieces of fabrics and material that I had at home from
other projects. So when I got home I sat
down and started to work on and improve what was in my vision. The design was
unique and multi-use. Originally I made them for my seamstress friends. Sometime after this my son and his friends
approached me about using these bags for holding remote controls and their batteries. After experimenting to determine the right
mix of materials and size to hold these heavier objects I settled on the design
as it is now and thus my "Catcher Bag" was born.
While I started out with a few
uses for the "Catcher Bags" my wonderful customers have provided me with
absolutely unique functions for them. To
this day, either through the Internet or at my shows my friends are always telling me about the new ways they use their "Catcher Bags". It is perfect for the Scrap-bookers out
there. You can put a lot of supplies and
paper trimmings in them. These
"Catcher Bags" can be used for TV remote controls and computer
supplies. They fit easily on most couch
or chair arms to hold papers or other supplies needed. Some of my customers have purchased them to
go over the arm of a walker or wheelchair for an elderly relative or friend for
home or hospitalization use. Handy in
your automobile to hold trash or your iPods and Cell phones, thus freeing up
your cup holder for what is was designed for.
I really have fun making these, but have really
enjoyed chatting with my customers about the excitement they wish to share
about my "Catcher Bags" which only encourages me to continue making them. You all have been so kind. You have offered
good suggestions and kindly advice. For that, I thank you all.
