Damhsa Dresses
Kathryn Trenholme T.C.R.G

I started dancing at the age of 9 and made my first dancing dress when I was 16.  That was in the days when all the embroidery was hand stitched
and jackets were fashionable! I started teaching Irish dancing when I was 20 and have made, or helped their mothers to make, most of the dresses
my dancers wear.  I've always loved putting different colours and fabrics together and in the last few years have started doing my own designs. I have
sold dresses all around Australia and to the UK and US.  I always get excited at the prospect of designing a new dress!

Heidi Bird

In 1999, while working as a bridal and alterations seamstress I was asked to make Irish dance school dresses for a local dance school.  The
experience of working with interesting fabrics and embroidery fascinated me and led to future projects working for a rodeo costumer and as a period
clothing costumer for the State of Wisconsin Historical Society.  I am the mom of four Irish dancers and now I design and create only Irish dance
dresses.

I work out of my Milwaukee home studio and use professional digitizing software and commercial embroidery equipment to design and personalize
each dress I make.
