- Home Based Business
My name is Lisa Eaton. Please feel free to call me to schedule a studio appointment. 207-985-6724.
Below is a quick history of my business.
Ever since I was ten I have loved to sew. In 1986, with my Clothing and Textiles degree I started teaching home economics at a large, rural school in southern Maine. Making neckties for my husband who taught physics (hence the great selection of science and math themed fabrics on my site) is how I started my business. I made for him a bowling tie which he wore for a pendulum demonstration. That tie got lots of attention. I realized that I had the germ of a business idea and started selling neckties at craft fairs. In doing so, I had enough requests for bow ties that I started making those as well. I started to sell through mail order, and soon after through my website. In the mid nineties, with consultation from my then middle school aged stepson, I purchased the URL Bowtie.com. I will be forever grateful for that coaching from my stepson.
Even though my website is new and modern, my business goal is simple and has remained the same since I started the business in 1993: I make great ties and accessories for men and sell them directly to the customer. I have happy customers and really enjoy being in direct contact with them. I make every item that I sell. When you call Bowtie.com, unless my husband gets to the phone first, I am the person with whom you will speak. I want you to be happy with your purchases from me.
