Leann Diercksen

Lead Seamstress

Leann started sewing in 4H. But it wasn’t until her sophomore year at Univ. of Northern Iowa, on a dare from a friend to spend the afternoon in the costume shop, that it became a career. Since then she has sewn for celebrities, and sailed the world sewing on cruise ships. Leann works with the NFL, and continues to work in theatre doing all sorts of sewing jobs from costumes to stage  skirting. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her dogs.
