Turning the page, you see another full page article titled "In stitches: A love of sewing and vintage style build a business" written by Anne Brockman, TulsaPeople Magazine editor.
The article includes a photo of Houston and Scott together in their home sewing studio with one of Houston's vintage sewing machines.
The article begins by saying, "Colorful patterns, thoughtful design and handmade touches are the elements that bind Houston Conner’s business, Houston and Scott custom pillows and home decor.
Conner’s love of sewing started early, around age 8, learning the craft from his mom and grandmother on an early 1960s Singer Fashion Mate machine and a high school home economics class. Frustrations with a modern machine turned Conner away, but as soon as the pandemic hit, he returned to the craft he loves with a purchase of a 1961 Dressmaker machine."
