My name is Raisa, and I specialize in sewing, Hemming, tailoring and alterations for clothing and accessories in the greater Portland, Maine area. I was born in the small town of Plesetsk in Northwest Russia and lived in Russia for 37 years. I graduated from law school there and worked for a long time in the legal profession. But from early childhood, I was always involved in creative work, such as knitting, sewing, embroidering, crafting various things. Such activities always greatly inspired me, filled me with positive emotions. Previous generations in my family also engaged in creative work.
