Chelsea Souder - PROPRIETRESS
Chelsea Souder is the founder and owner of Sartorial Statement Company. With over twenty years of sewing experience under her belt, she began Sartorial Statement through her blog, sharing her techniques and knowledge with fellow sewing artists around the world. Recognizing that many people who would love to participate in historical reenacting lack the time or the skills to make historically accurate garments, she started the Sartorial Statement Company to serve as an opportunity to help everyone who wants to realize their dream of full participation in the historical world!
