For Ann Pate, designing is innate. Even as a child, her creativity found its outlet in design, constantly arranging and rearranging her small bedroom. Her grandmother was a great seamstress and her father was very talented at creating custom draperies and reupholstering furniture. She opened Sugar Bakers Home Fashions over 30 years ago because she wanted to use her creative talents to help others create beautiful spaces. She is an expert seamstress, and one of very few in the Tri-state with the ability to create custom draperies. Ann finds her proudest projects are those where she can really feel like the work she and the customer have created is something that will impact their lives in a positive way for years to come.
