"The success of Sew Rose is in large part thanks to the continued support of the San Lorenzo Valley and Santa Cruz County communities"
Burgundi Rose Thure
Burgundi Rose Thure is a southern California native who has spent the last 35+ years in the Bay Area. She was first introduced to sewing by her mother and both her grandmothers, and has been practicing her craft since age 11.
As a completely self taught entrepreneurial artist of custom soft goods, her goal is to guide her customers to make the best choices for their piece. She takes pride in executing their vision to the best of her abilities in a way that conveys beauty, integrity, and functionality.
Burgundi began her career in the 80’s as a costume designer for the theaters and renaissance fair of LA. Later, she became a costume supervisor in San Jose. While working in the theater, she had the opportunity to work as a stagehand for a movie filmed in the valley, called Behind the Redwood Curtain. The set designer for that movie asked if she knew how to make slipcovers, and she said yes she could, even though she had never made one before. Burgundi never turned down a challenge. The slipcover was for a tuxedo couch, and it turned out perfect! That is how her love for slipcovers was born.
Around that same time, Burgundi got her business license as Sew Rose. She began putting up Sew Rose ads in the yellow pages for clothing alterations and slipcovers. The jobs she received came in all varieties, from clothing to drapery to wedding dresses to slipcovers. She moved her business into The Pink House in 2002, and over time, the slipcover jobs began coming in more and more until finally she had to turn away requests for clothing alterations and could focus her time on her true passion: slipcovers.
