SAF-T-POCKETS Pattern Company was started in Portland, Oregon in 1991. Traveling safe without the encumbrance of a handbag led to the creation of SAF-T-POCKETS Patterns. These patterns focus on a safe way to dress with comfort and style. The company's vision is to free women from lugging around a purse while letting them feel confident, knowing their belongings are safely tucked away in hidden pockets.
Marsha McClintock has been a dressmaker, teacher and, for the past five years, owner of Sew Many Options Tours. Marsha has much experience in locating fabric and notion resources which she has now incorporated into her fashion tours. She has led groups to New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Paris, and Hong Kong. She has been making and wearing SAF-T-POCKETS patterns for her trips and has found the two companies are a natural combination.
