Terry - Founder, CEO, Designer

Terry (Eleftheria or Ελευθερἰα) was born and raised in Hania, a seaside town on the Greek island of Crete. As a teen, she moved to the United States on her own and started a new life. With many close family members and ties still in Greece, she is very attuned to Greek Orthodox culture and traditions. Along with her husband, she has raised four children now ranging in age from 17 to 25.

She started her career as a surgical nurse, practicing for 20 years. Later finding herself drawn to more artistic pursuits, she worked as an interior decorator, silk-flower designer, and faux-finish and mural artist.


Jenny - Seamstress, Designer

Jenny is our head "sewist"... she sews both expertly and artistically! She has been sewing and has owned a sewing machine since she was nine years old. Although her creativity and craftiness expands to making cards and china painting, sewing has always been her love.
Jenny and Terry met as members of the Naperville Garden Club where they both shared an interest in gardening and flowers. Her quote; "I absolutely love my job and am happy to be part of Dahlia".
