Jolene Miller's No More Nekkid Dogs!
Jolene Miller loves sewing, and admits to having a bit of a fabric addiction! She learned how to sew in school, girl scouts and 4-H clubs. Jolene sewed for her first two children, as something fun to do. They are now 35 and 31 yrs old. One day at a church function a Chinese Crested caught Jolene's eye. It was love at first sight! She went home and googled them and was totally smitten. In July of 2005 her husband bought Jolene her first crested, and shortly after that bought her a 2nd. The first one was a powderpuff and fully coated so she didn't really need to be dressed. But the second one was a hairless girl, a little tiny black beauty. Living in Utah-where it gets very cold, necessity truly became the mother of invention-and the rest is history!
Jolene opened her first Etsy shop in Febuary of 2007 and has worked for years to build her business and design unique and functional clothing for mainly Chinese cresteds. She has since been to several Chinese crested national dog shows and is widely recognized for her jammies. Cresteds are not very popular where she lives, so most people in Utah don't really dress their dogs, if they do its mainly sweaters and jackets.
NO MORE NEKKID DOGS is now a full blown business on Facebook selling to people all over the states and even internationally. Jolene loves her job, her dogs and her customers-many customers have become long time friends. Working with comfy soft knits, polka dots, stripes and animal prints are amongst Jolene's favorites. While her designs are not for everyone, No More Nekkid Dogs is known for combining patterns, colors and whimsy!
