The booth Sewing by Sandra features custom made goods by Sandra Santos, a native of India who has lived in Carpinteria with her husband for the last 10 years. Santos offers dressmaking and alteration services. “I've been sewing for many years taught by my mother which is my passion. I've met so many wonderful people in Carpinteria who I now call friends,” reported the seamstress.
