Pat and Gina met through The Galway Players theater group in 2016. Pat is the current president of the board and had headed the costume department for several years. Gina’s oldest daughter became interested in theater, which lead her to start helping with production costumes.

The ladies developed a friendship after doing several shows together and decided to take their love of sewing from a hobby to a career, and thus Harmony Designs was born.
