        The Sorrell Family: A Perfect Fit | Craft in America

        The Sorrell Family: A Perfect Fit explores the work of bootmaker Lisa Sorrell in the FAMILY episode. Sorrell began learning to sew at age twelve. At fifteen she was both designing her own clothing and sewing professionally. In 1990, she moved from Missouri to Guthrie, Oklahoma and began looking for work. By chance, she answered an ad for “stitching boot tops”. The bootmaking craft fascinated and challenged her in a way clothing had never done, and she quickly decided she wanted to learn to be a custom bootmaker. Lisa opened her own business, Sorrell Custom Boots, in 1995.
