Nancy Seiler, 68, of South Portland owns The Drapery Trading Co. at 868 Broadway in South Portland. A seamstress for 40 years, she makes custom window treatments, bedspreads, cushions and more. “Every day is a different day. No two jobs are the same,” she said. She said it’s a challenge to get everything done on time, while juggling different projects. She also said it’s hard not knowing how busy she will be two or three weeks into the future. “I have a drapery angel,” she said, looking up. “When things get slow, my angel always comes through for me.”
