Marcee Milletics from Croswell Michigan started her talented journey as a small child. Marcee's mother taught her and sister's Lori, Michelle and Rene to sew at 6 years of age. As a teenager, Marcee and sister's entered the "Make It Yourself With Wool Competition" in Saginaw, sponsored by the National Wool growers of America.
Talented Marcee won the competition and went on to District, State and National levels not once, but twice!
Marcee is not the only sister from this family to take the fruits of sewing, taught by their mother on to bigger and better things. Marcee's sister Rene is a Fashion Designer and attended the Center For Creative Studies in Detroit before being accepted to The Royal Academy of Arts located in London, England.
Marcee worked for her sister as a young adult and learned quite extensively how to utilize the equipment necessary for large scale design. She then went on to work for Great Lakes Limo in Port Sanilac as Head of Interior Design. "I knew the owner from the area and was asked to make his daughter a dress, which I did. He was so impressed, he hired me to do all of his interior designs for limo clientèle", says Marcee.
Door panels are just one of Marcee's specialties. This particular panel is from a 1950's Chevy truck

Marcee decided thereafter to take her talent's out on her own and MNM Upholstery was born. MNM Upholstery is approaching their first year anniversary this May. Marcee focuses on offering her clients a unique design, every time she creates a "masterpiece"!
"I can get my hands on any fabrics, from plain to the most exotic you can imagine. I even have suppliers that I can get original materials from decades ago to recreate original vehicle interiors", says Marcee.

MNM Upholstery employs some of the most talented seamstresses in the industry! They have plans to expand their business, already acquiring 20 acres of property, and build a brand new shop for designing their unique renditions of today and yesterday!
"I want to grow as BIG as I can. I just love working with people and seeing their dreams become a reality by creating exactly what they are looking for. I work with clients all over the country. All they have to do is send me the piece, pictures of what they envision and I will create it. I also fly on-site for clients all over the United States and work on their upholstery, including airplanes and automobiles!", said Marcee.
Marcee has been married to Curt Milletics for a decade and they have two children, a girl, Genevieve, age 7 and a boy Ryin 9 years old. This talented mom will be sure to pass on her traits to her children.
