From retrofitting the lighting to installing more efficient windows, A Stitch in Time has done much to reduce their consumption of energy. With the need for bright lighting due to the detailed work in her business, efficient lighting is important. Jackie has installed a programmable thermostat to further decrease her business’ energy use. Jackie also makes dog beds for Dessin Animal Shelter out of scrap material.

What do you think is the most challenging part of being sustainable?: “Heating and cooling because you’re trying to create a comfortable environment for customers. You have to know what your customers want.”

Hopefully the programmable thermostat will help with that challenge.
