Apparently there was no relationship other than business woman to customer, and then only if you believe the story. She definitely made some of the earliest American flags, but there is no hard evidence that she made THE first one. This story was first told by her grandson 34 years after her death and 95 years after the creation of the flag.

Her biography doesn’t give that information.
The flag was all ready made by Francis Hopkins in 1776 and the fable that Washington went to Ross for a flag is made up. Congress has recognized Hopkins as the creator of the flag.
Washington, as General, instituted the award. the DC License plate design used to be patterned after the stars and bars- Washington Coat of Arms, three stars ( Red) over Two Bars. There are some who claim the American flag derives from this but this is going too far and was not endorsed by the Betsy Ross League- of Philadelphia, Naturally the Seamstress also designed the Naval flag with thriteen stars in a circle and and anchor at a 30 degree angle, still widely used as a yacht ensign.
