Alterations


Many of the stores are having some great winter sales! While there are some fantastic bargains out there we can all be just a little more “green” if we save some of those “whites”!

Perhaps you already have some beautiful items. Some may be heirlooms or special hand-me-downs from your family. We can help you learn how to repair or alter those items or bring them in and we can take care of them for you. Or use this as a chance to help your children get started on a lifetime of sewing!

Either way, you’ll be doing your part for our planet!

We’d would like to send out a “thank you” to all of my customers! We’ve been in business for almost 9 years now and the majority of our business is from our repeat customers and our referrals from all of you!

As a special value to our repeat customers we’ll give you 10% off on your first order during the month of July (2009) if you simply mention this web posting!

Thank you!

In fact, consider bringing a friend and taking advantage of our Two-For-The-Price-Of-One special! You and your friend can share the cost of the lesson which, in these tough economic times, can be very helpful. You will also have a sewing buddy so that as you work on your dresses you can compare your efforts, give each other ideas and suggestions and maybe even help each other through some of the more difficult steps. And besides, its whole lot more fun with a friend by your side!

We can help you select the pattern, select the appropriate fabrics, notions, and such for your dresses. At our shop we can plan your next steps, identify key sewing skills to be used and some of the challenges you will face. Then at home, you and your friend can take the knowledge from your lessons and apply that to your dressmaking. At your next lesson we will look at your progress together and help you along to the next step!

In the end you will each have a beautiful prom dress, unique to each of you. No one else at your prom could ever have the same exact dress as the one you make yourself! And, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you made it yourself!

Call us at 518-696-4867 to schedule an appointment for you and your friend to get started on your dresses!

And, after the prom, send us photos of you and your friend in your new dresses and we will post them here for all your family & friends to see!

Tis the season for all of the annual events that cry out for a special dress!

For the school age ladies, proms, junior proms and spring dances are just around the corner. For others, its fast approaching the peak of the wedding season! We can help!

If you are a somewhat experienced sewer, we can help coach you though the creation of that special outfit. Still somewhat new to sewing? Not ready to take the plunge alone? Have no fear – we can help! Come to our shop and we can help you design, select patterns and fabrics and then help you actually create the outfit.

Give us a call at 518-695-4867 and lets talk about how we can be of help.

Its time now to dig into your closets and see what’s there for your spring wardrobe! Its time to unpack those storage bins and remove those garment bags. Its time to take an inventory of what you have and determine what you will need for spring.

If you are like the rest of us, you took advantage of those end of season sales more because the price was right than because the item was a perfect fit! Optimism sometimes runs rampant during those sales.

Perhaps a few of the garments need to be altered? A little tweaking? Some adjustments? A little longer? Or even – shorter? Were you one of the lucky (read that as “hard working”) ones who stuck to your program and managed to lose weight over the winter?

If any of this applies to you and your spring wardrobe – we can help! Just give us a call at 518-695-4867!
