Springtime comes with the hope of weddings and school proms. Alterations for these occasions need personal attention. Beginning March 15, ME, MYSELF & I will once again be open for face-to-face appointments. Porch dropoffs will continue to be accepted. You will still need an appointment so that you will have no interaction with others customers. I will be following NYS guidance. Masks are required. Sewing lessons are still on hold.Thank you to those of you who have continued to use ME, MYSELF & I for their alteration needs during this past year.

Thank you for your patience during this COVID-19 emergency.

I will continue with porch drop off and pickup. You can call, or email for a drop off time.

NEW ADDITION: Persons who need one-on-one attention can schedule an appointment. I ask that friends and family please stay at home or stay in your car. There will be only one person in the shop at a time. Masks are required.

Sewing instruction classes are still on hold.

This past week I have been thinking of ways to help others.  It can be as easy as making a phone call to a neighbor, a friend, or a family member. Just check to see if they are okay and if they need anything. I am sure that they will appreciate knowing that someone cares.

I live in a small village with some wonderful restaurants and shops. Most are closed for the duration of this medical emergency. I sure hope that they will be able to reopen.

I received an email from a local restaurant requesting help by purchasing a gift certificate. Ordering dinner from a restaurant with curbside pickup is another way of helping. Maybe there is something you can do for your local businesses (hair salon, pet groomer, dress shop, etc.). Any birthdays coming up? Give a gift certificate to a local business instead of shopping online. And please remember your church donations. Their expenses go on, even when no one is there.

Also, consider making facial masks. There are many patterns and youtube videos available for free. Some are even no-sew.

I am here for you and I want you to know that. During these uncertain times with everything changing hour by hour, I have made some temporary adjustments, so that I can continue to serve you.

me, myself & I will be open for alterations that can be done without one-on-one contact.  This means that if you know what needs to be done (inches off, inseam length, letting out or putting in, mending, etc.) you can still have the work done.  Anything that needs fittings (prom and wedding dresses, etc.) will have to wait till this health crisis is over.

Until further notice, there will be no sewing instruction.



My business has always been by appointment only.  That isn’t changing.  You can email me at,, or call me at 518 695-4867 to set up a drop-off time. The time will be scheduled so that only one person at a time will be here.

Place your garment(s), curtains, etc. in a bag or tote. In addition, also include instructions (what you would like done), along with your name, address, email address, and phone number.

I will call you to verify that I have your item(s) and review with you what you would like to have done.

When the order is done I will contact you to schedule a pickup time.  Payment can be made in the exact amount by cash or check.

Keep safe.  I look forward to seeing you in the near future face to face once again.



One more week and this years Prom season will be over in my area of New York.

This year I had girls from Saratoga Springs, Galway, Salem, Cambridge, South Glens Falls, Hoosick Falls and Schuylerville.  Some of girls have been coming to the shop for years.  I have had the privilege of watching them become amazing young ladies.  Others, I met for the first time and look forward to seeing them again.

Mom’s, thank you for choosing me, myself & I to do your alterations.

This year the Saratoga County Fair is July 21-26.

If you plan on entering a Home Arts or Fine Arts project you must have your entry in by July 11 at 5:00PM.

You can do your entry online at:

I don’t know about other parts of our country, but here in upstate New York summer means county fairs.  Each week there is a new and exciting Fair.  The closest one to me is 10 minutes away.  It is the Washington County Fair.

People flock to it for amusement rides, competitions, and food. There are demolition derbys, musical shows, and tractor pulls.  Families spend time together.  They show their creative skills and their livestock.

Why do I write about this?  I think it is important for children and adults to share things they create.  Sewing, knitting, weaving, spinning, rug hooking shouldn’t be lost arts.   Put something that you have created in your local fair.  Whether you win a blue ribbon or not you are a winner.  You just may be the one who inspires another.

2015 Washington County Fair is August 24-30.

Entries must by done by July 24

Fall is finally here and  I am so ready to decorate my home and shop for the season.

Are you looking for something new and a little different?  Have you heard of needle felting?  I have tried it and I love it.  You don’t need a lot of supplies or need a lot of money to take part  in this activity.

This Fall look for classes in felted pumpkins, Indian corn, and maybe even a turkey.  

This October our local yarn shop is offering classes in needle felting. 


It is another Monday morning even  colder than the previous.  We are definitely on the road to Fall, but that is not all bad if you can get over the temperature.

For me, one great thing about Fall is that we have an apple orchard walking distance from here.  There is apple picking,  apple cider, and homemade cider donuts.  The aroma flow downhill inviting us to come and visit.  You need to be very strong to resist the temptation.  Those donuts are like potato chips.  You can’t eat just one.

Another great thing about Fall is that it is time for the 6th Annual Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival.   This event takes place on September 27th and 28th from 10am-5pm. Follow the link and get a coupon for $1.00 off your entrance fee.

I have a very full week ahead, so I must get to it.



Enjoy a leisurely afternoon on the spacious grounds of the Philip Schuyler House on Rt. 4, Schuylerville, this Sunday, August 10, as you visit with over 30 colonial artisans, listen to colonial music, watch a Punch & Judy show, dip candles and play colonial games, and tour the Schuyler House and herb gardens.  The event is free and open to the public from noon to 5 pm.
