me, myself & I update 06/03/20:

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.

Questions? Please call 518 695-4867 or email me at martha@memyself-i.com or meshermc@gmail.com.

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.

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.
