It is 8 am and the temperature is 50 degrees.  The trees are already dropping their leaves.  The ground is covered with them. The tomato plants are dropping their tomatoes even before they have a chance to ripen. The trees and plants seem to know that it is almost time for their season to end.

The flower beds are now blooming in brilliant shades of yellows and golds.  The farm stands have an abundance of pumpkins and mums. These are all signs that Fall is almost here.

I hate packing away my summer clothes and bringing out the cords and long sleeves.  I don’t want to let go of my sandals and will hang in there till the last minute.

The sensible thing to do is to start bringing out the Fall and Winter clothes now.  Don’t wait till the last minute to check for missing buttons, broken zippers, and pants that need to be taken in or let out.   Are you wearing a lower heeled shoe?  Anything need to be shortened?

We want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy this long holiday weekend with family and friends!

A special offer to our seniors! For those over 60, for the month of April 2010, we are offering a discount of 10% off your orders! Just in time for everyone to take a look through their closets and take a good look at their wardrobe! Lets get ready for the warmer weather – it really will be coming soon!

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!

Prom season is fast approaching and some lucky ladies will be winning prizes – for making their own prom dresses!

The Sew Jo-Ann Prom Contest for this year has already started! You can download the entry form at this web link.

Contest entrants have a chance to win cash and prizes with the judges making their decisions based on workmanship, level of detail and originality. According to the contest rules, your fabric must come from their stores.

The design comes from you! At me, myself and I, we can help you work out the details of your design, determine which fabrics might work the best, and give you guidance on creating your pattern, fabric cutting, and of course, sewing your creation together!

The contest ends June 30, 2009 so you should start work now if you want a chance to win! Give us a call at 518-695-4867 to schedule an appointment to look at your future prom dress ideas!
