I had the pleasure of recently attending Pam Damour’s Boot Camp which teaches drapery workroom techniques. Pam holds these workshops at her home &  workshop in Champlain, NY. These are very exclusive as there are only a handful of students in attendance. During these sessions, Pam shares her 33+ years of experience in the industry. Even experienced sewers like myself come away from these workshops learn the latest techniques and have a chance to practice and sharpen our skills!

As a result of this workshop, I am now certified to teach under the Pam Damour – Damour Drapery School name!

You can learn more about Pam at her website – pamdamour.com

Look for photos of some of my projects and more info on my drapery offerings in the future!


The presentation is titled “Buzzing about Martha’s Garden”

The National Garden Show will be held at Saratoga Town Hall on July 12-13, 2014. The show runs on Saturday from 1-6pm and on Sunday from 1-4.

At 2:30, Martha, owner of me, myself & I, will offer a trunk show of her sewing and talk about how colors and patterns in nature influence her sewing.


Not a June Bride? That means there is still time to get your dress altered in time! Brides, bridesmaids, and Moms – call us at 518-695-4867 for an appointment to get those alterations made so that you look your absolute best for the special day!

Brides and Grooms to be – how about your honeymoon outfits? Why not look your best here and away! We can fine tune those outfits so that your honeymoon photos are tip-top!

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!
