From Our Editors
As a child, Suzanne Ashley knew that one day clothing would stop growing from trees and someone would have to do some heavy stitching. So for more than 35 years, she has donned thimbles and basked in the humming heartbeat of sewing machines, crafting her own designs and improving fit and fashion for others. After a brief stint in New Jersey selling handmade accessories and imported clothing from Mexico, Suzanne returned to Lawrence to pamper wardrobes locally. Within her own Ashley Alterations, Suzanne can expertly hem a dress, take in a jacket, or use the humongous needle on the shop’s sign to ward off equipment-embezzling haystacks.
