From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our alterations studio specializing in bridal & formal wear alterations & redesigns, custom bridal veils & costumes, as well as sewing classes for ages 8 to adult. We pride ourselves on our quality services and exceptional customer service.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been sewing for more than 50 years. Sewing came naturally to me. It was a hobby mostly; one that gave me great pleasure knowing I had created something special. When I lost my job several years ago, I decided to take that passion to a whole new level & open my business.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with the brides; making sure their gowns fit to perfection for their special day. But I also find a great deal of pleasure and pride working with my students; teaching them this art of creating with fabrics.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I once received a phone call from a bride on a Saturday evening. She was in tears. Her gown had just come in and was too small and her wedding was the next weekend. We met on Sunday. I did a redesign of the gown into one with a corset back. The joy on her face is one of the reasons I do this.
