About Me

Melrose, MA, United States
Hi there, and thanks for visiting my Blog! How did I get started? Well, when I was pretty young, my mom taught me all the basics of sewing. It seemed to come natural to me, and by the time I was in middle school, I began to make lots of my own clothes. I did some sewing for people I knew, (including my mom!)and then bought my first sewing machine in 1986 when I decided that I would make my own wedding gown! I live in Melrose, MA with my husband and our 3 boys. When expecting our first, I started to make dolls, just in case I had a girl. I continued making and selling them as they were fun to make and customize for a special girl. I work out of my home and have had the great experience of making gowns, home fashions, dolls and doing many alterations over the years. My work has been largely word of mouth, with very little advertising. I think you will find my work unique and would like to create something special just for you!

Everyone should have a Fairy Godmother

Wondering what to do with last year's prom dress? How about donating it to North Shore Fairy Godmother Project and help another girl be the belle of the ball this year! Here's a link to their website for more information: http://northshorefairygodmother.org/index.html
For those in other parts of MA or another state, there are other "fairy godmother" sites that are all for the same purpose. The national site is: http://www.donatemydress.org/

DonateMyDress.org is a national network bringing together local dress drive organizations to help girls find out where they can donate their used dresses or get a free dress donated to them.
