Dear Students and Bridal Clients

It is bittersweet that I make this announcement. I will be closing my business as of December 31, 2016.

I started this business in 1989 (part time) to help supplement my husband’s income and to be able to stay home with my young children. Over the years it has grown into a wonderful full-time business teaching sewing, making custom wedding gowns and bridal gown alterations. I have had the pleasure of teaching some of the most creative people in the San Joaquin Valley, many of whom I consider my friends. And working with Valley brides has been amazing. Fortunately, I did not experience the Bridezillas you see on the reality TV shows.

I will continue to work as I am not at retirement age, yet! However, I am looking forward to being able to spend more time with my family and friends who have been so supportive of me and my business especially my husband, Rick. 

Please feel free to call or text if you have any questions or concerns.

I feel very blessed to have met all of you and to be able to close my business on my terms.
