Sure, it takes a lot to get to the Super Bowl... but have you ever seen a bridesmaid run time-sensitive, day-of errands in 16 degree weather while wearing 5 inch heels and a strapless dress???

Extra kudos to the ones doing it with a car full of kids!
Sorry, pro athletes, you've met your match...

Are you a 2021 bride? Planning a wedding can provoke anxiety anytime, but especially these days. So much is a mystery to a first time bride, and concern about the unknown can lead the mind to wander away from the joy and excitement of the big day to come.

We love our brides, and we want you to enjoy every step of the process! So, here are a few tips for our 2021 brides to help ease some of the stress around the dress:

1. Look up photos of styles that you are interested in prior to shopping so that your bridal associate can w**d out anything that will waste time on something you won't love.

2. If you know for certain that you want to wear a specific shoe height on your wedding day, bring a pair with you to your appointment. Some dresses just don't have the same appeal if you have to hem too much fabric.

3. If you can't decide between wearing mom's wedding dress or buying a new one, try on mom's, take a photo, and then go try on other styles you might like, and take photos you can sit down and compare without the pressure of being in the shop while you decide. YOU'RE ALLOWED TO COME BACK LATER.

4. If you are not buying something off the rack, keep in mind that some dresses can take close to 6 months to come in from the time you order them. Shipping is weird right now, so give yourself plenty of time.

5. Once you've decided on your dress, give yourself a comfortable amount of time to make alterations. 2-3 months allows for 2-3 fittings to make sure everything fits just right.
You'll need the shoes and undergarments you plan on wearing with the dress at each fitting. (We can do rushed orders, but we don't recommend them if they can be avoided.)

We know this is a strange time to plan a wedding, and we're here for you! We offer a variety of veils, sashes, jewelry and wedding masks to accent as you like. No need to order ahead of time. AND no need to worry about your dress should we have to go into another lockdown. We have the small business advantage of giving you access to your dress when you need it. We'll make accommodations as needed. We also offer complimentary dress steaming for those brides who are planning a small ceremony now and a larger reception down the road.

Ready to book an appointment??
Give us a call at (859) 442-7397. We're open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 11am-6pm and Saturday from 10am-1pm.

Memory Bears, Memory Pillows and T-shirt Quilts make the perfect, sentimental gifts this holiday season! Made from the shirts of loved ones who we hold close to our hearts, they bring soft, warm memories to us year-round... and after the year we've had, I think we could all use some warm snuggles.

Some questions answered:

Yes, we can make these memory sakes out of any sentimental cloth you bring in. Blankets, shirts of all kinds, vests, jerseys etc. As long as it can be cut and sewn, we can create with it!

The bears and pillows are $100 each, and are midsize.

The quilts are $10 per square, and we will provide the lining of the back of the quilt. We have several colors of fabric that can be used as lining, and options are based on availability at time of order placement ( fabric availability and ship times have been effected by the pandemic, and we appreciate everyone's understanding that we are working under both time and pandemic restraints).

All orders must be placed (with materials brought into the shop) by December 11th to ensure that they will be ready in time for Christmas.

So much is happening, but just because the plans are changing (again) doesn't mean we can't add our own festive touch! These are perfect for safe holiday celebrations, and safely supporting your local small businesses!

I think at this point, we could all use a break, which is the perfect reason to let one of our amazing local mom and pop (or siblings, or friends) restaurants cook you up a comfort meal, and pour a comfort cocktail or two (or just grab a bottle to go), while you pick out all of the great local services and wares you can gift to your loved ones this season... Or yourself. We're big fans of gifting yourself. 👍

We are open for all of your sewing and masking needs

We will be back open on Tuesday for regular hours of operation! Fortunately, the potential exposure to the COVID-19 virus was contained prior to contact with shop customers and employees. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Out of an abundance of caution, and concern for the safety of our customers, staff and community, we will be closed today in order to allow test results to come in after a potential exposure to the Covid-19 virus. Once test results are confirmed, we will decide how to proceed, and will be sure to keep everyone updated as we do. We were made aware of the potential risk early this morning, and are acting quickly to ensure that we limit exposure within our community. For any customers with concerns, please call 859-442-7397.

As stores and restaurants and businesses start reopening again, it will become super vital that we all do these things to protect our health. If we can keep slowing the spread of COVID-19 even while we reopen, we will be able to stay open. Here is the best link I have found with simple tips and CDC approved information on how to keep yourself and others well!
