30 Years and Still Going Strong!

In January 2012, I will be celebrating the 30th anniversary for The Needle's Eye.  A small alteration business I started mainly from the encouragement of my late father - who realized the public need for my talent.  A talent passed down from my fashion-loving, perfectionist mother!

The Needle's Eye began as one sewing machine and a bachelors degree in Home Economics, without a vision for the future.  I was willing to "give it a try" for a few months or until something better came along.  Needless to say, nothing better came along!

Bridal gown alterations have been a big part of my business from the very beginning.  Thirty years later - I have fitted approximately 5,000 brides, altering their gowns as if it were my daughters'.  This year I had the pleasure of altering my own daughter's wedding gown!

I feel blessed to have a talent I can share with a bride striving for her perfect wedding day experience.  Everyone has a talent, but not all realize what that talent is and how to enjoy every day because of it.  Thanks Mom and Dad!!

How to Follow Blog, etc.

Since posting the contest entry (below), several people have wondered how to follow the blog.  On the right hand side of the page (actually in the column right next to this post ----->), there should be a button that says "join this site".  You then have to sign in with either your Google, Twitter, Yahoo, or AIM (AOL) account and then you will be a follower.  Each time the blog is updated, you will get an email notification.

Also, remember that the $50 gift certificate is valid for either The Needle's Eye Alterations or ETCetera!  If you are wondering what ETCetera is and what the clothing looks like, check out the website at www.etcetera.com!  Thanks and good luck!!
