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!!
