Black Skirt Challenge – Ideas & Happy Hour

We had another great meet up last night where we created our black a-line skirts together! I didn’t take photos (like a doofus) but then again, they all kinda looked like black A-line skirts.

At the end of the meetup, as planned, we exchanged our 1 yard of cotton fabric that will be used to embellish our skirts. I don’t think anyone really had terrible fabric to try and embellish with (although I did end up with a pastel colored frog batik print that I am not quite yet sure how I am going to get to match to my black skirt, but dyeing the fabric, I guess is not out of the question…hmmmm….)

We decided for the next meetup, we would all wear our newly embellished skirts to the meetup. We also decided that instead of meeting at the store, we would switch our location to a nearby neighborhood restaurant and grab a drink and some snacks.

So – even if you didn’t make it out for the meetup last night and create a skirt with us, we would LOVE for you to join us in two weeks to see what everyone created, as well as just get to know you!

Sweet Tees & Crumpets

Time to have a Girls Night Out “Tee” Party !


Get your ladies together for a night of T-shirt Deconstruction.


In this private party each guest starts with a plain used t-shirt and turns it into any of our fabulous deconstructed styles.


Our instructors will teach your group the basic design & sewing skills needed to play fashion designer for the day!

Get a group of six or more ladies together and everyone will design and stitch their very own custom deconstructed t-shirt and leave with it after the party. Don’t worry, there is absolutely no sewing experience required!
You do the leg work, our staff will do the finishing touches to make sure your finished product is sturdy and professional looking when you take it home after this two-hour private party.


Check out a few of the photos, taken by photographer Adam Gallagher, of our first “Tee” Party.

How Does Custom Lettering Work

With our new fancy shmancy sewing machine, we can now do custom lettering & monogramming on just about anything we can squeeze into an embroidery hoop. We are having lots of fun monogramming and personalizing anything and everything in site. It’s adds such a nice personal touch to just about anything.

The other day, I took a little video of exactly how the lettering is done in the machine. It’s pretty cool. And keep in mind that there is no one running the machine. You just type what you want on the item into the sewing machine and let it go. Take a look:
