"...needed ASAP ..."..."In need of a highly skilled seamstress with experience in Bridal and Eveningwear..."

Is it a "Shotgun Wedding"  :-)

I could not help myself ;-)

Hi Maureen. Hope you are well. Thanks for posting this here ... I've shared this information on all my networks and wish you well.

Thank you Connie for sharing my post. As you probably know, My husband and design partner, Michael lost his battle with Cancer, I have not been mentally, physically or spiritually able to do shows. I may start back slow. Michael was a master pattern maker and was brilliant at sewing! I designed and did the  hand dyeing, he is irreplaceable. I have custom orders and wedding deadlines, my couture seamstress has had a arthritis flare up! So, before I cancel orders and lose thousands of dollars I desperately need, I am hoping to hire some one...and no it is not a shotgun wedding, hahahaha, but one of the brides her fiancé is deployed overseas, and he most probably has a gun!!

Yes, Maureen, I had heard about Michael. Such a great partner for you and young and strong. So very sad.

I'll work on some connections I have in NYC and see if I can help. Take care of yourself.

Maureen, I have a friend who is pretty much exactly the person you're seeking. He's not on this site, though. Would you please send me your contact info, and I will forward it to Michael? Thanks. My email is
