From Dressmaker to Mask Maker

From Dressmaker to Mask Maker

When my business was shut down due to the coronavirus, I knew I couldn’t just sit by and not do something. I wanted to keep my staff employed – they rely on this income to feed their families – and I wanted to help my community. And so we are producing 100% cotton denim masks. While they are not approved by the CDC, they do provide some protection from typical exposure such as going to the grocery store or walking the dog.

The response has been phenomenal. Thank you for all of the kind words, and even the tulips that were left anonymously at my back door.

We have even gotten attention from the media. The Port Washington Patch published this article.

And Fox News made this segment:

We’re all in this together, and we all can do our part – whatever that means for each of us.

Please contact me at the shop if you are interested in a mask, or in donating one to someone in need.

XOXO

Pink Aid’s mission is to help underserved local women survive breast cancer treatment with support and dignity, to provide screening to women in financial need, and to empower breast cancer survivors to heal by helping and inspiring others.

My Take on Vintage Denim Patchwork Jackets

My Take on Vintage Denim Patchwork Jackets

One of the things that I take great pleasure and pride in is upcycling and recycling vintage denim and fabircs. What’s old is new again (and again and again.) My beautiful friend and Interior Decorator Annette Jaffe is wearing in her vintage Levi jacket customized with old patchwork cashmere sweaters. Talk about comfy and warm!!!

This version even comes with interior pockets – what do you think Annette will keep in hers?

Would you like your own vintage denim jacket brought back to life? Contact me and we’ll talk!

Have a fabulous day… Nancy Sinoway
