Winter is the time that everyone cleans out their closets. Bring me your alterations! I am getting busy, but not so much that I can’t fit you in.

Theater review: ‘Perseverance’ a story of two determined teachers, and a strong-willed theater company

This is the last weekend to see “Perseverance” live at Portland Stage! Here is a nice review: https://www.pressherald.com/2021/10/04/theater-review-perseverance-a-story-of-two-determined-teachers-and-a-strong-willed-theater-company/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Portland%20Press%20Herald&utm_campaign=Pers%20ST%2005

The new play at Portland Stage, which faced many obstacles on its way to opening night, is about two women living 100 years apart.

In January, I had the opportunity to create some pillows from some really lovely Japanese fabrics for Marc English. They turned out really well, and it was super fun to work with Marc and to hear about his family history.

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine...

Finished this lovely coat with fabric from Ghana, from a trip that my client made last year. Super sweet story is that although this was originally made for an event that was cancelled, my client is going to wear it when picking up her husband after recovery from Cancer and successful surgery.❤️

I know that everyone is thinking about needing a mask.I am currently making some that I designed to wear over an N-95 mask, but also are very comfortable as a stand alone mask to wear for many hours, with a continuous piece of elastic that is adjustable, also available with fabric straps.I can add a nosepiece casing to insert a wire, couple of twist ties, or the top of your coffee bag.(not included). I can also make some that have the ear elastic. Every day I create a different small batch! PM for details. Donations accepted. Every mask that you donate towards equals at least 3 more that are donated.

BWW Review: Portland Stage's ALMOST, MAINE is Pure Perfection

Great review for “Almost, Maine” ! So happy to read that my costumes are “completely authentic”. (of course, I am a Mainer, after all. 😉) Also blessed to have worked with Sally Wood, Anita Stewart, John Cariani and the entire great staff and crew at a Portland Stage on this amazing production. SO much fun!
https://www.broadwayworld.com/maine/article/BWW-Review-Portland-Stages-ALMOST-MAINE-is-Pure-Perfection-20200126

Portland Stage's revival of John Cariani's ALMOST, MAINE, a play which premiered with the company in 2004, represents some of the very best work this theatre can produce. The exquisitely poetic series of vignettes about love and loss framed within the uniqueness of the Maine context, offers an eveni...

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE: A LIVE RADIO PLAY receives high praise all around.

My latest Costume Design: “It’s a Wonderful Life” at Portland Stage. It is everything that the classic movie embodies, but as a radio show! The children do most of the Foley sounds effects, as well. Fabulous actors! If you have not seen this show, I highly recommend it.

My next Costume Design which is going into Previews next week! What a great story, that many can relate to. The cast is amazing!

The future is thrown into uncertainty when rumors seep through a Detroit auto plant at the start of the Great Recession. A makeshift family of workers swap stories, share dreams and make tough choices. Dominique Morisseau, a noted new voice in the American theater, draws comparison to Lorraine Hansberry, August Wilson, and Arthur Miller.

BWW Review: Murder, Mystery, Romance in Noir Comedy at Portland Stage

A good, well written review!

Portland Stage's current production of Michael Hollinger's 2000 noir comedy set in the Cold War era skillfully weaves a tapestry of three love stories and one murder against the backdrop of McCarthyism, nuclear bombs, 50s pop culture, and zany shenanigans - all of which makes for a delightful, fast-...

Cotton flannel is one of my favorite fabrics at this time of the year. I made quite a few flannel gifts for Christmas presents, such as this bathrobe and quilted blanket.
