Thanks for the Memories

Last year our lives as a country changed dramatically in so many ways. I personally had dramatic changes that altered my life permanently. One such change was losing my business location and being unable to run my business from home due to the pandemic. It is with a heavy and hopeful heart that I announce, Rachel Moon's Alterations and Sewing Shop is no more. I am turning my motivation and energy towards my tarot business and finding new career opportunities that will further enrich my life experience and which I hope enrich the lives of others as well. Thank you all so much for your support through the years of this business in Durham and in Flagstaff. I am deeply grateful for being given the opportunity to serve you all and make your clothes and special event garments even more special for you!

Swanky, Bridal Vans!

Another project in which the client had the vision and I provided the creative skills! We took lace and beads from her mother's gown, added some rhinestones and beads from my own collection, and blinged up these kicks! Want a special pair of shoes to wear on your wedding day? Bring your creative ideas to me and I can make them a reality! 

Picnic Fun!

As of May I have not had a business location. With the pandemic and the changes in how people go to work and celebrate special events, I have made changes in how I approach my work and that has resulted changes in the type of projects I am taking on. In many ways this has been a blessing and resulted in many creative projects coming my way! 

This picnic basket lining was a first for me! The project was for a young man who wanted to take his girlfriend on a picnic for her birthday! He provided the fabric and the basket and I leant my skills to making his vision a reality! I decided to create it with French seams so that the visible seams looked clean and fully finished (shown in third photo). Such a joy to be able to contribute to someone's special occasion and get to try my hand at something new!

Appointments and Alterations Postponed

As per the recent Shelter in Place mandate put in place throughout the state, I am postponing all appointments and alterations until May 1st. This means that all appointments made for April will be rescheduled for May and all alterations due for return in April can not be returned until May. If I have your garments, please know that these items are safe in storage at the John O'Daniel Exchange which is now also closed to the public and employees. Thank you for your patience and understanding! I look forward to working with you and your pieces when we are all allowed to return to work. Be well and stay safe!
