Meet Your Mentor!

I have been in the Bridal dress business for over 30 years.  Altering wedding dresses takes special skills and knowledge. The wedding dress fit should be worthy of a lifetime of memories from a single day. 

Mentored by many wonderful bridal shops, I performed alterations for thousands of brides.  I make sure all bridal dress alterations look like a natural extension of the original dress.

I love love LOVE gorgeous laces, soft silks, and crispy taffetas.  When I walk into my sewing room and look at the beautiful dresses that need my TLC, I just smile.

Our Latest Graduate

I am so pleased to announce that Susan Ehlen has graduated from the Anderson Alterations Academy. I am so proud to have her in my group of graduate students. She is so conscientious of doing her best work and very careful about details.
Susan came into this academy with a new alterations store opening in a short period of time. Local bridal shops heard about her shop opening up and contacted her about alterations for their bridal shops. She quickly contacted me and our journey together began. Quickly!
A few days after opening her shop, she had brides coming for alterations. And it has never slowed down since. At first, we would zoom and talk through her fittings for that week. She definitely was a learn as you earn student. Gradually her skills and confidence grew to needing less zoom time. I am always so pleased to get the opportunity to zoom with her. She is a delight.
Her sewing skills are superb and she easily learned the bridal alterations. From her very first bridal gown, the quality of her work was fantastic. She is also a great business woman with great accounting skills. I feel that this skill helps her greatly in managing her time and deciding how much work she can take on without being overwhelmed.
I foresee her continuing to be successful with her business. Check out her website
Hugs going out to Susan!
