  • I needed to incorporate my mother's veil into my wedding day, but I couldn't use it as a traditional veil (it had aged too much and was slightly discolored in places). Lynn responded quickly to my inquiry and was incredibly helpful in talking through what options I had. In the end, we decided to create two handkerchiefs using multiple parts of the veil (from appliques and lace to actual veil fabric). One would be for me and the other for my mom. The handkerchiefs were finished in plenty of time and were just beautiful. Lynn is incredibly easy to work with and very generous with her suggestions about other bridal items even if you aren't specifically using her for that service.

    What a sweet gift to give to your mom on your wedding day. I wish the embroiderer could have been a bit quicker in her turn around time as she embroidered your date and hers on the hankie for her and just your date on your hankie. I'm glad you liked the end result.
