Business Scene for the week of 3/20/18

ALTERATION SPECIALISTS
Blake Huhtala at Elegant Iris & The Men’s Den is pleased to announce the addition of Virginia Bartholomew to her staff. The two ladies have more than 70 years of combined experience as expert seamstresses. Bartholomew teaches sewing with the local 4-H chapters and the two of them are ready to work their magic making your clothes fit perfectly. “We have a lot of customers who will buy an outfit online, particularly prom and bridal dresses, and when the item arrives, it just doesn’t fit. Luckily we have state-of-the-art sewing sergers, blind hemmers and other machinery, so we’re able to deconstruct and reconstruct the perfect look for each figure,” she tells us.

If you’re like most people, you might have a closet full of incentive clothes. Now is the time to take them to the Elegant Iris & The Men’s Den and let the ladies give you a free consultation and quote to get you in a new wardrobe in no time. If you’ve got bridal dresses and formal gowns that need alterations, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how their rates compare to the overpriced specialty stores. Plus, prom is just around the corner and you can order the latest in tuxedos, including the popular slim fit models. They have a huge selection of fabrics, ribbons and laces, too, for your one-of-a-kind custom-designed garters.
