I grew up a "navy brat". Born in Germany,
and over many years, many moves and many homes,
I was lucky to spend my holidays and vacations
with my grandmother and
great grandmother in Vermont.
My childhood was filled with joyful days
learning all things domestic from these
incredibly talented and patient angels.
Time spent with them inspired my
passion for needlework.
Our love for family eventually led us back
home to Vermont.
I have had the honor of working with brides for more than 35 years, creating custom designs and helping brides choose from my collection of designer and original vintage bridal gowns.
In a world with so many choices, creating unique accessories has been a wonderful way to help a bride show her personal style.
Miss Allaneous began as an eclectic collection of accessories
made for brides in my Vermont salon, Sewly Yours Bridal.
Each piece of the Miss Allaneous collection is designed
and created in my garden studio in Vermont
and may be customized to each bride's wishes.
I work hard to source the most beautiful laces and trims,
many of the pieces in my collection are embellished
with antique lace and vintage treasures.
Miss Allaneous launched nationally in October 2008
and is now available in salons across the USA, Japan,
and even Australia and Tasmania!
After 25 years owning and operating a busy bridal salon,
I found I could build my new private studio in the gardens
of my home in Vermont and in 2014,
the next phase of Miss Allaneous began.
My days are now filled with pursuing my craft,
time with my gardens and my grandbabies.
~ The collection and my family continue to grow happily ~
My very best wishes to all brides; past, present and future,
