North Central High School Customer Spotlight

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Mar 29, 2019 6:00:00 AM

At Satin Stitches, we LOVE getting our creative juices flowing with ‘our’ talented high school show choirs. High school show choirs have moved past what the television show ‘Glee’ presented.

With Satin Stitches, I have made many dear friends over the years, and none as dear as Pam and Joe Krzyzaniak (who were my very first Satin Stitches’ ballroom clients, dating back to 1979 when Pam found me, and my Satin Stitches designs) at a Richfield Square Dance/Polka costume shop, near their home. I loved every fitting and every interaction with Pam and Joe. They showed me the ropes in the world of ballroom dance, along with lots of true kindness.

Lincoln High School Customer Spotlight

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Apr 10, 2018 1:03:02 PM

Satin Stitches created these jumpsuits for Lincoln HS back in the 2006-2007 dance season. They featured long, black velvet legs. This season, the team cut the legs to create a more contemporary looking biketard. We LOVE for our costumes to get a second life – especially ones that we LOVED, years ago.
