Welcome to one of the online homes of the Purple Pincushion The Purple Pincushion is a custom sewing and alterations business located in Mayville, WI.  I opened the Purple Pincushion in 2002 specializing in alterations of bridal and formal wear with the hope that eventually I would be able to dedicate my time to my true love, designing and custom sewing.

That time has finally arrived in a most unexpected way.  This past year I put my business on hold to dedicate my time to my amazing daughter Lily-an.  For the first time in 10 years I am not chained to my sewing machine by the mad rush of the bridal season.  Alterations is a lucrative, but all consuming business.  As long as I continue to do alterations I will never have time to design or dedicate myself to the quality of custom sewing that I really want to do.  I am still unwinding from the intensity of the past  decade, but I am rapidly regaining my love for the art of sewing.
