Hi All!
Welcome to The Emerald Studio!! The home of custom lingerie, swimwear & corsetry, classes & supplies for all!

It’s finally open!!! I’m SO EXCITED!! And this past Friday (the 13th!) I had my Grand Opening!!

I got to shake hand with all the important people in Belleville!! Here I am with the Mayor and the MPP!!

So many beautiful flowers, certificates and congratulations were sent my way! It was so amazing! 🙂 🙂

I had a lovely spread, and everyone had a chance to mingle and wander around to see the studio! I’m so happy with it!! I’ve added so many little touches, so much of it was either made by my dad (the real star behind the scenes- thanks dad!!) or it was made by me, or mom, or was in my grandmothers sewing shop!

This is the view from the middle of my shop looking towards the front, you can see my beautiful teaching tables! I can’t wait for them to be full of students!

 

Here I have some of my sewing supplies for any students that find themselves missing those things that they need!

And I have my fitting room! I’ll have to do a full fitting room tour in the future! And a special thank you to my friend for the gorgeous corset pictures- they’re perfect!

I had my clothesline of bras to show of some of my designs- of course you’ll recognize all of these! I can’t believe I had my picture taken with the Mayor and MPP in front of this wall of bras!!

As the evening went on, I brought out some more food, mom went home to get Gibby! and more friends and family wandered through to wish me well, see the studio and dream of all the amazing things to come in the future with me.

Everyone could tell that this is going to be a magical space! There is SO much coming up- I can’t even express how happy, blessed and excited I feel!

It was  a day surrounded by old friends, new friends and family- and I could definitely feel the support of all of my beautiful blog friends there with me in spirit!  I cannot wait for all that the future has to hold, this opening was one small step towards all of the amazing things to come!! I’m so happy to have you all here in this with me 🙂 Onwards and upwards!!

    I have been following your journey and am so very happy for you and I also feel…proud ( which I know seems odd since I don't know you). 🙂 I guess it's just really inspiring to see a young woman following her dreams – and doing it in such a smart and organized manner. All the best in this new endeavor of yours!

      Thank you!!! It has been the most amazing family effort! Now I need to work on that teleportation machine in the back to get all my friends here from around the world!

    Congratulations Erin! May you spend many happy hours in your shop. It does look gorgeous! Your grandma had a sewing shop? How appropriate – you're (almost) following in her footsteps! How I wish I could see it , but photo's will do for now.

      Thanks Ilna!! I have a feeling I'll be spending lots of overtime and fun hours here!! And yes, my grandma had a sewing shop! She did alterations and made wedding dresses- She would be so proud if she were here 🙂 I'll make sure to keep the photos coming for all my long-distance friends 🙂

    Wow! Way to go Erin. Your new shop looks fabulous and I love that last shot of all your friends and family stuffed in around the table celebrating. You've done amazingly well and worked so hard. Don't forget to sit back every once in awhile and enjoy your accomplishments.
