Filene’s Basement Running of the Brides Event  





Every year Filene’s Basement holds a Running of the Bride’s event, as I described in my previous blog. M&J Trimming partnered up with Filene’s to help brides-to-be get there perfect wedding dress. The doors opened at 8a.m. and we had to help the staff hold the racks down full of dresses so the running brides wouldn’t knock any of them down. Here’s a clip of the exciting event, those words can’t describe.

    I just discovered your site through the Good House Keeping site. What a find. I am interested in your videos. Can you notify me when you update them.
    I also perused your web catalog thoroughly. And found things I have been searching for. Are there more items in you catalog? If so how would I get one? I hear mention of a show room. Could you tell me where it is located,

    1. Hi Izzy,

  3. What is the best way to hang a pendant on pretty ribbon that ties around the neck? in particular I would like to know what kind of fabric to use to make a pretty, soft, (maybe 4″) necklace that would offer a soft, feminine look without fraying at all where you cut the ends.

  4. This is the first time I comment on your site, but I’ve been reading it for about a moth. I admire the passion with which you tell your stories and dream that someday I can do the same. Love

  5. I have a rhinestone stud setter and need to put rhinestones on some tshirts for myself. I have used the iron-ons and everything went well. However, my granddaughter and grandson are in sports so I need to put their team name on my shirts. I hate to pay $30 plus dollars for two tshirts and two sweatshirts. Is there a DIY video or online SIMPLE instructions on size of rhinestones to purchase and how to spell out a name and attach rhinestones. Brenda

  6. OMG… what can’t you do in crafting:) Imagination’s the limit, huh? No wonder my sister is addicted to it. I’m an art major so I appreciate people’s creations.

  7. I accidentally came on to this blog. Must say its really great. And thanks to you I made the spring accessory head band easily 🙂 I created a blog to show the pictures of things I made, of course with your blog as reference 🙂 Once again, thanks a lot 🙂

  8. wonderful publish, very informative. I ponder why the opposite experts of this sector do not realize this. You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!
