Portland has been buried in snow, like the rest of New England. Today the shop is open and busy with Emily at the sewing machine. She is a student at Central St. Martin in London, a knitwear designer who is practicing her sewing/pattern-making skills while home in Maine.

Friend and customer Fran stopped by the other day with a gift for me/COREY&CO : a much-used, much-loved family sewing machine. This piece of equipment has some miles on it and awaits major rehab. I love its army green hue- reminds me of a Citroen I coveted long ago. It has joined the Rockette line-up of machines on the work table: grey daily workhorse, necessary serger, and Citroen. Thank you Fran.

oops, oops, oops. I totally forgot to take photos at the big December 3rd First Friday event. 'Twas a huge party, as crowded at times as a rush-hour subway car. But people managed to try on scarf after scarf to find just the right one. SOUTH STREET LINEN is now launched! There is still a good selection in the shop. check out ://www.southstreetlinen.com
