    MoonDragon's Sewing Services

    I provide sewing services to local residents. I do original designs in baby wear, costumes, dress making and Pagan ritual wear as well as minor alterations and repairs. If you need something stitched, by hand or machine, let me know. I have over 50 years experience with a sewing needle.

    MoonDragon's Sewing Services
    116 Boston Street #1-L (Next Door To Blue Ribbon Bakery)
    Salem, MA 01970

    I make infant and children's clothing and baby quilts to your specifications. I have been asked about pagan and gothic baby clothes and I can make these as well (I have designed and made pagan ritual wear and clothing for over 25 years). They would differ from ordinary baby clothes by colors and fabrics used (darker, richer reds, greens, blues, purples, and blacks in stretchy velvets, cottons, brocades, and other similar easily washable fabrics). I also do hand embroidery and other sewing, repairs, and minor alterations on clothing for the entire family. You buy the fabric and notions with a sewing pattern or an article of clothing you would like duplicated (I can make a pattern from an existing garment) and I can put it together for you.

    Like my grandmother, I have been a seamstress and dressmaker for over 50 years. For a sample of my sewing, please visit my Costume Index to view my daughter's wedding clothes I designed and stitched. This is my membership listing on Ebay with pictures of completed Goth-Pagan Infant & Children's wear. I also do sewing repairs, minor alterations and other types of machine and hand stitching. Please contact me with information about what you want and I can give you a quote about costs (I work inexpensively!). My email is

    My Favorite Internet Fatherhood Pictures


    It takes more than a Man to be a Father! It takes love, commitment, sharing, duty to family, support (both financial and emotional), caring, discipline, and so much more! Love and take care of your children... they are the future and may someday have to take care of you.
