About Us

 Not many people can say they love their job - I have been blessed to be one of those people. I started sewing at the age of seven. I made my prom dress, homecoming dresses and other formal wear throughout school. I later made my wedding dress, and a few other wedding dresses for friends. I had a variety of careers, but always have sewn as a hobby.  I am a Coast Guard veteran (14 amazing years) and have also worn an Army uniform working for the LANG Youth Challenge Program. Upon relocating to Minden, LA I found myself in a position to make a new career. I started out doing some small costuming jobs, and then things just grew from there!  Next thing I know, a customer convinced me to open a shop in historic Minden, on the brick road of Main Street. In the summer of 2012, I opened It's Sew Monica, LLC and quit my full time job six weeks later. I have continued to be blessed in my business and although we can sew most anything, I specialize in Bridal alterations and costume design.  The ladies that work with me are very talented and love the business as much as I do! Thanks for visiting our site, and being a part of my blessing!

Meet The Team

teacher and alterations


When you call the shop, you are most likely to hear Lisa answer the phone. She is our newest team member, having started last year. She teaches  sewing lessons, handles every day alterations, ensures our military customers are looking sharp and completes the finishing work on bridal and formal wear.



I am the owner with a terrific team of ladies! We serve not just Minden, but the Ark La Tex area as a whole. I specialize in bridal alterations and costume design. We have had international brides and  many out of state brides. (Ohio, Colorado, D.C.,Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania and more!)  I am a Coast Guard Veteran, single mom and native Californian. 

bead work, garters, veils


Kat has been with us for three years. She started while in high school and even made her own prom dress! She is excellent at bead work, custom veils and garters. Since she is attending  LA Tech (pre med) you will most likely see her on weekends and during the summer.
