The Heart and Soul behind Sixpence…

Jacqueline has an extensive background in all areas of the bridal industry. She started working as a bridal consultant while getting her degree in Fashion Design. From there, she worked alongside a well known Canadian bridal designer in their manufacturing facility in Toronto. She touched base with various jobs such as Customer Service Rep, Fit Model and being their Australian Sales Representative (yes… she got to travel to one of her favourite countries!) She has also worked at the National Bridal Market trade shows in Chicago and New York. Aside from many years in customer service, management roles and bridal consultant positions, Jacqueline is also a certified Wedding Planner! She trained with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada.

Jacqueline has always had a passion for sewing from a young age. She started an alterations/custom dressmaking company 4 years ago. She specializes in Bridal and Prom alterations.

Where the name came from…

A common question…Jacqueline’s family is all from Scotland. There is an old tradition where you put a silver sixpence coin in the bride’s left shoe on her wedding day for good luck!

“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver Sixpence in her shoe.”
