Wedding dress designer moves showroom back to Cumberland County; business expands alteration offerings

A fashion designer that specializes in wedding dresses is moving her business back to Mechanicsburg.

Sheila Kauffman is bringing her business, Sheila Frank back to her original brick-and-mortar location at 50. W Main St. The showroom and studio is expected to open on Jan. 16 with a grand opening celebration likely in the spring.

The move back to Mechanicsburg follows a two year move to Union Street in Millersburg.

More than a decade ago, Kauffman launched her own line of clothing, Sheila Frank, with a focus on swimwear and ready-to-wear clothing. Frank is Kauffman’s maiden name. After sever years in business, she opened the showroom in Mechanicsburg in 2016 and introduced a bridal collection at the time.

Kauffman’s wedding dress collections are sold in her boutique, boutiques across the country and online. Kauffman also designs custom wedding dresses including bespoke wedding dresses.

Kauffman previously did bridal alterations but she is now doing general alterations as well for men’s, women’s and children’s clothing.

The property is currently being renovated. The boutique will be in the front of the store while the studio will be in the back of the property.

“I’m especially excited for 2021,” Kauffman said. “We are offering services and solutions that are limited in central PA. If 2020 has taught me anything, it certainly is that local small businesses are what keep this economy going. I am excited to work with the local clientele.”

Kauffman is currently accepting appointments now for the coming 2021 wedding season.

Due to COVID-19, the store will be open by appointment only during the following hours: 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday to Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Customers are also asked schedule in advance so that business can follow CDC guidelines and ensure a safe and clean space for each customer.

Inflection Resources Drilling Intercepts Third Zone of Strong Porphyry Style Alteration in New South Wales, Australia

(MENAFN – Newsfile Corp) Inflection Resources Drilling Intercepts Third Zone of Strong Porphyry Style Alteration in New South Wales, Australia

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – November 30, 2020) – Inflection Resources Ltd. (CSE: AUCU) (FSE: 5VJ) (the “Company” or “Inflection”) is pleased to provide an update from its ongoing drilling in Northern New South Wales, Australia.

Summary Highlights

  • First-pass drilling on the Macquarie target has identified a new zone of highly encouraging, intense potassic alteration, characteristic of that seen in the vicinity of Macquarie Arc porphyry systems;
  • Macquarie drill hole MACDDH001 returned the strongest, most favorable alteration drilled by Inflection to date, suggesting the Company has potentially identified a third porphyry centre. Drilling intersected intense biotite-magnetite alteration crosscut by stockwork style quartz-magnetite-biotite veins and epidote-garnet-calcite veins with biotite alteration halos;
  • The Macquarie target is located approximately 100 kilometres northwest of the Myallmundi and Trangie targets where two other potential porphyry centres have been identified; and,
  • Five additional regional targets have been tested and nine step-out holes completed on the Myallmundi target, which has returned additional zones of favourable alteration.

Dr. Stuart Smith, Director and Head of the Company’s Technical Committee, states, “The strong alteration and veining encountered at the Macquarie target, over 100 kilometres north of the previously encountered Trangie and Myallmundi targets, is extremely encouraging and provides validation for Inflection’s regional targeting model. Further encouragement has also been returned from follow-up, step-out drilling at Myallmundi, including the highly significant occurrence of a compositionally diverse, potassically altered intrusive complex. Only wide-spaced drilling has been conducted in the three areas identified so far and abundant space remains for any of them to host a porphyry system of significance.”

Drilling Update

Subsequent to Inflection’s news release dated October 19, 2020, five additional regional targets including Macquarie, Boggy, Moonagee, Meringo and Belaringar have been tested with a total of nine drill holes. Nine step-out drill holes were also completed on the Myallmundi Target.

Previous drilling at Myallmundi (Inflection news release dated September 2, 2020) identified highly encouraging alteration consisting of several generations of vein stockwork comprising chlorite-magnetite, quartz-carbonate and epidote-quartz carbonate, with traces of chalcopyrite and bornite. This vein and alteration assemblage is considered classic early potassic alteration overprinted by propylitic alteration and is indicative of alteration associated with other Macquarie Arc porphyry systems.

As part of the Northern NSW first-pass drill program, a total of twenty-seven holes comprised of 5,356 metres of drilling have now been completed, testing ten targets. Seven of these targets are porphyry targets, two are intrusion-associated targets and one a mesothermal vein target. It is highly encouraging to report that six targets have returned significant alteration and minor copper mineralisation which warrant follow up drilling. These targets comprise Macquarie, Trangie, Myallmundi, Boggy, Nine Mile and Mungeribar.
