** CLOSED Tuesday MAY 22nd **

Tuesdays! 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM – Drop off/Pickup

  • Regular Alterations
    • 1-week turnaround – Unless discussed when dropping off.
    • If you need something rushed let me know, and we can work it out with a small RUSH fee!
  • Formal Alterations
    • 2-3 week turnaround – will need to be able to come back for fittings if needed

Once an alteration leaves the studio, the service has been completed. There are no refunds on alterations, when picking up we go over all alterations, garments must be tried on before leaving the studio. If you choose not to try the garments on before leaving the studio, you do at your own risk; if a change is needed, it will be billed for again once it has left the shop.  Please understand that alterations take time and supplies, I want you to be happy with my services.

Any issues or concerns will be discussed at that time and we will figure out the best plan of action.

Open Sew –

Come to the studio to rent my sewing machine for $5/hr or if you have questions or need assistance it’s $10/hr.

If you need to use the serger or coverstitch machines you will need to know how to use them before coming or book a private lesson on it first. Those are $10/hr to rent.

You will need to bring your own needles and thread for the machines but you will have access to my ironing board/cutting stations.
