Sewing Machine


Repairing, mending and darning well loved clothes and textiles. I can help extend the life of your favorite sweater, grandmother's quilt or those jeans that you just can't buy anymore. My services also include sweater repairs and reknitting.


I can help with most clothing alterations with the exception of wedding dresses and narrowing jacket shoulders or reshaping jacket necklines.


Have a skirt or shirt that you love, but it no longer fits the same? Or an amazing scarf that you just don't wear? I can help come up with creative ideas to rethink these items to make them into something new!



As each project is custom to the individual and the piece, services are priced by the hour, in 15 minute increments.

  • 15 minutes - $15

  • 30 minutes - $30

  • 45 minutes - $45

  • 60 minutes - $60

Items bundled will often take less time than pieces brought in one-by-one.

  • Please contact me if you have questions or would like more information. Contact me here or email me at

  • Please be sure to freshly washed items before alterations or mending. An additional $5 will be charged for each unwashed item. If you're concerned about further damaging your item just try your best  to spot clean any particularly dirty areas. If your items has moth damage please either clean it, store it in your freezer for 72 hours or place in a very low oven (at least 120 degrees F). This will kill any moth larvae or eggs so none are transferred to other people's items.

  • Drop off items at my studio in north east Seattle, WA. Book an appointment here.
