Clothing alterations image


Do you have clothing you want to change, adapt, or wear differently?
If your pants are past your ankles we can take up the hem.
Are you getting fit and want your clothing to do the same? We can tailor it to match your new figure.

Repairs image


Is there a hole in your jersey where it shouldn’t be? We can mend it to disappear or we can even do a sympathetic mend, where it is seen but becomes integrated into the garment.
Have the buttons on your shirt done a runner? Then we can sew a set of new buttons on.


That dress you love, but feels outdated. The skirt that needs some glamour. We can create ways to take away or add elements that bring your garment into a new fresh style.


Just moved into a new home? Or decide to have a change in rooms in the house? We can shorten the hem of those curtains to finish them off.

Cushions image


We can make cushions to fit your décor, or give that room a new look.
You can also see our own stylish range of cushions.
