    Linda was friendly and very skilled. She completed all the work while I waited which was very convenient. She was also very responsive to my requests as she completed the alterations. I was very pleased and will return.

    Linda was wonderful! She hemmed a multi-layered gown that was entirely too long for my frame. I received a very quick response with a reasonable quote and we meet within 24 hours. Linda was able to hem the dress while I awaited the finished product. I absolutely recommend her sewing skill and warm customer service! Thank you!

    Working with Linda was a joy. I had not sewed in a very long time and she took her time to explain how to use my sewing machine, layout and cut fabric and taught me some basic sewing skills. Linda has a vast knowledge of sewing and crafts. I am so glad that I took lessons from her because it has enhanced my love of sewing. I would highly recommend Linda especially if you are a beginner or someone who wants to learn some new skills.

    Linda is an awesome teacher. It's all because of her that I have the confidence to alter and repair my clothing myself. Sewing is a very useful life skill and helps me be less wasteful. I can also make unique things to be proud of!

    Prom dress alteration
    Linda did an excellent job on my daughters prom dress length alteration. She provided us a private fitting area so the length could be fitted according to my daughters preference. The alteration was done professionally and on time, as promised. I highly recommend Linda for your alteration needs!

    Easy and Fun Learning with Linda
    The Crafty Class with Linda is the one you want to attend because it’s the one where you come in with nothing and go home with a finished project. The selections are all something you can use immediately or gift to a friend. I had an upcoming event where I wore my necklace and received many compliments. A sample of what you will make that day is provided. You get the tools and hands-on-help to complete your project. I have enough unfinished projects and surely didn’t need anymore. It’s great to gain a craft skill and to go home with a finished project. We have fun and celebrate at the end of each class. I highly recommend the Crafty class.

    Arm Covers defeat Beagles, thanks to Linda.
    After my Beagles ate the arms off a leather chair, Linda made me arm covers that were so perfect you couldn't tell anything had happened! I was about to throw the chair out, now it is "back in business" Great job!!

    I went on Thumbtack to find someone experienced in skirt alterations (waistband) and found Linda. She answered my request very quickly and was the lowest of the three quotes I received. I was pleased to hire Linda and went to her home for the alteration. She altered it right there during our appointment. I left an hour later with the skirt completely finished. Linda was very thorough, friendly, professional and really knew her work and I highly recommend her for alterations.
