Candice did a lovely job on a slipcover for my armchair. It was a complicated piece due to the unusual shape of the chair but she did some great creative problem solving, and it turned out great! I also really appreciated how she engaged me along the way - she sent me photos as she made progress on the pattern/shape so that we could make sure I liked the solution before she used the fabric. I love my new chair! :)

Arisha was a pleasure to work with. She made an outfit for my daughter who was applying to fashion school and at 15, doesn't sew yet. Arisha finished on time and provided top quality service and is an consummate seamstress. She was quick, worked without a pattern, and priced very reasonably. I would highly recommend hiring her!

A friend needed an unusual custom wedding dress made. Matthew was recommended to me so we got in touch with him. He was very responsive and quickly came up with a good plan for realizing our vision. He helped us select appropriate fabrics, created a pattern, and after multiple fittings, delivered exactly what we'd envisioned. He was a pleasure to work with and his price was less than other dressmakers we'd consulted. Highly recommended!

I had some material that I brought home form Ghana that I loved but couldn't figure out what to with. Laura helped me find a pattern and she made me a beautiful skirt and top for reasonable price. I highly recommend her. She's very skilled and has a good eye.

I started part 1 of a 2 part Knock Off Course. We are learning to make a pattern from an old garment. So far I’ve learned a lot about pattern making! I’m really happy I was able to replicate a dress I love! I now have a pattern. Next week we start sewing. The instructor is very knowledgeable; she engaged us into various learning moments from each students project. I look forward to additional classes.

Peter offered the one on one teaching I need to get past my crochet obstacles. His curriculum and teaching style make learning easy. Peter, being a designer of crochet patterns and his familiarity with teaching, adds to the experience.

Amazing results!!! My daughter drew the dress she wanted for her senior prom. Lisa brought the dress from the sketch book to life. My daughter was so excited!! This was not an easy job. Every detail was a challenge. Lisa is really a master at her craft. She went above and beyond to make this a most memorable experience. Thank you Lisa for being great at what you do. You were a pleasure to work with and we will definitely use your services again!

I was looking for someone to tailor fit a few dress shirts and pants, mostly slimming down and shortening. Lynne was very approachable and easy to work with. I was able to meet with her within a week of posting my project. She was very courteous in measuring each item that I brought in and would check with me on how I liked the new fit. She has been in this industry for a very long time and does everything she can to ensure that the customer is happy. Her prices are very reasonable and had a quick turnaround time. I would highly recommend her for alterations and any of the other services they offer. Thanks Lynne!

Maria is a fantastic pattern maker and sewing teacher! She was able to make a pattern out of my existing garment without taking it apart and walked me through all the steps of re-creating the item. Not only is she very knowledgable, she is also a great teacher and was able to explain things to me so I could retain them and practice on my own. I was completely new to sewing and she patiently answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable with the different stitches. She also taught me how to setup and use my new sewing machine! Maria is a very down to earth and easy going person; it was really fun chatting during our lessons. I will definitely be back for more lessons!
