Finding Khay to give sewing lessons to my 7 year old granddaughter has been such a wonderful experience. We are very pleased with everything she is learning. She has completed several projects for herself and is now sewing doll clothes for her baby doll. Khay is very knowledgeable in her craft and an excellent teacher.

Very quick turnaround time! My daughter needed some alterations to her homecoming dress the week of the event.....Quality work provided by a quality individual (Augusta). He took the time to meet with us and understand our alteration needs. The alteration resulted in my daughter having a dress that fit her beautifully and comfortably.

Delvin McCray is a fine young gentleman that does wonderful work! I needed a doublet for my son for the Renaissance era (the costume request was specific as to what he had to wear). We needed it in 5 days starting the day of hire (hired Monday pick up Friday). Delvin said he could do it and he did! I hired him on a Monday, and when I came in for a fitting on Wednesday, my son told me he needed a specific hat as well. Mr. McCray said he could do it no problem (and he was busy!) I picked up both the doublet and hat (the hat he made within two days) in that very same week on Friday. I feel very badly that I had to come in late for the fitting and for the pick-up due to working very late; Delvin was very nice, professional, and he waited for us. You can tell it was made by a professional (my son has the best looking costume!!!) Delvin doesn't cut corners and does high quality creative work. I couldn't be more pleased with his work, he also saved us from embarrassment if I didn't have it ready on time (we did try to do this ourselves, but started too late - we had issues going on and my sewing capabilities weren’t in line with what we needed). I highly recommend to everyone! He showed me other pieces that he made, all very beautiful. You should check him out!!! Next time I am in need, I will definitely be back!!!

Mary was wonderful! I highly recommend that anyone interested in sewing at any level. We had a consultation phone call where she asked more about my goals, my current skill level, etc. and we set up our first lesson, which went over the basics of the machine. Then I had 3 more lessons built around making a dress pattern I had bought. She was super flexible. For example, she will help you make pretty much anything. I made a dress, but I know she teaches men and at least one person who makes stuffed animals. She had no problems modifying the pattern by adding zippers if I wanted to learn that. And because I only had the one week to take lessons during my vacation, she also was able to figure out how to use the lessons so that I could do the other half on my own time. This reduced the number of lessons, helped me learn on my own, and I had a finished dress at the end of 4 two-hour lessons! The other thing I will say is Mary gets straight down to business. She definitely chats with you, but one thing that I always noticed in other people's lessons is they will stop whatever they are doing if a topic comes up in small chat. That wastes time and the lessons are short. Mary gets that and any time you are not actively sewing is spent explaining the next step. She'll chat while you're putting in pins, sewing something, etc. Lastly, it's awesome that she comes to you. I wanted to learn on my machine and she doesn't mind the trip, which I'm sure is at least 45 mins for her. It just made the whole thing a no brainer for me and I will be calling again the next time I need help with a project!

I'am consider a person who thinks very creatively, so anything that I wanted that may have seem "different" or "unique" to the point of view where I felt that no one else would be able to satisfy me the way Quan can! In short, she meets every aspects that I requests for all of my dresses. For example, I originally drew out a rough sketch that I wanted for my prom dress and then showed it to her. Not only does she keeps my idea in mind, but she also added a little creativity of her own (which I really appreciated)! And so, we both worked accordingly with one and other, which resulted of a very beautiful and very much of an unique dress where I was completely ecstatic to wear on the big day! Quan also designed my dress for my sophomore high school homecoming where she scored yet another five full stars from me! And as an freshman in college, Quan continues to remain my favorite fashion design whom I can always depend on to meet my standards!

    Working with Kelly was great! She transformed my wedding dress into exactly what I wanted after I couldn't find the perfect dress! She showed her creative side & I have a one-of-a-kind dress for my day! My dress started out as a strapless with a corset back-Kelly built the back and straps as well as putting in a zipper and the fabulous buttons!

      Suzanne was amazing to work with for my wedding dress alterations. I was able to complete them in the comfort of my home with a true professional. She was honest and the value was phenomenal. She was timely and open to all communication and answered even my silliest of questions. As a bride close to my wedding day, anxious is a primary feeling, but when it came to my dress, I never felt that at all with Suzanne. Would highly recommend.

        I had 6 curtain panels that needed to be hemmed. Joan came to the house and took the time to pin each one to ensure a good fit. I had my drapes back quickly and they look fantastic! Joan is great to work with.
