Marychris was fantastic to work with. She got the project done earlier than expected and the quality of her work is great. The experience was hassle free and will definitely contact her for future jobs.

What a wonderful seamstress and person! I have had several garments altered by Mary, her work is top notch and she comes to you for sizing and drop off, so easy! Very happy to have found her :)

I am very pleased with Marychris thus far as she promptly emailed me back within a few short minutes after initially contacting her via Thumbtack. She immediately provided me with her personal contact information in order to communicate over the phone and set up an in person appointment for fitting. She came over to my house the very next day, as I was in desperate need to have a talented and skilled seamstress alter my professional business garments to fit properly for my occupation. I am very much looking forward to seeing the outcome of her work and getting my work attire back as soon as possible! I requested that I get the extra scraps back for myself as I’m an artist and normally do my own alterations. However, currently I am in the middle of a move and didn’t have access to my own sewing machine. With that said, I am very grateful to have found her through word of mouth. As I typically do my own alterations or use the free alterations that Nordstrom offers for their clothing. These are just different times we are living in and I am grateful for finding Marychris and cannot wait to see the work she is capable of!

I am grateful for the swift, professional work Marychris did for me. She was very responsice to any out reach I made. I am very happy to have my curtains at floor length! She split a panel to make what was factory 3 panels into 2 larger panels. Now the drape has the recommended fullness, but it is also proportionate on either side of the middle rod support. She even made me drape tie backs out of the extra material. Thank you so much Marychris!
