Some of the Home Decor projects for our clients:


'Had a great experience here with Linda. She was able to fit me in for a hem on a bridesmaid dress with a tight time line and had a great return time on it. She was also very pleasant and had good customer service. Would definitely go back for any other alterations and would recommend to anyone.'
-Elizabeth S.
'Linda did a skillful job on three items that needed altering. They now fit perfectly. She is presently creating a sack for my granddaughter's sleeping bag. Linda is extremely professional and talented. She is a pleasure to work with. I'll be returning! '
-Carol G.
