Reweaving of Damaged Clothes
Alterations and Tailoring

We are experienced in fitting and use well-qualified local area tailors and seamstresses. Our turn-around is generally 4-7 days, but we can accommodate emergencies if given 18-24 hours notice. And yes, we do take outside alterations on customer’s clothing.

We work with weavers who repair damaged clothing, due to rips, tears or moth holes. Send us the item for inspection and we will call you with an estimate. At that point it is your decision whether or not you wish for us to proceed with the repair.

We are pleased to discuss special volume discount programs for businesses, wedding parties or local non-profit organizations. Give us a call to discuss how we may help your event.


We take footwear for repair or reconditioning depending upon our customer’s needs. Estimates are always available upon request. All repairs are done by a qualified local cobbler.
