 Equipment and Sewing Commitment

Chris uses an industrial strength sewing machine and other high-quality equipment. When necessary, she works by hand. She always uses the best thread appropriate for each project. Her specialty is basic work, such as adjusting lengths on pants. She also will do many other alterations and hemming work, and occasionally will take on a major project such as alterations on those special wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and uniforms.

Basic prices will be readily available. However, estimates given over the phone or by way of an email response are always subject to revision once Chris has met with you and has actually seen what work you are requesting. Major projects, when taken on, may require a minimum of 50 percent of the estimate down — up front.

WHAT'S YOUR VISION? If you have any sewing needs that include creative ideas, please contact Chris to discuss your vision. Plan ahead. While Chris is willing to take on a variety of projects, the speed at which she can complete a project depends on how many projects are on her sewing plate.
