"August 28, 2015: I brought a small rug to be cleaned two weeks ago, August 11, 2015. They did not call me to let me know that my rug was ready. I dropped in yesterday," August 28, 2011 to check the progress of my rug. I gave them my ticket and they tried to give me someone else's dirty rug. (Dirt fell off of the rug onto the counter). I told them that that was not my rug. They looked for my rug for at least 20 minutes and could not find it. I asked them for my money back and the value of the rug. They also cleaned a
jacket. I had paid for the jacket and the rug. They gave me my money back for the cleaning price of the rug. I told them that I wanted $30 for the value of the rug. They refused. They also refused to give my receipt back so I had nothing to prove that I had been there at all. I left but I told them that I would be back. August 29, 2015: I went back to the cleaners with my husband. They were a little more receptive. I had a picture of the rug because I have another one just like it at home. The woman at the desk said that she still did not know where my rug was. She said that I could fill out a claim. The manager came and found my rug. It was not clean so I left with it without further payment.

"I went to the shop today to have my daughter's homecoming dress altered for next Saturday. We were met at the front door by a woman who was not happy to see" us holding a formal dress. She said there was "no way" they could work on the dress and "didn't we see all the dresses hanging up that needed alterations" as if she should have known better than to ask. Clothes are in piles all over the floor in the cramped shop. When I asked if
was there she pointed to the next room where he was sitting. He never even came out to
us. Apparently if you have a couple of weeks to wait on your alterations, this is the place for you. Luckily we found someone else who told us there would be no problem with our deadline but they are going to press it for us too!

Alterations/Sewing/Decorating, Dry Cleaning

One of the common complaints we see on Angie’s List in the alterations category is that clothes are not altered in time. Don’t wait until a week before school starts to get those clothes fitted properly because they might have a back to school rush. Keep in mind shops may also be busy this time of year with wedding alterations.

Angie's Answers

You would have to have a shoe repair shop evaluate them - some heels are hollow except at the tip so you might not be able to shorten them and retain the necessary strength - others are solid, so he would have to look at them. Might be able to just remove heel cap, cut down, and put heel cap back on.

 

Bear in mind that cutting the heels down will rock the shoe "backwards", so you will be walking on sole further back on the shoe - if the unthickened sole part betweenthe heel and the ball of the foot would be walked on because of this, you might have to pay him to add leather there to, which might mean resoling the entire shoe - could get pricey, if these are not worth hundreds of $.

 

As for evaluating a shoe repai place - only thing I can think is if these are pricey shoes, call store and see if they recommend a particular place. Otherwise Search Angies List for sheo repair places and reviews.

She was very efficient. Had me try on dress and pinned it. She worked with my short time line to make sure the dress would be ready in plenty of time. Got the dress back on time and it fit perfectly.

is an excellent seamstress. She is very busy, however she had my articles of clothing done within two days! She hemmed 3 blouses and a pain of

I first found
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
on a well known website in which she described her alteration, sewing, custom work and interior design. We talked by phone first and I found her very agreeable and a type of personality I thought I could work with--boy was I right on!
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
came initially to solve the issues surrounding fitting affordable online canvas drapes in front of plantation shutters due to the beating sun in our ruthless desert conditions. Within short order she knew what she needed to do, explained it to me and then removed the drapes to take to her home to adjust and sew accordingly. She returned and climbed the ladder and re-installed the drapes which now hang wonderfully well! To think I almost gave up hope on them.
While here the first time I realized she could also help me with another problem--getting several pairs of women's slacks hemmed. I needed some for an upcoming trip and she had them (9 pairs) ready within a week. They were perfect!
Since I've seen what's possible with one challenging patio door's covering, I asked her to find the right material to complete the window treatment of another patio door, challenging in yet another way. To that end she has a good idea of what she needs to do, has bought the fabric and is sewing between my demands (and others) of her time with other pressing projects.
On a subsequent visit I asked her to help solve another problem. I have a lovely vintage quilt that we use on our CalKing bed but it leaves us fighting over every inch due to the historically smaller sizes of quilts generally. I asked her to use her imagination to create something along the lines of an extension all the way around 3 sides that would be similarly 'quilted' by machine lightly and sewn into the last seam of the existing quilt. She had just the idea of how to handle this 'flounce' for lack of a better word that will now give us greater utility of this heirloom piece without fighting so much.
Since I saw how well
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
could handle this (working with vintage textiles) and creates such products on her own, I felt she could easily manage finishing the quilting process of 2 children's quilts. That is, I purchased 2 quilt tops online (auction) that were begging for completion. I wasn't sure anyone locally could tackle something like this. Mostly I think of quilters back east, south, midwest or plains.
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
's got it all figured out and is completing them as I write. Another problem solved!
Without a doubt, the biggest and most challenging project I've asked her to help with is Organizing my Home! We are doing this working together but I don't know who I could have turned to with prior knowledge of whether I would easily get along with a stranger in my closet, for example like
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
! I gave her the basic parameters of not letting me off the hook. Since I've lost weight and don't want a 'safety' supply of clothes to fall back to I needed someone's help with action-oriented questions. She's a real pro this way too! So far, I've filled 2 large tubs for consignment stores (items still with tags that I couldn't find in that overstuffed
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
of a closet), and 6 lawn/trash black bags stuffed full for
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
store donation. She would ask, sort, fold, and those that remained 'survivors' of the process, she would carefully re-hang and position them by an organizational approach that she felt would work for me. Wow oh WOW. I felt like a million dollars watching those pieces of once-loved clothing march out my door for another
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
at life. I was never able to do this by myself, was too embarrassed to ask friends, and loving spouse was no help at all.
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
, however, was not stymied, in fact, she said she loves helping with Home Organization challenges.
So, with one thing leading to another, after we tackle belts, scarves, purses and shoes, we will turn to the always overstuffed Linen Closet, Coat Closet, and the formidable Kitchen Cabinets! I'm so glad I found
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
and that she's so easy to work with, trustworthy, and efficient! I highly recommend
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
to you without reservation!

it went very smoothly. The clothes were beautifully done. They looked brand new. I have had the coat for many years and have found that it is not easy to clean but they did a great job.

My Mom needed an outfit for my daughter's wedding. She had a beautiful three piece gold suit in her closet that hadn't been worn. The jacket fit perfectly but the top and skirt were now too big.
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
took in the sides of the skirt, took in the front of the top, raised the shoulders, and added straps to hold the bra strap in place. She did a great job. The suit fit my Mom perfectly after the alterations. The day of the wedding my Mom looked stunning in her gold suit.
I also want to comment on the shop being closed. I contacted
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
the day before she was heading out on vacation. She gave me the first appointment for the Saturday she returned. That was perfect. Went in on
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
11th and my Mom's suit was ready on

The service was quick. The quality and price were just outstanding!!! After this very positive experience, I brought my dress in to be shortened. Again,
Elkins Park Tailors Provider Name Locked
provided a superb quality service (all done only by hand since the dress needed to stretch). I paid
only $21.00 for this excellent work.

I took a pair of pants in with a short rip in a seam. She fixed it right away and observed a problem with a pocket that she also fixed. It was a small job for which I was charged little, yet she did it immediately. Great service.
