"She might be a good seamstress, and good if it is something done on the same day. But I went with a friend of to pick up a dress that she" left 3 days earlier and it was a terrible experience. The lady has a bad memory and a bad attitude. She had given us the wrong dress. When we insisted that the dress we dropped off was not the dress that she had given us, she was extremely upset and mean. Would not listen. Luckily we had a note on the inside of the garment bag on my friends writing that stated the name of my friend and a picture of the dress in our cell phones. But she still insisted that we were wrong. It took 20 minutes for her to finally calm down and then she said ok I might have made a mistake. We are not sure if she said that to get rid of us or if she came to her senses. But we did not want to leave with her thinking that we were stealing the dress. BOTTOM LINE, GET A RECEIPT. YOUR ITEM. TAKE PICTURES OF GARMENT AND REPAIR NEEDED. This is a very short version of all that happen. But the zipper was replaced and it worked. I never got to examine the quality of work because we were almost late to the wedding we were attending that day due to the lady ranting.

"I looked for weeks for someone to embroider my silk thread on to some rather thick velvet fabric. Most of the embroidery businesses I called or visited were reluctant" to do it because they were afraid they would ruin the expensive fabric. Those that did agree to do it didn't seem to have very high quality fabrics/products in the store so I didn't feel comfortable. is a high end store that does quality customization on most any product. They have hundreds (thousands?) of fonts from which to choose and the ladies are very helpful with suggestions so your item turns out beautiful. They also carry a few unique gifts that you won't be able to resist buying and personalizing. Bonus: They carry SCOUT bags - my favorite! If you're looking for high end custom embroidery, you found it.

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.

It went great! they are very pleasant, and the work was exceptional. It was exactly the way I wanted it, and you could not tell it has ever been altered. I would highly recommend them to my family, and friends.

This place does great work. We actually used Angie's List to find a local place, and initially tried a different place in St . That place did horrible work. We brought several pairs of pants here, and they redid the work and fixed it. This week, we brought them three more pairs of pants. They hemmed, as well as shortened ...More a pair of pants while keeping the original stitching. Their work is great. Wish we had come here first!

it went wonderfully well!!
is so personable and such a delight to visit with while you're changing in and out of clothes to be altered..
i even had a "rush job" that i threw at her, last minute... and, she accommodated it graciously.
when i picked up my clothes... they were altered to perfection!!
...More /> i have since used for: repairing clothes, altering clothes, and draperies.
i'm blessed to have her expertise at my disposal!!

1- I was told the service would take 3 days, and I could pick my order up on "Saturday at 11 a.m.". I received a call on Saturday at 10:14 a.m., asking for the length of the hem, because they had forgotten and didn't write it down.
2- I called them back to confirm the length and they seemed to have lost my order. The staff member ...More on the phone wrote down my length and said she was sure they'd find it, and they'd call me when the order was complete.
3- They never called to confirm the order was complete.
4- 13 days after the original drop-off, I called to check on the status of my order, and the staff member on the phone yelled (IN MY EAR), for someone else to pick up the phone.
5- ^^^ This staff member stated "I'm sure it's done", and refused to actually check on the order, to prevent me from potentially driving to the store and wasting time if it was not completed.
6- The hems are uneven by approximately 3/4" on every pair of pants.

It was wonderful. The owner was very nice. I have used them before and this time when I went in and did not have cash. Since I was picking something else up, they told me I could pay when I came back. She was so very customer oriented. Like I said, I have used them before and will continue to use them in the future.

is the best seamstress in the world. Courteous and friendly, her work is impeccable, and her prices are reasonable for the level of perfection she produces. I recommend her to everyone, whether they are in north or south .

Dmitriy repaired the damaged lining of a heavy coat which we had previously tried, unsuccessfully, to repair three times by two other tailors. Dmitriy's work has been entirely satisfactory - the lining has held up with the same amount of wear that caused the previous repair attempts to fail, and the seams appear to be still completely solid. ...More His work is entirely professional, both in function and appearance. In addition to the coat, Dmitriy hemmed up a pair of dress slacks, again with entirely satisfactory results. We're very pleased.
