If you have a very small repair you’re probably better taking it to a local tailor shop to have it done. They do such things quickly and it may be more convenient. We stay booked well in advance and many alteration jobs spring up at the last minute.  Unlike other seamstresses that perform little else other than alterations, we are busy creating custom clothing for our customers and perform alterations as necessary.  I always require an appointment (Make an appointment now!) with my customers and this is done for their convenience. After all, you wouldn’t want to appear and have to wait an hour because I have a customer designing a wedding gown.
