Clothing hemming/repair/alterations

20


20 simbi per hour

I am a home sewer, most familiar with women's wear. I can tackle your pile of mending for a reasonable price, or hem those pants that were perfect everywhere except the length. I'm comfortable doing hand work, such as embroidery and/or beading repair. Does your favorite dress have a broken zipper? Or is the lining crumbling in that beautiful vintage purse you bought? I would love to help restore or fit your favorite items!

Although I've dabbled in Men's Tailoring, I prefer not to work with men's suites that need a lot of tailoring. I can handle seam repair, lining rips, shortening or lengthening the cuffs and bottom hem, replacing buttons, etc.

Training & Qualifications


I started delving into the world of Fiber Arts at a young age, and fell in love with costume creation in my teens. Over the years, I have taken several classes to further my skills, and have worked in several costume shops around the Seattle area.

Availability & Preferences


Very open availability, though I am most certainly a night owl.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I really love the idea of the Barter System! It feels like this tech is actually returning us to a slightly more simple time, where we all know the value of our work, and wish to trade accordingly.

I can't stand weeding. In theory, it should appeal to my slight OCD brain, but I just can't. Help? It's not a terribly large area, just a little fenced in patio, but it needs some love. It is cu...

About Amethyst Beach

Seattle Native, or just about, who loves the rainy days that make me stay inside and work on one of my many sewing projects. I have also recently gotten really into coloring, I find it incredibly calm...ing, as well as creatively inspiring. It sorta gives me a chance to figure out sewing math or fit issues. I do still have a "Day Job", in that I work for a local celebrity chef in one of her 3 restaurants (guess who?!). That takes up 3 nights a week, generally, so the rest of the time I can "play in my sewing room". show more
