Our turnaround time is usually 1 to 2 weeks, however it goes up to 3 to 4 weeks during our busy seasons (spring and summer).
Sometimes, rush jobs can be accommodated - please call us to find out if a faster turnaround time is available! Rush jobs are subject to additional fees, which are based on how fast we are turning around your garment(s). Typically same day or next day turnaround times are very very limited in availability, and the charge for these, if we are able to find them in our schedule, is double. Try your best to plan ahead friends!

***We do not provide professional pressing or steaming services either. We press and/or steam your garment as part of our alteration process but it is for working purposes and a tidy finished product. Some exceptions can be made for garments of specific materials, at our discretion and at a fee TBD at your fitting.***
Unfortunately we can’t repair shoes or bags - they are too bulky to fit under our sewing machines, that are designed only for fabric! We recommend our friends over at Sole Survivor - they specialize in all your shoe and bag needs! You can check them out here:
