A little more about me and my services…

I have been sewing for over 30 years and have a Degree in Fashion and Textiles. With a keen eye for detail, having run my own business since 2012 from my home, where I have a private sewing room. I pride myself on exceptional customer service, listening to customer requirements and offering advice where needed.

Mainly through recommendations, I have built up a large customer base within the local area, also having carried out work for customers based further afield, including clients based in the London area. Nothing is too small… I can turn my needle to many sewing techniques for clothing and soft furnishings. From a wedding dress alternation to a zip replacement, cushion covers to window dressings, and would be happy to arrange an appointment to discuss your sewing requirements.

What our clients says…

Brilliant service and friendly. Had my wedding dress altered from a zip to lace up back due to it becoming too small from lockdown! I contacted Karen 2 weeks prior to my wedding and my dress was ready to collect within a week! She done a brilliant job and wouldn’t have known the dress was any different. Fantastic job!
