Bower Hinton Sewing (Make Do and Mend-It)

Working from home I offer a service of sewing alterations, repairs, and new clothes made up from your own pattern and material. Curtains shortened or width reducing. I do not make curtains.

I am a seamstress with many years of experience in dressmaking and curtain alterations. (Check the who am I? page)

I take pride in my work and offer a friendly, quick, reasonably priced, and professional service.

I live in Bower Hinton near Martock and look forward to welcoming you to the sewing room.

If you do not drive and live locally I am happy to collect and deliver your alterations. If you live away and would like to use the service please post or courier your alterations with exact requirements.

You can contact me by telephone/text or email.
