Thanks everyone. I just want to make sure my money isn't being wasted.Yes, I do simple alterations at my local cleaners.
Yes, many cleaners have alterations.
Yes, many of them are capable of ripping a seam and sewing in a straight line.
More complicated alterations go to more trusted tailors...
Based on the fact that my cleaner is Arabic and the sign describing alterations services mentions dresses for "1ra Communion" and Quinceanos, I'm guessing he sends the work out to someone Hispanic...Don't most mom and pop dryclening places have tailoring?
I've lengthened a pair before,it was amazingly easy.I let my alterations lady do everything else.I do open my own pockets,however.Yes. This is one of the simplest things to do. I've even done it myself stitching some odd trousers in the back. Mind you, I don't even have a machine, so it was all hand stitches.
If so, you have a lot of company......someone here thinks I'm asking stupid questions...
I hope that he's since chosen to specialize in shoes. People hardly ever wear VCRs anymore.For some reason this reminded me of a shop that was located not far from me about 20 years ago that specialized in shoe and VCR repair. Obviously a talented man. :icon_smile_big:
My drycleaner does shoe repair,although I still prefer my cobbler downtown.They also own the vacum cleaner repair shop,but I think someone else does the actual work.For some reason this reminded me of a shop that was located not far from me about 20 years ago that specialized in shoe and VCR repair. Obviously a talented man. :icon_smile_big:
