I would go to Lisa for absolutely anything, no job is too big or to small, nothing is a problem, a fantastic lady with a heart as big as her smile that does an amazing job and listens to exactly what you want. You are fantastic Lisa thank you for making the 2 weeks up to my wedding such smooth sailing’

Lisa is incredible; her confidence is what won me over. Not only did she do an amazing job of altering my wedding dress, five bridesmaids’ dresses, three flower Girl dresses, robes, and the mother of the brides dress. Nothing was put in the too hard basket – even things I thought weren’t even possible! I am amazed by Lisa’s talents. She also goes above and beyond – bring available at whatever times and even offering to take my dress to the dry cleaners! I’m so pleased to have found Lisa.’

Lisa is my number one go-to person for all my sewing crises. Whether I need shorts or jeans shortened, pattern making for one off designs, whatever, Lisa can sort. Five stars!’

Upon recommendation from fabric alteration businesses in Hamilton, I took my sons BMX bike elbow pads to Lisa and the outcome was amazing, not only did she alter them perfectly, but she also altered it so they can be made bigger when my son has his next growth spurt, something other places said they couldn’t do. Done in super quick time. Thanks so much Lisa you’re a legend, all my alterations will be coming your way from now on.’
