W E   H A V E   R E T I R E D !

Thank you so much 

for your business over the years!

We are no longer full service.

However, YOU can learn to do your own alterations

or start your own business with our video tutorials!


We are retired - and below is what it was all about over the years!

We're all clothes horses stampeding around in styles and color schemes that we hope reflect our unique essence.

But everybody falls apart at the seams sooner or later, and then a skilled alterations specialist needs to be found.

That's me, with over 30 years of experience both locally and globally and 10 years in Stillwater, MN. 

I know clothing and how to fit it perfectly so that you can confidently look forward to pick-up day when you stand before the mirror and beam at yourself with grand approval.

"There isn't anything I would not do for my Grandgirls, and I need your help Phyllis!"  is what I said 3 days before the Harvest Fest costume parade downtown Stillwater.  I had forgotten about it....and Dorothy had to be dressed for Oz! 


I found this cute vintage quilted skirt with this outrageous vegetables print.  But it was too long.  It seemed a shame to throw away the massive amount of approximately half the skirt...


about the book:

"How to Run a Successful Sewing & Alterations Business from Home"

I found the courage to start my own alterations business out of my home when I read Phyllis's book.  I decided on the paperback version instead of Kindle.  With the book and the accompanying free YouTube video series, I made it happen in 3 months!


about the book:

"How to Run a Successful Sewing & Alterations Business from Home"

My husband and I read the book on Kindle, then got the paperback.  It's already dog-eared from use because when we read and re-read it, we knew my husband would be best at doing all the business setup, maintenance and marketing,
