Professional alteration and repair of better knit clothing.


Most items with minor damage are being returned within 2-3 months. Items with several holes and/or alterations are being scheduled into mid-winter 2023.

Sandy's Tip ~
When sending items for repair it is always best to look for further damage and place a safety pin or tape next to each damaged area. A great way to quickly see holes in a sweater is to open the sweater upside down at the hem and hold it up to a bright light or window while scanning the inside. Then run your arm inside each sleeve to check for holes at the cuff and along the seams as well as the rest of the sleeves. Most holes are found on the front and cuffs of knits! We will go over the item again when it is received and let you know if more holes are found. 

Quality of service 
is our guiding principle.

If you have a wool or cashmere sweater in need of repair, you have come to the right place. We work exclusively on knit clothing made from natural fibers. 

For over 30 years we have provided quality repair and alteration of knit clothing to stores and retail customers. Our skills and experience with machine made knits are unique in today's garment repair and reweaving services. 

Fine wool, cashmere and other natural fiber sweaters can be repaired and altered with great success!  This includes brand names like Loro Piana, Dale of Norway, Hermes, White and Warren and many more.

Repairs are generally made by expert reknitting with yarn from the garment, which produces excellent results. Check out our Sweater Repair page for more on how repairs are made and cost information.
