GARMENT CONSTRUCTION  Excellent finishing techniques and skills are essential to a  professional looking garment/accessory/toy.  We take the time and the care to ensure all projects are finished in the best possible way per garment, accessory or toy.  Knitting and crochet finishing projects welcome.

  • Cost: Starting at $60.00 per garment (ask for a quote)
  • Cost includes blocking
  • All quotes will given and agreed prior to commencement of work.
  • A deposit may be collected prior.
  • Turn-around-time: average 1-2 weeks (subject to change, rush orders may cost a bit more)

BLOCKING  Blocking is a key finishing a knit/crochet lace, garments & accessories and not everyone has blocking tools or the space.  Blocking softens the knitted/crochet fabric, cleans and conditions; sets the seams in a garment or accessory; transforms knitted lace to something spectacular!

  • Cost: starting at $20.00 per project
  • Lace shawls range from $30.00 – $40.00
  • Cost based on quote given prior to commencement of project
  • bulk blocking may qualify for a cheaper rate (per project)
  • Turn-around-time: 1 week (subject to change, rush orders may cost a bit more)

FINISHING  We all suffer from Startitis: starting a project and starting another without completing the last….  Sometimes these nagging projects get in our way mentally and physically (bags and bags of projects jammed in the closet sound familiar?).  Or, you might be on a tight deadline and just don’t have enough time finish a project.  We can help, we can finish your projects big or small!

  • Cost: starting at $200.00 (this price based on a garment that is about 1/2 way complete)
  • Price includes any seaming, weaving in ends and blocking
    All quotes will given and agreed prior to commencement of work.
  • A deposit may be collected prior.
  • Turn-around-time: average 2-3 weeks (subject to change, rush orders may cost a bit more)

COMMISSION  Do you love knitwear,  appreciate hand-made one-of-a-kind crafts?  Then, we would love to make you something extraordinary!  Knitting for commission is not cheap.  It is shockingly more expensive then to purchase from a store, but there is something special about hand-made knitwear you just can’t buy off the rack.  All my patterns I design I can make.  If you have a specific idea in your head, let’s talk.  

  • Cost: based on project, yarn choice and size (average $0.35 per yard)
  • I can usually work with budgets
  • Quotes given before work or yarn is ordered
  • Free consultations
  • 1/2 deposit is required before work is started, full payment upon delivery of finished garment/accessory/toy
  • Turn-around-time: 3-5 weeks depending on project (rush projects may cost a bit more)

MENDING Do you have a hole in your favorite sweater or blanket? Do you need a patch on your elbows? We offer seamless (or almost seamless mending services).  Professional techniques to reinforce and to seal up holes.

  • Cost: Minimum $10.00 per garment
  • Multiple holes per garment: about $15.00 – $30.00
  • Bulk hole costing may apply
  • Turn-around-time: 1-3 days
