Owner & Head Seamstress, has been sewing and altering garments for over 19 years in downtown Bend. She has an eye for detail and ability to see what a garment can become with some simple alterations. You’ll find her deep in an intricate project when you pop by to drop off an order. Keeping her clients dressed in clothing that is tailored to their taste makes her job fulfilling and fun.


Seamstress & Manager, has over a decade of experience working side by side with the owner, and is a huge asset to the team. She focuses on the basics that come through our door. Hems, patches, repairs and more. She also makes the time to work directly with our clients, and keep our retail accounts running smoothly. She makes sure our incoming and outgoing orders stay organized and on time.


Fitting & Hand Stitch Specialist, has been with us for over 3 years working one on one with our clients. They love her friendly smile and the time she spends helping each customer with the perfect fit. When she isn’t juggling incoming orders, Samantha hand stitches fine points and finishings on garments. She has a great eye, and enjoys small details.
