I learned how to sew in 8th grade. Many hours were spent making really artsy clothing creations. College theatre practicum credits were earned in the costume shop and I have had sewing businesses called SeriWear, Serious Business and now Sew Smiley. I love Smiley faces and am a happy human in general.
WHERE I WORK
Let me help you with your sewing needs in the Minneapolis/St Paul Metro area. My sewing work runs the gamut from original creations, costumes, hand crafted bags, home decor and of course, alterations. I am always happy to discuss your projects. I live in South Minneapolis and am happy to arrange variations on easy drop off and pickup. My turn around time is usually 2 weeks.
Sew Smiley services are $20/hour. For more information-please email me
I am adept at many types of alterations. Fix a hem, make a hem, fix a rip or a tear. I can take things in when you have lost a few pounds, or adjust something to just fit you better. I can create stuff from scratch or just shorten those curtains you currently have fixed with tape. Just send me an email and we will communicate. I am happy to offer a quote and help you with your sewing needs.
After many years in business, I choose to not do velvet, leather or men's tailoring. While I can make clothing from scratch, I prefer to alter stuff. I do however enjoy making costumes from scratch. I also let the bridal professionals do their thing. If I am unable to help you, I will do my best to help you find an alternative artist to do your job.
