SEWING HISTORY

  • 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

Zippers & Buttons and Hems...OH MY

  • 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.
