About Me

I love to fix things so that they can be enjoyed again, whether it's going to be worn or used around the home. 


In my spare time, I love ALL things crafty, whether it's with paper,  fabric or mosaics.


Repair or Replace

Our first discussion and quote is to hear your specific need and offer possible solutions.  I will suggest whether to repair or replace. No two jobs are the same,  every customer and item is unique and my aim is to alter things specific to individual needs.   

What We Do

Pickup & Deliver

If you can't come to me, I will come to you.


Shortening of all hems inc. curtains. A fitting is not always required


Holes, rips and broken zips. We do it all. Leather, suede, costumes, sports gear and even soft toys.

Uniforms & Corporate

We do badges attached to clothing and custom fitting of work/school uniforms.


If your item is not fabric, but knitted or crocheted we can repair that as well.

Formal Wear

Bridesmaids, ballgowns, minor suit alterations - all of that can be taken care of.

Upsize & Downsize

We can almost always make something fit that doesn't look great on you.

Customised Bedding

Caravan, camping or specialised bedding. We can cut sheets and quilts to size to suit your needs.

Urgent jobs

Did you leave it to the last minute? Contact us and we will do our best to fit you in.


What We Don't Do

Delicate Bridal

We don't specialise in bridal gowns but can recommend some very good dressmakers.

Make Clothing

Alterations is our specialty. I leave the dressmaking to those who love it.

Heavy Duty

Canvas, tents, canopies, blinds. We leave those to the experts.

Thank you very much Ruth for my daughter's blankets, she loves them very much! Fast, affordable and friendly service; highly recommended.

Thank you Ruth.

"Perfect Workmanship"

I had two sets of massive curtains that needed cutting down, so Ruth came to my house due to the size of the curtains. The workmanship was perfect, service amazing and the price so reasonable.
