Do you have clothing or other textiles that need some love and attention?
I offer mending services to patch, darn and/or embroider your clothes and textiles.
If you are local to Albuquerque, bring your items to my booth at any of the markets listed below (2023 dates coming shortly) and we can discuss options. Please note I am only at these markets on the dates listed, so please check before coming!
We can also arrange a time to meet outside of market dates if you prefer, just e-mail me at email@example.com to set something up.
If you'd like to get the process jump started, please feel free to e-mail me and include some photos ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are outside of the area (but still within the United States), please e-mail me at email@example.com with some photos of what you need repaired.
GENERAL INFO FOR DROP-OFF AND MAIL-IN MENDING
Feel free to look through photos below or at my Instagram feed for inspiration, and I will let you know if it can be applied to your repair. Or if you have no idea at all, that's fine too! I will give suggestions for which mending technique I think is best.
I am happy to discuss options and give quotes free of charge and with no obligation, so please don't hesitate to reach out.
If you choose to go ahead with the mends I offer, payment will be due ahead of time, and turn around time will be 1-2 weeks.
Please make sure items are clean before handing them off.
TERMS OF SERVICE
Please make sure you fully understand the agreed upon repairs for your garment/textiles; once mending has begun there will be no refunds. If you are unsatisfied with how your mend turns out, we can work together to come up with an appropriate fix.
Please understand that because of the nature of fabric and textiles, once they begin to deteriorate, more worn areas will soon follow. While I cannot be held responsible for the further natural wear and tear of your garments, I am happy to offer my mending services as many times as you would like to continue.
In the unlikely case that I cause damage to your garment/textile, I hold my self responsible to properly fix the issue, at no further cost to you.
Best for fixing holes in woven fabrics; applied from top or back; with or without sashiko-style stitching
"Needle weaving" thread to reinforce worn fabric or fill over a small hole; usually by hand but reinforcement can be done by machine in heavier woven fabrics
Add embroidery to your clothes or textiles (my designs included, or another shape of your choosing), great for covering small holes and stains or "just because"
