This page will hopefully answer some
of the questions that you may have...!!



F.A.Q.

PRICES:

Q - How much do you charge?
A - Rather than give a 'fixed quote' I charge an 'hourly rate' which is the fairest way for all concerned.

Q - What Kind of payment do you accept?
A - Cash is always preferable, however, I will accept Cheques or Bank Transfers upon request. At the moment I am not in a position to accept credit card transactions.

Q - Do you charge a consultation/fitting fee?
A - No.

Q - Bridal alterations seem so costly. Is this realistic?
A - Yes, this is because the work that goes into a wedding dress can be extensively more labor intensive which means that it can take more & hence cost more. Although it does rather depend upon the style/structure/type of wedding dress.



APPOINTMENTS:
                                                       
Contact Details.....

Q - What are your hours of business?
A - Monday to Saturday, 10-5pm. Last appointment is half an hour before closing.

Q - Can I stop by without scheduling an appointment?
A - I run "Stitched-Up" from home so ALL VISITS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! Please call me in advance to make these arrangements.

Q - Do you do home visits?
A - No.

Q - Do you do evening/weekend appointments?
A - I prefer NOT to do evening/Sunday appointments (I have to have a cut-off point somewhere), however, under very special circumstances I may be able to accommodate you.

Q - How much time do you need before I can see you?
A - This really does depend upon my workload & both of our schedules. Please Note: For members of a wedding party, I require a minimum of at least 4-6 weeks notice before the ceremony is due to take place, thus giving me ample time to complete the work.


FITTINGS:
F.A.Q.

Q - How much time should I plan for a 'Fitting'?
A - Basic alterations, such as hemming, usually only take 10-15 mins per garment.Therefore  the more garments you have, the longer it will take.
Brides please allow up to an hour for your initial 'fitting', especially if you are having complex/multiple alterations on your wedding dress. Any further follow-up fittings can last approx 30 mins.

Q - What do I need to bring for my bridal/formal wear fitting?
A - The garment(s) requiring alterations + shoes that will be worn with the garment (or ones with the correct height) + foundation wear - hoops, slips, bras, long-line shapers, etc.

Q - How many 'fittings' will I need?
A - Normally it is a minimum of 2 = your initial fitting + a final fit. However, if further adjustments are required then additional fittings will be necessary.


MISC.:

Q - Do you do beading/embellishments?
A - Yes.
F.A.Q.

Q - What is the time frame for your service?
A - This depends upon my workload & sewing schedule. Simple alterations & mending I can normally complete within a fortnight. Bridal & formal wear typically needs approx 6 weeks or longer. Always allow ample time to avoid the stress of any unforeseen delays (i.e. ordering & receiving of specialist materials).

Q - Do you work with leather/suede?
A - No, it would be better to find a specialist on these materials.

Q - Do you offer an emergency/rush service?
A - Yes, if you are in dire need & my sewing time allows. However, if you require this service within 2 days then an additional surcharge of 20% of your final fee WILL be added.
