Mending

I mend clothing and other textiles, paying special attention to comfort, drape, and fit.  Please contact me for a mending estimate at HeidiParkesArt@gmail.com, subject heading, "Mending Estimate."

*See pricing and order details below

Pricing Scale:

  • Simple mends like a split seam start at $20.
  • Average mends like a thinning knee, crotch, or elbow start at $40
  • Complex mends can require many hours or even days of work, and can cost $100-$400+  (These mends will be fully functional, but may be desired as art to be framed for display.  Heirloom items like scarves, children’s clothes, and family table linens and quilts may be of particular interest.)
  • All mending requests are considered.  Nothing is too far-gone!  Any garment type or fabric, other textiles such as a handbag, quilt, or cushion are also possible.
  • *All shipping expenses are the responsibility of the customer, please include paid return shipping with the garment.
  • *Payment is accepted with a 'square invoice' and credit card, or can be sent as a check with the garment itself.
