for spending some time with me today! Hopefully, we can work
And you will see that I am really down-to-earth and professional
and a bit of a perfectionist!
My JOURNEY started 35 + years ago at the age of 14, when
I couldn’t find ready-to-wear clothing to buy that FIT
ME OR MY STYLE! And once the neighbors found out that I had
developed into a seamstress of sorts, they inundated me with
all kinds of sewing requests, nothing like on-the-job-training.
No one teaches Alterations! There are Tailoring schools,
but they are few and far between. I have seen a LOT of so-called
Tailors’ workmanship, but it is not as CLEAN inside
as I like!
Since I wanted to perfect my sewing workmanship, I took 3
years of Home Ec.
in High School in MPLS, MN, then received Design/Merchandising
Training at Anoka Institute, again in Minnesota.
Setting up shop in the Twin Cities was Great, because it
was a large area and I had a large customer base to draw from
and got a chance to work with a lot of different people with
all kinds of projects.
When I came here many years ago, I had the opportunity to
be on “NEWS AT NOON’
with JIM KING. What a great guy! And I would sew on camera,
show gadgets and machines that had just come on the market
and show the viewers patterns from the pattern companies that
were on the market and how they could modify them to suit
their purposes. It was great fun!
I have also had the opportunity to model some of my designs
(as well as clothing of other manufacturers) in local Fashion
Shows, THE GOLD BOOK and on TV!

So, with all of my Formal Training, Work Experience, and
Related Work, I have developed a great SENSE OF STYLE, COLOR,
and PROPORTION that helps me to be the best in CONSTRUCTION
NOW, there is no excuse to bring any of your clothing that
needs help, to a service business that just has someone doing
minimal alterations “on the side”!
When you have an IDEA about CREATING an original, or go SHOPPING
and can’t decide whether you want to KEEP A GARMENT,
just call me and you can bring it to my shop and we can discuss
the pros and cons!
been a loyal customer of Georgine's for over 20 years. She
does excellent work and expert alterations for me. Georgine
tailors my professional clothing for me as well as my casual
clothing, along with repairs when needed. I refer customers
to her all the time. Her quality of workmanship is outstanding.
I tell my friends and co-workers that whenever I purchase
clothing, it goes straight to Georgine's first. She is very
convenient to work with for appointments for first and sometimes
a second fitting (when needed)."
"We can't say enough about the quality and skill
Georgine brings to her work. Not only do we count on her expertise
to complete necessary alterations perfectly, but we also rely
on Georgine to advise us on the overall fit of our clothing.
She is a consummate professional, committed to completing
projects on time, and a true pleasure to work with!"
