Alterations By Elena

I am a trained and certified Master Cutter who is dedicated and highly skilled with over 20 years of practical experience in solving every customer's alteration, adjustment, or modification needs.  Because style matters to all of us I understand and appreciate how important one's clothing is.  If you have a unique idea, a creative flare, or simply need a  slight modification to existing or new clothes, you'd be amazed what we can do together and how good you'll look after the Work is done!    

I received my training at the Gomel Vocational-Technical School No. 20 of Population Consumer Services in the former Soviet Union (Belarus).  For 2-years I studied:  Design, Production Training, Drawing, Technology, Equipment, Professional Ethics, Home Economics, and other subjects.  I continued my Education at the Mozyr State Pedagogical Institute, where I received a Master Degree and Certification as a Teacher of General Technical Disciplines in 1990.  Ten years later I immigrated to the U.S. where I continued my Education at the Center for Montessori Teacher Education / NY.  

I was a Home-Economics teacher for 17-years at City School No. 39 in Gomel, Belarus.  While in the United States I have been employed as a Professional Seamstress and Teacher.  After returning to Canandaigua in 2007, and due to popular demand by those aware of my professional sewing skills, I decided to devote all of my time and talent on being an Alterationist. 
Although, I am trained in all areas of Design, Cutting, and Tailoring, I do not have all of the Commercial sewing equipment needed to perform specific “professional” results; so, my Work for you is limited to that of altering and tailoring garments, with a special focus on ladies and children’s clothing.      

Because style matters:  My pledge and promise is to treat every Client and their clothing, respectfully, honestly, and kindly with every stitch of the needle.  Good Tailoring and the Alteration of clothes is a lot more than just seams and hems.   It's all about YOU, style, materials, and fabrics that will be tailored to your liking via my training and professional experience as a Master Seamstress.  I love what I do and that will make you look your very best at reasonable prices.
