The Hemmingbird 

Clothing Alterations for Women and Children

***Exciting News! The Hemmingbird has landed!***


I am blessed to have the most amazing clients, and I want to be able to serve all of you to the best of my ability! Therefore, my new shop is open for business.  For directions, hours of operation, and to book a fitting appointment, click here.

How I Do Things...

  • I offer alterations for all women and all children under the age of 18 provided that a female guardian is present at the time of the fitting.  I do not provide alterations for men.  

  • I do not work on wedding gowns. I do, however, work on bridesmaids gowns, Mother of the Bride/Groom outfits, flower girl dresses and ring bearer's suits.

  • Turn around time can vary from 1 to 3 weeks depending on the season. I am only one woman, so call me ASAP for time-sensitive work.

What clients have to say...

Juliane M.

Kirsten was great to work with. I had the seam in the sleeve lining of a new-ish winter coat come apart. She was able to fix it in a timely manner and the coat is useable once again! I would highly recommend her.

Heidi M.

I used The Hemmingbird for a bridesmaid dress last month. Communication was ongoing. I love that she came to my house to do the fitting...can't get more convenient than that! I will absolutely be a returning customer. The dress fit *perfectly.* 

Andrea B.

Kirsten’s work is impeccable. I have been so happy with her services hemming formal dresses and creating from scratch a couple of unique items. Kirsten is professional, creative, dependable, and simply a delight!
