seamstress and engraving [Jul. 26th, 2010|12:00 pm]

Two recommendations needed:

1. I need to get my wedding dress altered. Any suggestions for a fabulous seamstress? I would rather not just drop it off at some random dry cleaning place that also "does alterations" and pray for the best.

2. I am also looking for recommendations on a place other than Things Remembered to get something engraved, namely a watch.

I live in North Kingstown but am willing to travel for great service and a good deal.

I'd try calling the local bridal shops to see if they would do an alterations on a dress they didn't sell. I don't blame you for avoiding a dry cleaners.

Providence Watch Hospital might be the place to see about getting your watch engraved. Otherwise, do you have a jeweler you trust? Most of them do engraving - I had my wedding bands done at one in East Providence. Sadly they're no longer in business.
