Heidi the Cycling Seamstress



Welcome! I am Heidi the Cycling Seamstress

I am a seamstress by trade and have over 20 years experience sewing.  I have sewn all matter of items from costume garb, every day clothing, and home decor items. I can help you with alterations, custom embroidery and clothing creation. Some of my alterations include adding zippers, taking in jeans, hemming pants, maxi dresses and special occasion dresses.  I have a love of the environment and sell ready made environmentally friendly items like unsponges, unpaper towels, family cloth, and reusable shopping bags.  I also sell fun stuff like embroidered patches, book marks, stuffies, fabric scrap jewelry and some paracord items. Check out my online shop for ready made items!
