Custom Made Drapes

Welcome and Mabuhay!


Need to have clothes that fit well? Let me use my expertise and find the perfect fit for you. I can alter them and help you achieve the results you are looking for.


Hi, my name is Mary Stoner. After arriving in the U.S. with my family in 2008, I decided that I wanted to continue doing the work that I love. I had spent eight years working as a seamstress in my native Philippines, and later spent another eight years working and sewing in Taiwan where I met my husband. We now have a beautiful boy, Will, who is growing up faster than we could have imagined.

(Will is now a productive artist. You can view his work by clicking the link below.)


My mission, simply put, is to provide high quality alterations and tailoring at affordable prices. I look forward to working with you. 


Below is a list of the services I provide and prices. Please contact me to discuss your needs.
Express same day delivery is available upon request.
