As the daughter of a seamstress, I know a thing or two about quality alterations. Unfortunately I do not have at my disposal the means to do my own tailor-work in Atlanta, so I have been on the hunt for nearly three years to find an honest and dependable seamstress. On the recommendation of a friend I took a vintage cocktail dress to A Stitchworks in hopes they could two simple things: take the hem line up 2 inches and take the bust/waist line in. With ample time to work, (a full week) not only did they butcher the hem line of the dress, but they short cut the work on the bust/waist line by tacking the new seam in place, folding it over and sowing it shut without removing the bulk/leftover fabric. Now a once curve-hugging dress has two very visible seams down the sides, making my shape look more like a lumpy sack of potatoes than the true figure 8 that I am. Then, to add insult to injury, they charged me $56 for work a two year old with a blunt needle could accomplish. I cannot imagine why anyone would charge someone so much for such poor craftsmanship. I will NEVER take any of my clothing to this chop shop again and I strongly recommend you don't, either!

A Stitchworks is the most reliable and accommodating embroidery and monogram company that I've found. I travel from Alpharetta to Marietta to use their service because they treat me well and even have accommodated my last minute needs when others would not. I have been using them ever since. The quality of their Embroidery and Monograms is made to last. We used this company to embroider 15 Beach Sheets with people's names and they all turned out flawlessly. I trusted them completely with a baby's first Christmas monogrammed quilt. This husband and wife company works hard to make their product the best available, and to keep their customers happy. I tell my friends and family if they ever need embroidery or monogramming that A Stitchworks is the only company I trust.
