Knitwear repair: Darning vs. reweaving

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a place that will do darning repairs on knitwear? I have a couple sweaters that aren't expensive enough to warrant reweaving but have some small holes that should be easy to darn for someone with the requisite skills.

These guys in Gramercy will do a good job:

Alice Zotta is top notch D. I've used her on several occasions.

Do you use them for your dry cleaning and/or shirts? I use the one down the street a bit and am getting frustrated at the fact they ignore a lot of my instructions --- like please box the shirts...

For darning rather than reweaving? I've used her for reweaving and agree that she is great for that, but I have a few sweaters for which I'd be satisfied with $20 worth of darning rather than $100 worth of reweaving.

These are guys are the best in the neighborhood, and priced appropriately. I used the Korean place on Lex between 22nd and 23rd as my standard cleaner and Gramercy for the tricky stuff.

These are NY-centric replies. Does anyone know of a darning place in the Boston area or that is set up to handle business through the mail? I have a pair of cashmere-blend socks that I'd like to rescue but am happy to have fitted out with a pure-wool toe that nobody will ever see.
