Should I be concerned about this?

Went to my dry cleaner to get something rewoven. Apparently they work with a reweaving specialist. I was told (a) I would not be able to speak to this specialist (b) I had to pay a deposit before they would allow me to drop off the garment for reweaving. Sketchy or par for the course in re weaving?

Ask to see examples of the work. It's a reasonable request. If they can not comply, or the work is poor, look elsewhere.

It may also be able to find garment repair shops online that will accept an item posted to them.

To reweave something, you need a reweaver, not a dry cleaner asking for quirky things. So find yourself a reweaver.

The dry cleaner works with a reweaver who actually does the reweaving. It is the only reweaver I have found in the city.

Go to the best alterations tailor in your area. If you do not know who he or she is,
ask at the best menswear shop. They probably use an outside tailor for special
or difficult alterations. When you find the tailor ask for a recommendation for a
reweaver. That's what I did when I found a moth hole in one of my favorite
bulky knit sweaters. A perfect job. No deposit.
