CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

For other jeans alterations, Self Edge sent me around the corner to Stanton Tailor. They understand jeans and do a great job. But sadly they don't have a chain stitch machine, so if you want tapering and hemming it's two stops. At least the shops are close.If you want a chain stitch go to Blue in Green or Self Edge. If you don’t care, then go to any tailor or dry cleaners.
i am sad to report that my pair of jeans was absolutely destroyed and rendered useless by Blue In green.Thank you so much!
I'll look into those two.
Sam Wazin finished my coat and did a good job despite a very short turnaround.I have a D'avenza cashmere coat that needs some small changes on the half-belt on the back (mainly just the length) but I'd like to have it done quick.
Who is good but has a fast turn around?
Very surprised to hear as I’ve never had a problem with them. Did you buy the jeans there? Did they compensate?i am sad to report that my pair of jeans was absolutely destroyed and rendered useless by Blue In green.
I requested no break and they made it hang about 1” higher than where it should be.
Really disappointed and I can’t imagine any cleaners doing such a poor job as to make the pants unwearable.
Definitely do not recommend Blue in green to anyone who needs their jeans altered.
+1 on Sam, I use him exclusively other than just hemming (that goes to dry cleaner next to me...). I’m sure I might be able to find someone does same job for cheaper but he is consistent and 1 minute away from me so I goes to him exclusively.Sam Wazin finished my coat and did a good job despite a very short turnaround.
He spends most of his time in his new tribeca location. He is only on 57th street on Friday and Saturday’s.+1 on Sam, I use him exclusively other than just hemming (that goes to dry cleaner next to me...).

he has a 2nd locations now I don’t know how he split the time though.

I have the same question (albeit not precisely in Crown Heights).I just moved to Brooklyn (crown heights). Anyone recommend a new tailor for basic alterations (hemming, sleeves, etc) ? The closer the better
What neighborhood?I have the same question (albeit not precisely in Crown Heights).
Also, this might be the wrong side of the forum for this, but would it be reasonable to take more directional/designer stuff to the tailors folks here are recommending (everyone seems to love Sam Wazin)? (Most immediately, a Yohji jacket, but in general, too.) I assume the skills involved aren't an issue, just perhaps a matter of being attuned to the aesthetics of the pieces being altered.
