We provide an occasional service for people of Castlemaine and surrounds who need canvas repairs (occasional due to work load in other areas).
We believe items that can be repaired, should be repaired and not thrown away. Sometimes the economics of this gets a bit fuzzy, but it’s always worth a chat and a look.
Please note we specialise in heavy duty and unusual fabrics — please take your clothing repairs to the excellent alterations people in Castlemaine.
Sometimes you might only need:
- a piece of velcro attached
- a loop of webbing sewn on
- an eyelet put in just the right place.
- Chairs that live outside usually need replacement parts. Sometimes that’s a new cushion cover, a quick stitch line with our UV resistant thread or a new part sewn to fit.
- Zips can be a bit tricky to replace or fix, but worth taking a look.
Bring them in and we’ll take a look, but first please email or txt a photo of the problem to save an unneccessary trip.
If you are handy around the sewing machine, sometimes it might make sense dollarwise if you do the bulk of the work and just bring the bulky parts to us for our heavy duty machine.
- Things we can extend the life of are
- ute toneau covers
- bag straps.

Helping out our local school with repairs to their stilts
These deck chairs were not designed to be repaired — a very solid aluminium frame was let down by a poorly designed seat that degrades very quickly in the weather. We gave the chair a greatly extended life by sewing a new seat attachment.
