Top Sewing related questions

Taskers can sew any item for you, be it clothing, accessories, or upholstery. Sewing experts can make, repair, or alter fabric pieces, such as shirts, dresses, curtains, and seat covers. They can also add embellishments like embroidery onto clothes and other fabrics.

Taskers can help you with one-off sewing tasks or long-term sewing work. So whether you simply need a button sewn onto a blouse or a couple of mittens made for your business, Taskers can help! As long as a Tasker is available, you can get small or big tasks done.

You can either supply the sewing materials or have a sewing expert provide everything for the service. Tell us about your task, and we’ll connect you with sewers who’ll help ensure you get the perfect fabric or right colour of thread for your sewing task.  

Sewing services may take anywhere from an hour to a couple of days. Lead times depend on Tasker availability and skill, as well as the nature of the task.

Just tell us what you need, and available Taskers can start reaching out to you.  

Yes. Dressmakers and seamstresses have overlapping skills, but they differ in certain skill sets. In general, dressmakers specialise in making dresses. What’s more, dressmakers tend to have a wider range of skills, from designing a dress to putting fabrics together. Meanwhile, seamstresses or seamsters are considered a “jack of all trades” in sewing. Their main task is to sew garments together. 

Yes, we can help you find same-day sewing services. If you’re in a rush, simply tell us how soon you need the sewing service. We’ll then connect you with available sewing services near you. Nearby sewing services can come over as soon as possible and even sew your garment on-site. But if you’re busy running errands, your Tasker can instead pick up your item and bring it back to you once it’s repaired or altered.

Sewing experts can sew custom garments, including prom dresses, costumes, wedding dresses, and polo shirts. 

If you run a small business, put up a task and find an experienced sewer who can produce your products, be it womenswear or small mittens. When your pieces are ready, a fashion photographer can take amazing photos of your clothes – ready for posting on Instagram!
