I can’t recommend Srey enough. She is so patient & knowledgeable. I’m starting out learning to sew and she showed me all the features of my new sewing machine, taught me to thread it and ran through the basics of sewing. She was so helpful & great with communication. Highly recommend!

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.
