My name is Katarina - Thread and Needle is a small home-based studio in Cheltenham specialising in all clothing alterations and home design. I have more than ten years' experience in sewing, whether it is mending clothes, repairing tears or making new things.

Creating and crafting has always been my thing and having two boys, mending clothes and making school costumes for them made me realise how much I enjoy sewing and creating. My passion for sewing started to grow into something bigger so I started to challenge myself with creating new designs from cushions and aprons to handbags and other valued keepsakes for my home and the homes of my friends and customers. My designs are now available on Etsy.

For the past five years I have been working for a company selling suits where I have gained exceptional knowledge of performing all alterations and repairs. Most things can be repaired but there can always be exceptions. I am happy to discuss this with you over the phone. Being a working mum of two boys I only work by appointments which can be arranged over the phone 07914 635605, by text, by email or an online message. Please allow one working week for alterations to be completed and two weeks at busier times.

I take pride delivering quality products and services to all my customers and work with them until they are fully satisfied with the results.

'Really pleased with the prompt and perfect dress alterations. Highly recommend.'

'We needed a prom dress altered in quite a quick turnaround and that’s what we got. A super job and in no time at all. Thank you so much. We would absolutely recommend Kat.'
