Alterations/Tailors in Bern

Checked the threads - and there is not one for Bern...

I need someone to do some alterations, hems, shorten a raincoat, taking in a few things, repairs, that sort of thing in Bern, or Thun or somewhere in between.

I figure it will be expensive, but less so than replacing the items outright. And if the person's good - it's worth it.

Any recommendations, or anyone to stay away from?

Thanks!
Elaine

Re: Alterations/Tailors in Bern

If you can come to Basel, I can do it for you. I'm not well organised yet, I'm getting ready to open my own business at home in Alterations, Design, etc.

I have no idea what is the price on the market for that kind of work here...

Re: Alterations/Tailors in Bern

Thanks so much for the offer. I'd like to find something a bit closer, but I'll keep you in mind. Good luck with your business. I have no idea what people charge here either, so I'll do some checking.

Re: Alterations/Tailors in Bern

Just had a couple of pairs of pants shortened in Zurich 20 meters from stadelhofen. 25 CHF each and one week waiting. They told me if I wanted them done the same day, it would cost 40CHF.
