RETHINK Tailoring and Sewing Lounge’s mission is to keep as much out of the landfills as possible. Here’s how we do it:
- We empower individuals to repair and sew their own wardrobes through our classes
- We sell our upcycled designs in person at 3449 Bloomington Ave and online, which are upcycled from damaged garments and unwanted materials collected from the community.
- We mend garments for clients (email to set up repair consult)
- We only tailor and upcycle preloved garments (email to get on the waitlist
Our storefront opened on March 14th, 2020 at 3449 Bloomington Avenue, and closed the next day due to COVID-19. Our focus changed many times to best meet the needs of the community. We are still building our business back to our original vision, but it takes time. We are currently hosting daily classes, and upcycling more designs for sale.
We currently have a waitlist for any tailoring that requires a fitting. If you want to learn how to complete your project yourself, we would love to mentor you through it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org about your project to join the waitlist, or with any questions, and see what classes are are currently offering here.
Come shop our Green Boutique with upcycled clothing and jewelry by us and other local artists.

We are open for shopping and online order pickups M-F 1-6 and Sat 10-2pm, masks required to enter.
