RETHINK Tailoring and Sewing Lounge’s mission is to get as many garments that ALREADY exist back into rotation so we work on garments 1 year or older, and mend garments of all ages.

Our storefront opened on March 14th, 2020 at 3449 Bloomington Avenue, and closed the next day due to COVID-19.

We have embraced a multitude of projects to help out in our community over 2020, including making masks for hospitals, homeless shelters, the encampment, and other community organizations in need. We also took on an emergency project upcycling 205 hospital gowns in isolation gowns for an elderly case facility that ended up with over 200 positive COVID-19 cases. This was community funded, and we are so thankful we were able to devote a few weeks to figuring out how to do it and then making it happen. Want to know more about RETHINK? Even though the campaign is done, our Kickstarter lays it out best! https://rethinktailoring.com/kickstarter

Get them revamped! Contact us if you want to know when we can do fittings again! Email info@rethinktailoring.com or call us (612)540-7411.
