RETHINK is not your typical tailoring shop.

RETHINK’s mission is to keep as many garments out of the landfills as possible. Here’s how we do it:

CLASSES & Assisted Sewing Lounge:

Have you been wanting to learn to sew or mend your wardrobe? If you don’t have a machine yet, our Hand-Mending Basics Class or Intro to Visible Mending are both perfect places to start learning to fix your wardrobe. If you have a machine, and want to become better friends, take Meet your Machine! For our other classes, you can either bring your own machine or use one of ours. See all of our sewing, alteration, mending, and upcycling classes we offer here. Don’t see what you want to learn? We can do private lessons for $45/hr so just send us an email to info@rethinktailoring.com to let us know what you want to learn! Our Assisted Sewing Lounge ($15/hr or $14/hr with the punchcard) are on the 1st & 3rd Fridays of the month 1-8pm! This is available to past students, with access to a regular sewing machine if needed, cutting tables, tools, dress forms, thread, etc. If students have a few questions while they work independently, we are here to help! Email info@rethinktailoring.com to reserve a spot, or just drop on by on the 1st or 3rd Friday of the month!


Let your child explore their creativity through sewing, upcycling, and textile art with The Upcyclers. RETHINK is all about keeping materials from the landfills so all projects will be planned out using second-hand materials, found objects, and scraps. Find our Upcycling Camps for ages 6-12 here (no experience necessary) or our Teen Upcycling Camps for ages 10+ here (sewing experience required).


At RETHINK Tailoring, we sell clothing designs that are upcycled in house from materials collected from the community through our #RETHINKTrashTalk unusable garment collection. We also sell owner Kristen’s line of Resizable Kids Clothing Ginger Bean), clothing/accessories made by or in collaborations with other local artists, locally made soap/shampoo bars/shave pucks, and masks cut from deadstock and secondhand fabrics. Shop online or in person M-F 3-6 and Sat 10-2pm, masks required to enter. 


If you would like to join our waitlist to have preloved garments (1 year or older) from your closet upcycled, updated, let out, etc. email info@rethinktailoring.com about your project to join the list! We will email you when it’s your turn, and if you already had a taken care of elsewhere, no worries! In the meantime, you can also join our email list.
*Please no walk-ins for repairs or tailoring.


Want something repaired? From denim repair, zipper replacements, fixing holes in sweaters and t-shirts, to creative repairs, can can likely help! Email us about it and we’ll set up a repair consult with one of our tailors! If you want to learn, we’d love to teach you (see classes above)! We are unable to work on leather/fur. No drop-ins please! We want to make sure you meet with a tailor specializing in your repair when you come!
