With over 20 years experience, Barbara Blackwell has been providing quality Clothing Alteration & Soft Furnishings services to customers in and around Ambleside since 2005.
What started as a hobby progressed to doing clothing alterations from home before starting a business to make use of the experience gained over the years. We pride ourselves on offering a friendly and professional service to our customers.
We stock the full range of Iliv soft furnishings books and samples and the ranges are updated seasonally. We can provide linings of your choice and most heading styles are available.
Now a thriving business, we have carried out work for programmes broadcast on CBBC and ITV including Britain's Got Talent. We can travel within a reasonable distance to reach our Soft Furnishings customers and also welcome customers at the shop which is central to Ambleside. For clothing alteration customers we also have a fitting room available.
All clothing alterations and some soft furnishings are handled on site to ensure a quality service is offered.
