The potential loss of a keepsake? We hope not. Let's see if we can help Shari find a trustworthy seamstress. She writes:
I bought an antique child's blanket before my children were born, and one of my boys has latched onto it as his own. He's four now, and he LOVES this thing, sleeps with it every night. It has been getting worse for the wear. But last night -- the top layer tore right down the middle. Help! I've had seamstress/repair work (hemming, darning holes, etc.) done in town before, but not by anyplace good enough that I'd trust my son's precious baby blanket to them! Can anyone recommend a good seamstress/repair shop, where they do great work?
