Keep It Clean


“Exquisite craftsmanship”
“I have no idea how she does it”


You are miracle workers! I couldn’t be happier with the work that you did. The dress is perfect and there is absolutely no indication that there was ever any damage (or repairs) done! Amazing work! Thank you so much!!!

I live in the greater boston area and mailed in two cashmere golf vests that were gifts from my wife. I cannot believe what a wonderful job they did. I am so glad that the folks at Alter Knit are keeping this profession alive and that I didn’t have to throw out my sweaters. Thank you Alter Knit!

Night and Day!!!! from the botched up hack job my dry cleaners did to one of my favorite sweaters, my friend saw and referred me to Alter Knit. Now they know how to fix holes and they are super courteous, they told me how the repair would look and it was better than I thought they could do –Love Them!!!!!!!

I had two merino wool sweaters that I Loved even after twenty years. Alterknit completely and beautifully redid the stitching on the crew necks so I should have another twenty years!

Thanks to Alterknit my grandmother’s beautiful hand knit afghan was restored to perfection. I’m so happy to have this heirloom looking so nice for my family once again.

I discovered you quite accidentally and am so fortunate. My Brunello Cucinello sweater is brand new again. Thank you.

I was a lucky lady to find Alterknit and the amazing skills of Miriam. I work at Calypso St.Barth in NYC and tell all my customers about her. She did a meticulous job shortening two long cashmere duster cardigans from my store. I was thrilled at the exquisite craftsmanship it must have taken to shorten the very fine weave of the garment. You can not tell where the shortening begins or ends. I have no idea how she does it- but will go to her only to alter and repair any of my fine knits.

What an incredible service Alter Knit has been for me over the past four years. They have altered and repaired all my sweaters both owned and those purchased. Shortening, lengthening, making smaller, whatever needed to be done. They have been a lifesaver and the work is so professional. I cannot live without them!

Alterknit repaired my sweater so that the very large snag on the front of a $1000 designer garment was completely invisible. Alterknit also designed an extremely clever and difficult repair on a Chanel dress so that the dress is not only wearable again but one would not notice the work! Their communication is friendly and prompt and collaborative. This repair service is worth every penny and very reasonable when one considers the labor involved and the cost of replacing a damaged garment. They now have a moth-eaten cashmere sweater of mine for repair I recommend Alterknit without reservation! Try it and you will not be disappointed.
