Seamstress Recommendation?

Good Morning Ladies,
     Can anyone recommend a seamstress in the Greater Cinci/NKY area?
     I went to Rip n Stitch in Kenwood and didn't get a very good reception, kinda felt like she didn't want to fool with my dress.  Anyhow, I'd prefer to go somewhere based on referral than to just wing it.  It'd help if their prices are reasonable too.
Thanks!

    Stitches by Pauline.. she does it out of her house...
    I get my dress back next week so I can let you know how it fits, but she was great to work with!

    I haven't seen her yet, although she's had great reviews on this board: Lori Schur. She's in Fairfield though, I'm not sure if that's out of your way. She works out of her home. Send me a PM if you'd like her phone number!

    I used Kim Dao's Alterations in Cincinnati - she was recommended to me by another knottie.  She was quick, did a great job on my dress, and was reasonably priced.

    Special Occasions, a small bridal shop on the east side.  The two ladies who do alterations there are awesome!  They're super nice, do amazing work and in a timely manner as well.  Not sure where you are located but if you're close I would absolutely recommend them.  They put in so much extra time and effort into making my dress fit and have a good bussle, they definitely went out of there way.

    I've been working with Margaret Oldfield on the west side.  She's a little far out if you're not a west sider, but I drive all the way from Mason to get to her because I think she's that good!  She's a miracle worker and so nice to work with.  Let me know if you want her number!

    Love, love, love her! She is more than reasonable and is so friendly, I couldn't imagine my dress in anyone else's hands. Also, she is storing my dress at no additional charge until the week before at which time she is having it pressed/steamed as well as my veil! She also sells accessories such as jewelry and veils much more affordable to some other places!

    I second Kim Dao Alterations.  She did my bustle and it was affordable and well done.

    I cannot recommend Lori highly enough.  She has done my rehearsal dinner and reception dresses and has done an amazing (and affordable) job.  She is really nice and is flexible.  You will not be sorry if you choose to work with Lori!

    I don't think it'd be a problem for me to just post the phone number, as you'd probably be able to get it by googling her anyway:
    513-825-1987

    Good luck!

    I would absolutely recommend Frances Hoffman, she is located on Highland Avenue in Ft. Thomas, KY. She does all of my alterations for everything from prom to my bridesmaid dress and my sisters wedding dress. She is incredibly affordable, reliable, and will make you feel entirely comfortable!!

    Sue's Creations in Montgomery (near go bananas comedy club) is who I used! She is awesome. Great work, great prices, and super fast! I will be taking all of my alterations to her from now on!

    Hi All -

    Just wanted anyone who reads this to know that I have moved from the Fairfield area to the Maineville area.  My new phone number is (513) 583-5350.  I look forward to helping brides look beautiful on their special day!
