Not at all what I was told. Work was fair at best. Christians are having a hard enough time as is. What we don't need is more like this one claiming to be a "good" Christian. My recommendation is to avoid at all costs.

I hate to give a bad review but I hope I keep what happened to me from happening to someone else. I took several items to Fran (who is a lovely lady) based on the good reviews here and trusted that she knew what she was doing (in spite of the fact that I questioned a few things she said during the time we were discussing my alterations). When I got my clothes back, I wasn't particularly happy with any of them but there are 2 items that I will have to pay to have altered again elsewhere. She may have actually ruined a brand new skirt that still had the tags on it. I feel like if it was out of her comfort zone, she should have told me. I could have either gone a different route (hemmed in stead of taken in the waist...which she only did on one side and which puckers horribly) or sent it back for a refund. If you have VERY simple alterations, I guess you would be safe, but anything past that, go elsewhere.

I own a local ladies gym and the vinyl on a couple of my machines was beginning to split. Fran brainstormed and came up with a brilliant idea. She found clear vinyl to wrap around the padding. Fran was very professional and quick. The machines are doing excellent and the members have been very delighted with the new coverings. I recommend Fran's Alterations to everyone, whether you need a seat on your machine fixed or your clothing altered. She is the best!

After losing weight, I needed to find someone I could TRUST to take in my pants. Heard about Fran's from the gym that I go to and have been totally overwhelmed by her professionalism and her knowledge on how to do fix my pants so they would look good. She honestly told me how much could be taken in before I would have to buy new pants. I would trust her with ALL my alterations. My daughter also took some pants to Fran's and was impressed, she couldn't even see where Fran had taken in the waist. IMPRESSIVE!!! Fran's service is also fast. I could go on and on, but you need to check out Fran's for yourself, you won't be sorry. Definitely will keep going to Fran's. She is my new friend!!

First of all, she is a fair and honest person and does a amazing job, the prices are very good, she did 2 of my coats resizing them down and they fit really good. I will be a repeat customer for sure.

Fran's Alterations did a wonderful job on hemming curtains for me. Friendly and upbeat Fran will make you more than welcome. I highly recommend everyone that needs alterations or any sewing needs to be sure to Check out Fran's Alterations.

On a number of occasions, I have had to make special requests from Fran at the last minute. She has always come through for me and always goes above and beyond what I request. I know that if you do business with Fran, not only will you get very well-made/altered items - you will also find a wonderful new friend!

I asked Fran to make me a veil for my biker-style wedding and she didn't even blink an eye at the strange request. She did an AWESOME job on a white satin "doo-rag" style veil that I will forever treasure as a special wedding day keepsake! She is very efficient and the job was done in plenty of time for the wedding. You will not regret taking your garments to Fran!
