Pros: fast and good and cute

Someone told me about this place so I gave it a try. I've never had clothes fit so well. The owner is Dana and she is amazing, very down to earth, realistic and honest. I'm very hard to fit, but she knew what she was doing so it made thing very easy.

I needed a suit tailored for a wedding and I had read about Arachne's in a magazine so I thought I'd give it a try.\r\nThinking it wouldn't be busy on a Saturday morning I took my suit over there. Boy was I wrong, it was standing room only. I've never been to a tailor shop where you had to wait in line for a dressing room and the tailor is a cute young red head, not some old guy. The funny part is she ended up not tailoring anything for me. She said the sales person sold me the wrong size and I should take it back. She was right, went one size down and it fit perfect. Its hard to find honesty like that these days!!! I'll be coming back to this place!!!!

I have taken my clothes to be altered at various cleaners and have almost always walked away disappointed. When a friend recommended Arachne's Thimble to me I decided to give it a chance. I was surprised at the prices but when I got my dress back I knew it was worth it. It fit perfectly. From now on I will bring my important outfits for them to fix to avoid ANY mistakes or redo's. As for their customer service, it was great. What happened to that girl with the funny name? I liked her. What is MOST important to me is the work is done properly.

Pros: friendly and knowledable staff, cute clothes out front, quick turnaround, quality work

Cons: parking, far from my home, high prices

A friend told me this place was the best and after getting my suits tailor there I see why they were voted ""best tailor in the east bay"" I had lost over 50 pounds and needed all my suits recut. I was told by other tailors that it couldn't be gone, but this place proved them all wrong.

I was sincerely overcharged for simple alternations. In addition, the service was rude and condesending. Dropped off two dresses for alternations. One had quite a bit of work done, for the standard fee of $35. When I picked up the second 2-piece dress, which had very minimal work done, I was charged $70. When I questioned the price, I was told ""it's a 2 piece outfit"". The tone and manner of the person assisting me was rude beyond belief. Their fees are not posted, and no effort was made to communicate the higher fee on the second dress at the time the clothes were dropped off. I was quoted $35 per outfit. As the $70 alteration was mainly a hem and a slight adjustment, I feel robbed. To add insult to injury, they were just plain rude. I will never return, even though I frequently need alternation work. I will go anywhere but here.\r\n\r\n

I was looking online for Arachne's hours and phone number when I came across these reviews. Who is Annie anyway? Dana owns Arachne's Thimble. I know cause I have been a loyal customer since she was working out of her home in Berkeley. In fact I am crazy fan about her work!! It was hard to find someone who understood what it was I wanted done then do it and do it right. With other alteration shops there would be too many times I would have clothes returned to me rigged but not properly executed. I know I can count on Arachne's Thimble getting the job done properly and still have it look GREAT! She is a true professional.

The review below is not accurate. The business ""rkbedel"" is referring to is actually down the street. I had a suit tailored at both places and the other business, where Amy is, did an okay job, but when I went to Dana at Arachne's, her work was awesome! She was patient with what I wanted done to my suit. Since her work was so superb, I recommended my friend get her new evening gown tailored there. Again, Dana did an awesome job!

My old tailor moved to L.A. so using City Search to help me find new/GREAT restaurants I decided to try it for finding a tailor. Annie murder my cashmere suit worth over $4,000. She kept it for over 4 month trying to fix but was unsuccessful...but still charged me $160. Please stay away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
