Darn It is a specialist alterations, repairs and sewing business in Eccles near Manchester and is run by Elizabeth Charnley, a lifelong sewer and mender....

Our workshop is in a small complex with on-street parking and level access. 

Become part of a special band of loyal customers who have been using our services for many years.  We take pride in using specialist machines to give the required finish - invisible (blind) hems on skirts, trousers etc and curtain alterations - Cover stitch hems on stretch fabrics and overlocking/serging on seams & hems.  If we turn up your jeans we colour match the thread to as near original as we can or a Euro hem that keeps the original manufacturer's distressed hem or finish.

Our specialist service, the only one in the area, is to shorten curtains from top or hem, join curtains together and/or alter the heading type (eg) pencil pleat to eyelets.  Get that made-to-measure look for less!
We make cushions of all shapes and sizes. 
We make memo boards, bags and bunting.
