"Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion.
Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever."

Ralph Lauren

What Feisty Needle clients have to say

An absolutely AMAZING job on my wedding dress alterations. 

Their attention to detail was excellent.
Highly recommend!

Expensive silk shirt + over hot iron = much swearing and despair! 

On way to ragbag I thought last chance ask Feisty Needle.

"Maybe we could" says the clever lady. Outcome?  Shirt fixed…  joy and rapture.
