Sew What, I Sew

Custom sewing and repairs

Sew What I Sew is a custom sew shop in Cumberland, BC. Basically, we manufacture and repair anything that needs stitching. From your designs or mine, I can manufacture all types of custom-sewn products, including cordora, leather, vinyl, waterproof zippers, medical grade material, Vibram® soles, Five Ten Stealth® rubber (for climbing shoes), nylon rip stop, fleece, and Gortex™.

We do big jobs and we do little ones. This company was founded on the premise of the two ‘R”s: Repair and Re-use. How, may you ask?

One, we repair existing items. We have an in-house professional seamstress named Margaret who will repair or alter your clothes to fit you perfectly.

Two, our products are made to last. From custom boat cushions to hand-crafted leather bags, we believe that quality counts.

Three, we build speciality items to replace single-use materials like plastic wrap.  For commercial clients, we design and manufacture products to make your business more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable.

Durable goods are making come-back. We can’t afford throwaway culture in a non-renewable world. Please contact us if you have anything you’d like to have repaired or made, and help make garbage extinct!
